Matthias Mellinghaus, DGC

Producers

Matthias Mellinghaus began his journey in the film & television industry over 30 years ago after a competitive rowing career that culminated in an Olympic Gold medal.

In 1993, Mellinghaus completed the film directing program at the Konrad Wolf Film University in his native Germany. While based in Berlin, he directed feature-length documentaries for German television and worked as a 1st Assistant Director on German independent features. He later emigrated to Vancouver, where he worked as a 1st AD, Production Manager, and Line Producer on live-action features, such as Rachel Talalay’s The Dorm and David Rosenthal’s A Single Shot.

In 2014, Mellinghaus joined BRON Studios (first as Head of Production, then as VP of Production) where he spent the next five years overseeing the production of an array of both commercially successful and critically acclaimed feature films, including director Jason Reitman’s features Tully and The Front Runner, Jay Roach’s multiple award-winning Bombshell, and Barry Levinson’s WWII-era biographical feature The Survivor.

A member of the Directors Guild of Canada, Mellinghaus has been working for the past several years as a freelance Producer and Line Producer on film and TV productions in North American and Europe.
