HELIOS was founded by Patrick Kofler, Martin Rattini, Mauro Podini and Günther Innerebner in 2001 as a creative collective combining graphic design, photography and filmmaking. While our company for many years produced documentaries and commercials for the local market we also developed a profound expertise in sustainable marketing with a strong focus on green mobility. Long term mobility campaigns for cities like Munich or the German region of Baden-Württemberg became an important part of the company’s portfolio.
With the establishing of the local Film Fund IDM in 2010 we became a reliable regional partner working on several service productions for international fiction and documentary features which eventually lead to the founding of our exclusive film branch HELIOS SUSTAINABLE FILMS in 2012.
Since then, international co-productions with partners in Germany, Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia followed. CEO Martin Rattini won the German Film Award as best producer for a children’s movie in 2018 and is member of the German and the European Film Academy. Besides producing he still very much enjoys working as DOP and photographer doing still photography for fiction features and cinematography for creative cinema documentaries or TV docs.
