Über Florian Maier

Florian Maier, founder and CEO of STEREOTEC, is one of the most renowned stereographers worldwide. Next to other international awards he is an eleven-time winner of the Lumiere Award for Outstanding Achievement (“Best Stereography”, three times “Best 3D Feature Film”, five times “Best Commercial” and twice “Best Shortfilm Live Action”), of the Advanced Imaging and 3D Society in Hollywood, the highest accolade for stereographers. Florian Maier has been pioneering 3D since he founded his company in 1997. Being the mastermind behind the construction of all STEREOTEC rigs, he has also been working as a senior stereographer for feature films like JOURNEY TO CHINA, RETURN OF VIY, HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS, VICKY AND THE TREASURE OF THE GODS, HYPE NATION, various commercials (Volkswagen, Sony, Red Bull,…), short films like BLOODDROP or CALL HER LOTTE, and many more. He was also Supervisor of the STEREOTEC 3D System on Ang Lee’s upcoming BILLY LYNN’S LONG HAVETIME WALK from Sony Pictures shot in 120 fps 4K 3D. Film schools, universities and professional 3D workshops request his expert knowledge. He has guided various workshops and master classes all over the world including Berlin, Beijing, Pusan, Hollywood, New York and Vancouver. Florian Maier believes that a stereographer should focus on creative decisions, which are driven by the completely new language of stereoscopic filmmaking. He is convinced that stereoscopic filmmaking will be successful, if it combines the artistic use of stereoscopic principles with technical precision, knowledge about human physiology, and a passion for filmmaking.
