History: At the end of the last century Mathias went the Film school route via some Motion Graphics and 3D animation training at the Capital School situated in the deep-freeze warehouse by the docks. It was not at all that hostile as it sounds. After some cloak and dagger freelanceing and employment in the business he started Oddity in 2002.
