Der studierte Theaterwissenschaftler und promovierte Volkskundler Martin Vogg arbeitet seit 1990 als Projektmanager, Projektentwickler und Kurator für zahlreiche Kultur- und Tourismusprojekte vor allem in Niederösterreich.

Nebenbei ist er immer noch als Kurator und Autor tätig.

The two company founders Patrick Pleisnitzer and Clemens Kopetzky have been friends for over 20 years and originally come from a very different backgrounds and industries. Professional careers have, however, gradually converged in a congenial way over time, so that joint projects were the logical consequence.
The Clever Contents GmbH was founded due to the then existing new trend of “mobile videos” in the industry with the short-term partner Stefan Prilhofer (who later left the company to pursue his own exciting projects) in 2007.
However, with the foundation of the broadcasting chanel ORF III in 2011, the young company’s business took a different direction, focusing on cultural television - and developed a successful monthly magazine "Out of the Frame" (Aus dem Rahmen). In the course of the company’s reorganization to GmbH in 2012 Patrick Pleisnitzer became a managing director.
More commercial productions were added up to the repertoire such as the football magazine "The hottest league of Austria" (Die heißeste Liga Österreichs) für SchauTV and "What is your estimation?" (Was schätzen Sie..?), another regular format for ORF III, and a larger production facility became necessary. In November 2012, the team of Clever Contents, which has already grown and consisted of few people, celebrated its debut in Amerlingstraße 19 in Vienna 1060.
Since 2015, Clemens Kopetzky joined as managing director and the company has been growing steadily. The core team is extremely nice, multi-project-oriented and professional, freelance filmmakers are always handpicked. Clever Contents team is technically and professionally equipped and efficient to satisfy all the demands.
