In 2016 he created the record label "infamous records", featuring artists from Berlin, Paris and Vienna. His own video production company "infamous pictures" counts more than 250 national and international commercial and video clip projects he directed / produced / filmed between 2010 and 2020

Max is best known for the visual universe he created around the music of TURBOBIER, LEMUR, MARTEN MCFLY and the political party BIERPARTEI - a disruptive project gone viral in summer 2019.

His short film l’Oasis celebrated it's premiere at Diagonale in 2019. Besides that, Hammels work inkludes video art and live camera for the Volkstheater and Burgtheater Wien.
