Matthias likes to shoot moving images with all kinds of cameras. Since 2010 he has been driven by the question: what is possible for journalists with mobile phones? How can we use the latest apps and smaller devices like 360° cameras to tell compelling video stories and push the limits further and further? Now he is focussing on Augmented Reality apps for mobile storytellers. 
He is currently developing a  new cross-media series about climate change and future technologies for the NDR/ARD in Germany.
