New York, NY, USA


My name is Mathias Magnason and I am currently freelancing as an editor and documentary filmmaker in the New York area. Between 2010 and 2012 I worked as a director and consultant for the Chinese independant TV station NTDTV in New York creating award winning documentaries and TV series such as Journey To The East and Free China. Human Rights, and especially abuse of human rights in China has been a big part of my journalistic work for the last ten years. I have also done documentary film work in Africa through UN and SIDA, and SVT in sweden. My two most recent works was editing a one hour documentary for Swedish Television about a native swedish musician working to bring the ancient Sami folk song to life again, and a shorter segment for NHK Science and Nature in Japan. I would like to hunt for stories about ordinary people entering extraordinary circumstances, discovering new aspects of life and themselves in the process. Universal questions and issues channelled through what is deeply personal and specific, is what interest me the most.
