Director Video, SCMP

Mat Booth spent 17 years at CNN working on projects around the world.  Working out of the Hong Kong Production centre, Mat covered the Olympic Games in Beijing, various live shows across Asia and Europe, helped set up CNN Philippines and CNN Indonesia, while always supporting the Post Production facilities back home.

Mat moved to the post of Head of Video with the South China Morning Post in 2017 to build a world class Video production unit.  Leveraging the power of social media and the latest digital media workflows, Mat has overseen an expansion of Video output to reach new viewers and experiment with new storytelling possibilities.  This has resulted in a massive rise in Video viewers and has significantly expanded the horizons of the SCMP.

All of this was done within the transformation of the SCMP from a traditional print newspaper to a global digital media service.
