In this talk, Matthias looks back at some of the projects he's worked on since then, culminating in the recently released "The Matrix Awakens" demo for Unreal Engine 5. We've all heard the saying 'Do what you love and you'll never work another day in your life', but how do you stay in love with your hobby for more than a quarter century?
