Since starting an independent production company in 2013, Tobias has worked on a number of commercials and documentaries.
His first feature documentary, “1000 Hands of the Guru: Saving Bhutan’s Sacred Arts”, told the story of an American art conservation who master crosses paths with four Bhutanese monks and a royal scholar, embarking on a lifelong journey to restore sacred scrolls to their former glory. He followed the Conservation Workshop team over the course of three years as they raced against a mass extinction of Bhutan’s culture, and learning the art of letting go along the way.
