Hi, nice to meet you – I’m Matt, an international filmmaker based in London.

For over a decade I’ve directed, shot, and edited TV shows, short films, and digital content for some of the world’s biggest brands, such as Rolls Royce, BBC, and Guinness. I’ve worked extensively across Europe, and as far afield as India and the USA.

My work has won accolades from prestigious industry awards, such as EVCOMs and IVCAs, while a pilot I directed was commissioned by Channel 4 for a six-episode series. The series, Posh Dogs, can be found on Channel 4’s online platform, All4.

All of this has given me a skill set that makes me perfectly positioned to help your project connect with its audience through engaging and creative video content.

Don’t just take my word for it, though – have a look at what some of my clients say about my work here.

I own a Sony FS7, a Sony A7Rii and a range of sound and lighting, so can be available at short notice.

So , if you want to meet up for a coffee to discuss your project, or even just to chat about what makes Dumb and Dumber an under appreciated masterpiece, then get in touch.
