Writer / Director
In this TVC for London Met University, Matt penned an original poem to lead the intertwining tales of three less commonplace characters in their pursuit of further education. Tonally striking with a resonant message, it celebrates everyone's right to do something they love.
From Muay Thai in Bangkok's backstreets, hiking across open rooftops above Stockholm and Arctic adventures in northernmost Canada, through to drumming at the Gathering of Nations festival in New Mexico and bareback horse racing in the mountains of Georgia. With amazing people, cultures, locations and crew this series for NatGeo was a perfect storm for extreme filmmaking.
In this TVC and VOD series for the new Isuzu
D-Max, Matt co-produced and unit directed the 30 crew location shoot. Following complex off-road driving challenges the shoot required multiple units including drone, russian arm, atv and multiple track ops.
