CLIENT REACTIONS

Man, the video is WAY better than we expected. You guys knocked it out of the park, and friends that know us well have said that represents what we do here better than anything they’ve ever seen.
— Michael Bream - EV West
Matt is dedicated to his craft and staying abreast of new technologies and techniques, and he is proficient at communicating his thoughts and ideas. Matt is great at directing talent and managing clients and production crews.
— Dee Dee Woods - UPMC
[Matt] has a gift for coaching even the most camera-shy individual to candidly discuss their life and research, deliver scripted material and even act out narrative sequences. Matt is a collaborative director who will raise the bar on any production.
— Mike Hennessey - Carnegie Science Center
Matt has been a fantastic partner for our company...his directing skills have also been a very valuable asset, in particular with a spot featuring a rather complicated product we are releasing into market. He was able to translate the intricacies of the product very well and help our sales team member featured in the video to deliver a clear and concise message. I’m very grateful to be a partner with Matt!
— Larissa Murphy - First Commonwealth Bank
