video & lighting designer
Matt is pursuing his BFA in lighting design at CalArts. At a young age he became fascinated with graphic design and theater. Matt started out in theatrical lighting design for seven years during middle an high school. During his last year in high school he started to pursue lighting for concerts and nightlife. This resulted in busking lighting and video for Club Vinyl in Denver. This then lead Matt to revisit his love for graphic design through motion graphics and content design. He later created content for G. E. M. for her performance at the QQ Music Awards. He also recently created a content package with over 200 VJ loops and images for the media server ImageCue.
Matt started to experiment with motion graphics in 2012 by rendering things in Cinema 4D. Constant tinkering in the program lead to him to create videos that he would use for theatrical performances and concert events. Matt later created a library of VJ loops for himself and others to use as visuals for concerts and events.
