Hi, my name is Matt! What's your name? Uh-huh. I see. That's a great name, nice to meet you!
You must be here because you love filmmaking as much as I do! Since this is the case, feel free to check out my work, but first, I'll tell you about myself.
I am currently a senior at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio where I am studying filmmaking. I enjoy many elements of film production including cinematography, lighting, sound design, writing and directing. I would love to become a cinematographer, and maybe someday a director! Some of the people who inspire me are Steven Spielberg, Gus Van Sant, David Boyd, Andrew Lesnie, Claudio Miranda, and Tim Burton. Some of my favorite films are:
Good Will Hunting (1997)
Life of Pi (2012)
The Departed (2006)
Spirited Away (2001)
The Breakfast Club (1985)
Slumdog Millionaire (2008)
the list goes on....
I think about filmmaking not as a career or a job, but as an art form, because I have always been an artist and always will be. It is my passion and my answer to "doing what makes you happy." I have no interest in having a lot of money or nice things, I only want to meet and inspire people through my passion, and I know filmmaking can take me there.
