My name is Matthew Biggs and I am from Grand Rapids, MI. I am currently working out of Los Angeles, CA. Here is a little background information about myself.
I developed a passion for still photography at a young age which crossed over to cinematography / filmmaking after I bought my first video camera. Since high school I knew I wanted to work in the film industry so I pursued film school at Brooks Institute of Photography. While at Brooks I was able to earn my BA in Film & Video Production with a concentration in commercial video, music videos, and corporate media. I also worked closely with the feature film students because working on movie sets has always been a goal of mine.
After college I moved to Los Angeles for a bit but work was slow and my student loans forced me back home to MI. Once I returned to Michigan I immediately started to network with the local film community and over the next few years was able to work on a number of feature films, commercials, and dance videos. While I was working and gaining real world experience I was able to pay off my student loans and save up enough money to once again move back to Los Angeles.
It is now 2014 and I am excited to give it another shot in the film industry back out west. I feel confident regardless of how things go because I know what I want to pursue in life and that’s all that matters. Hopefully this gives some idea of where I’m from and where I’m going. Feel free to contact me and ask any questions.
Thanks - Matt Biggs
