Run

Brooks

We all run for different reasons. In this new piece for Brooks, Matthew tells three unique stories about why these folks get out and run. Their motivation is exceptional, but the simple act of running fires them up to do it day in and day out. Now we know what it means to be a…

Maglia Rosa

The Hampsten name is synonymous with legendary bike racing. In 1988, a kid from North Dakota stunned the international cycling community with a gutsy ride that won him the Giro d’Italia – one of only three Grand Tours on the cycling calender including the Tour de France (a race Hampsten was highly successful in as…

CMC “In This Life”

The simplicity of throwing rocks, swimming in the lake or just playing in the water is the perfect backdrop to the more serious tone of lessons learned in life. We shot these spots on the shores of Holland Lake and in Missoula, Montana. Director/DP: Matthew J. Clark Lead Designer:  Caleb Van Winkle Editor:  Duncan Sharp…

Thief

I bet you didn’t know that crabs can be thieves.  They’re sneaky.  Lucky, this one was under our control in a 3D world.  I shot the piece for the good folks at Straightface.  We got lucky with the weather.  The script called for sunny, warm climes.  We had cold and rainy – typical Seattle, until…

Windows 8 “Explore”

Pac 10 “25 Years”

Celebrating 25 years of women’s athletics in the Pac10 Conference, these spots tell a first person story of women athletes.  Limited to still images, we pushed the boundaries as far as we could to tell their story.  This was another great partnership with Switzerland and the dynamic duo of Rick and Janet. Agency Writer: Janet…

Hampsten 7-Eleven Tribute

Cycle Exif picked up some of my shots of the new Hampsten track bike.  This bicycle was built in homage to the 7-Eleven machine Andy Hampsten rode to win the 1988 Giro d’Italia.  The first American to do so.  With a serious eye on racing, this bike was made for the “boards” at the new…

SLGFF “Relay”

A fast paced action filled chase is on – a small band of cinephiles and filmmakers come together to snub the conservative establishment.  We rallied the troops and partnered with the big guns of Frank Unlimited to make the trailer celebrating the 15th Annual Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Director/DP: Matthew J. Clark Lead…

Maiden of Death

This trailer for the fictional film, Maiden of Death, was made to promote the then new film, Grindhouse, coming out from Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez.  We were crazy enough to mak a trailer – we had about 2 weeks to do it.  My part was easy: Shoot some cool stuff.  Dan and Thai had…

The Makers “Matter of Degrees”

Full on rock ‘n roll from Seattle glam rockers, The Makers. We shot on Super35 and Super8, oh and some Super16 too. All the same stock, just different formats. They cut together surprisingly well to create a sense of evolution. Director: Matthew J. Clark DP: Doug Hostetter Design and Animation: Bobby Hougham/ The New Blank…

Max

  I’m working on a short film about my friend Max.  He’s one of the best titanium builders in the US and lives right here in Seattle.  He’s worked for the likes of Seven and Merlin.  These days, he welds for Hampsten and Davidson, but builds his style of bikes – fast, efficient race machines,…
