Who’s watching the Watcher? Creepy, a little voyeuristic, and kookie with an NSA vibe and that feeling you should be looking over your shoulder, but we pulled back the curtain to reveal what’s really going on. Thanks to the team at WongDoody for taking us on this wild ride to help tell the #BeWatching story….

#BeWatching

Who’s Watching the Watcher? In a slightly creepy paradigm that turns to kookyness, we pull back the curtain on the watcher and reveal him to the audience. We were super thrilled to work with ad agency WongDoody and the great people at the Seattle International Film Festival to celebrate the 2015 festival. StraightEIGHT Films, helmed…

SLGFF 2013

There’s nothing more beautiful than bold, confident people.  We took that idea and turned it into a visual intrepretation of this year’s theme for the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival “Bold Is Beautiful.”  We shot over 50 people in a simple way to let their personality shine through. Director:  Matthew J. Clark DP: Ronnie…

Some Place Close

Just finished this project up about the making of Tony Fulgham’s short film Box Walk.  The music is from Tony’s band Jackrabbit.  I was commissioned by the good folks over at Art Zone to tell the story. Chris White at Comrade Studios did the mix and Jeff Tillotson over at Lightpress finessed the final color.

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…

Helen’s life is coming to an untimely end, thanks to cancer. She and her husband face hard decisions about what to do next.  I was invited to make this film by the Seattle International Film Festival as apart of their 2011 Fly Filmmaking Challenge.  Written in less than a week, with writer Pete Fromm, and…

Stil has taken his ten year-old son, Joey, from his ex-wife’s, crossing the Montana border into Canada. He insists it’s a vacation, but Joey, listening to ransom calls, pushes…

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…

SLGFF 2011 “Mix”

What are the different genres of film you might encounter at a film festival?  It’s a mix, like a box of chocolates… We explored the many of those facets in this trailer for the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Shooting with people frozen, we moved the camera rapidly around the actors capturing a moment…

Piano Pat in Missoula

Can’t believe it has been almost a year!  We were lucky enough to be welcomed at the Big Sky International Documentary Film Festival in Missoula last February.  I talked Pat into joining us.  It was perfect having her there.  She was warmly welcomed by a huge crowd at the screening.  She got the most questions…

This is a still image I snagged before we started shooting the motion content. Check out the making of here on Vimeo. Naked City from Matthew J. Clark…
