The Smartest Generation.

Back in February, Matthew along with Producer Craig Stevens, lit out into the vast mountain-scape of Western Montana to capture a new campaign for Montana State Fund.  MSF is Montana’s proprietary workers’ compensation fund and is celebrating 100 years of the workmen’s comp act.  Getting this act off the ground was no small feat considering…

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…

Pinhole exploration

I’ve been fascinated with pinhole photography for some time now.  I love shooting stills with a pinhole.  Things unfold in front of the camera in a whole different way when you are shooting exposures that are sometimes minutes or hours long.  To get decent resolution and acuity in pinhole photography, you need a small aperture…

Microsoft “Arcade”

Old school games on the go. They call the past time “casual gaming,” but something that absorbs this much of people’s time must be something bigger than just casual. This project was a collaborative creation between StraightEIGHT Films and thenewBlank’s Bobby Hougham. Creative Director/Designer: Bobby Hougham Live Action Director/DP: Matthew J.
