In a town famous for creativity and artistic associations, it’s not surprising to find a multi-talented man like Matt. Matt is the brains behind Matt’s Lab Media Studio, which specialises in telling stories about the way people work and the unique value they bring. We’re liking the sound of that already.
Matt has a ton of experience as well as a BA Hons in Film and Television from Edinburgh College of Art. He also spent years at the performers’ union, Equity, working for them as a Films and Stunts Organiser and a North East Regional Organiser. Today, his small, independent studio offers a wide range of services, from multimedia production, direction and camera work through to editing, projections, and even sound design.
We don’t want to get too technical, but Matt’s Lab uses high-end kit to make gorgeous films fit for broadcasting, or corporate and personal use. His gear includes Ursa Mini Pro-based camera kits, with editing done using Final Cut Pro and DaVinci Resolve. If we’re totally honest that doesn’t mean much to us, but it does mean that Matt is definitely the real deal, using top-notch technology for brilliant results.
And the kind of output Matt makes? Well, it’s everything from corporate, dance or documentary films through to music videos, oral histories and events and PR work. There’s a full list on his website if you want to know more, as well as examples of his work. Don’t forget that Matt offers his equipment for hire too, and he’ll even train you to use it. Hollywood here we come!
