Location:

Matt joined the Technicolor Toronto team in 2009 following his graduation from Mohawk College’s Television and Broadcasting program. Since coming on board, he has been immersed in the color process across all three of our Canadian offices—Toronto, Montreal and now, Vancouver.

Matt’s enthusiasm and unwavering dedication to his projects has been apparent from the get go and he has been incredibly successful in supporting commercial, television and feature projects. While he is adaptable to any subject matter or material; projects whose storytelling relies heavily on lighting, composition and a clear vision are the ones that he always finds the most inspiring. Having the opportunity to harmonize the cinematographer’s creative vision with a reality that is relatable to the viewer is a delicate alchemy he loves.

After his solid start in our eastern offices, Matt jumped at the opportunity to head west in the spring of 2016 to support ABC’s critically acclaimed miniseries, When We Rise, as their head dailies colorist. After a taste of the beautiful Pacific North West and a knowledge that the Vancouver community continues to grow even stronger every year, Matthew decided to make Technicolor Vancouver his new home. Since then he has continued to rise to the position of head dailies colorist, running shows such as Warner Bros’ Supernatural and MGM’s anticipated re-make of Overboard.
