Presentation

Overview

How to make (or not make any) money doing what you love.
Having started in the industry as a designer and art director and vfx creative director for broadcast in commercials over ten years ago, Matt worked between LA, NYC and London as a commercial director and freelance creative.

However, a few years ago, Matt has put almost all his commercial work aside to pursue personal and funded projects under his past established moniker of dieLAMB and with the London-based art crew, Bare Bones, where he acts as head of video. This work includes, short films, music videos, photography, experimental documentaries, mixed-media video art and live visuals.

The focus of his talk will dissect much of his recent personal work through the lens of his more formal background as well as through through the outside influences that creatively fuel his current work. He will also discuss the importance of building a personal brand and cohesive vision in hopes of attracting direct commissions rather than chasing commercial briefs.
