MATTHEW FRIDG

About

I’ve been shooting film and video since I was only 4 feet tall. That was a long time ago. Fortunately, I have grown another foot and ten inches since then.

I went to school for media and communications and found myself on the set of a couple major feature films (my IMDB). I had a great opportunity to work with a large production house in Pittsburgh, PA for 6 years as a director, cinematographer and head of the production department. Our team there won several Telly’s and ADDY awards and worked with little clients and big clients.

I understand the challenges you may be facing as you try and accomplish your mission. I’d love to partner with you to help you reach your communication goals and realize the vision you have for your organization. How can I help?

Services

Directing

I prepare for interviews, create shot lists, cast actors, work with producers and clients as well as make it happen on set to get what we need in the can.

Creative Development

I love to work side-by-side with creative directors, marketing managers and communications directors to make sure your message is communicated creatively and effectively.

Storytelling/Scripting

Need a script? Need to bring structure to your concept? I can help you put legs on your creative ideas and make them ready for camera.

Analytics

Just because the shoot is over, doesn't mean the work is done. I can help you analyze the results of your video and help you optimize it for cross-platform distribution.

Producing

Someone needs to get the ball rolling. As a producer, I can help you at the initial stages of your project to actually assemble the team who will execute your idea.

DP/Camera

Sometimes you just need someone to put the camera on their shoulder and get pretty shots. No problem. I can help create great shots or simply capture an event or interview.

Post-Production

Let me help you cut your story together. Whether someone else shot it or not, I can form and craft it using industry standard editing tools.

Support

The video production process can be daunting. You want someone with experience who is looking out for you all the way through. I pride myself on delivering not just a great video product, but satisfaction for my clients.

 

Let me help you tell your story.
