My name is Matthew Wright. I'm a Digital Producer/Director, Creative Director, & Motion Graphics Designer working in the Greater Chicagoland Area and around the country. When I'm not sling'in keyframes, I'm working as a Web Designer/Developer and immersing myself in other forms of digital presentation, storytelling and imaging.
I offer a cultivated, diverse blend of film, video, and digital production knowledge and experience to bring your ideas and products to life in todays digital world. My expertise hails from formal training and decades of real world experience in traditional film, video and multimedia, working in the corporate, advertising, motion picture, and educational space; in creative, design, production management, film and video production and post-production, from West Michigan to Los Angeles, and finally in Chicago where I've made my home.
I've just expanded my service offerings to include 4K video production. I'm excited about getting back into the production side of video. I started out producing & directing corporate video many moons ago. Gear that has become less expensive, smaller, more efficient and yielding higher quality imaging has made it easier for me to get back into production. Soon I'll have a new website up that will bring all marketing communications offerings together on this domain. Internet marketing strategy, branding and graphic design, web design and development, video production and post-production including animation and motion graphics - geared for small to medium sized businesses, startups and non-profits.

4K Video Production Services:
My 4K Cinema Camera Package is built around the Panasonic GH4 with V-log, Sigma 18-35mm and 50-100mm F/1.8 Art Lenses (sharp as a tack with beautiful bokeh) on the Metabones Speedbooster (Super 35mm look, F-mount to fit my 12-22mm, and 18-300mm Nikkor lenses), Fotoga DP500ll Swing-away Matte Box & Follow Focus System on Wooden cage and rails supported by a Sachtler Ace Fluid Head and sticks. I use the Atomos Ninja Flame HDR 4K, 10 bit digital recorder and monitor, along with Zoom and Tascam portable 4 track digital audio recorders, a Rode NTG-2 shotgun mic and boom and a Sennheiser wireless mic system. This package also includes the extraordinary Edelkrone Slider Plus Pro (27.5" slide) with Action Module for motion control, timelapse, stop motion and macro slide, and a Cinevate Duzi 3, 32" light weight, heavy duty slider (excellent for hard to get to locations). Both can be supported by the Benro COM39C 9X carbon fiber tripod or on a Manfrotto 502 head on a high hat . Add the GoPro Hero 4 Black (with car mounts, etc) and the EVO GR-Pro 3 Axis Gimbal (really cool for all kinds of reasons) and this completes an all around compact, high quality video and sound acquisition package. This gear, a 5 point LED light kit (ac or battery powered), various accessories and grip all fit nicely into my van with room for a three person crew.
As always, I can be available for hire on short or long term projects providing a complete digital editing and graphic design package including the full complement of Adobe Creative Cloud and an extensive arsenal of Red Giant plugins. I am equally happy working on your gear or as part of a team and very accessible so feel free to get in touch to talk about your project.
