I'm Matt Clarke, back behind the camera after working for the Union Equity over a 15 year period. I had various roles there including Films and Stunts Organiser and North East Regional Organiser.
I earned my filmmaking stripes doing continuity on Scotland's only post-punk road Movie 'Brotherly Love' which I followed with a BA Hons in Film and Television from Edinburgh College of Art. There was a couple of years of animation included in the mix. I've made work on 16mm, 8mm, Super-VHS, Hi-8, DV, DSLR and Super 35.
I work as a VJ too and most recently made projections for a Giorgio de Carolis dance installation.
I use Final Cut Pro, DaVinci Resolve and Adobe CC in an iMac Pro based edit suite. I make beautiful broadcast quality work using a Netflix approved Ursa Mini Pro camera kit.
In another life I'm a composer, producer and sound designer.
I studied Max/Msp at City Lit, Goldsmiths and Musiques Recherches in Belgium. With Max/Msp, the only limit is your imagination. It's great for visuals, audio and building installations.
I rent out camera, lighting and sound kits at affordable rates, including training.
'Collaborating with Matt was effortless and enjoyable. He shot and edited three videos to be projected as part of my performance work SAISERIT. Matt has been very professional, clear, open and receptive throughout our artistic collaboration, skilfully embracing the vision of the project whilst contributing to it with his technical abilities and strong eye for details. I couldn't have done it without him.' Giorgio de Carolis.
'The festival video produced by Matt is absolutely brilliant, we are thrilled with the result and are very proud to share it. Working with Matt has been really easy as he is friendly and meticulous. We look forward to working together again in the future. Thank-you'. Lisa Graham, Hebden Bridge Arts Festival (09.08.19)
