First and foremost, Matt’s reel is a very entertaining few minutes of motion. It is cut with great precision, and each piece in the montage displays Matt’s skills in all realms of our industry. He can design and animate very well and looks to have had creative direction over most of his current work.
Another point of interest about Matt’s reel is the inclusion of sound effects for each of his spots. A nice touch by Hecq, who did all the sound design for Matt’s reel and also did the sound design for “The Doll” as well. This type of sound design is not too often used in reels as they are usually overpowered by the track and it brings another layer of entertainment to the montage.
He recently left the design studio, Jellyfish in London, and seems to have done work for companies all over, like BNS in LA and Vollmilch in Frankfurt. Soon he will be joining the flood of people to the NY scene, and the studios here will be better for it.
