Matthew Parent

the gist

Matthew's motion work has led him a few places. He's shot big wall climbing in Africa, chased tiger sharks in the Galapagos, and followed avalanche researchers with National Geographic. His forte is the run-n-gun and down and dirty work where he gets personal with the stories he's seeking. He welcomes being sleep deprived and uncomfortable in far away places, but is equally suited to coordinating lit interviews in a billionaire’s mansion in Santa Monica. He has flown Inspire 2s, story produced, mic’ed up billionaires, and gripped complicated setups. So whether he's spending multiple days filming the northern lights in remote Canada, or shooting B-roll in the sketchy backstreets of a metropolis, he's the right guy for the job.

 

the details

Years ago Matthew graduated from Virginia Tech and bought a camera and some climbing gear, wandering and climbing his way through his early twenties, driving here and there in search of rock. Eventually he found his place, and these days he's at home in the camera department... focusing on documentary storytelling to whatever project he is working on. 

At the heart of his ambition, lies a desire to tell meaningful stories that educate, inspire, and impact as wide an audience as possible. Powerful stories and epic adventure drive his ambitions every single day, and so you'll find him focused, laughing, and happy regardless of the assignment or how bad it gets. Check him out, and bring him along for the next assignment. Afterwards go climb a few pitches, grab a street taco, and talk about where you guys want to go next.
