"Mathew has been an important part of our first Videography Department in the South Africa. Mathews knowledge and experience proved to being very useful input for us, when setting up the department. With his eagerness and willingness to learn, he also grew quit a lot while he was here, and was happy to challenge any task presented varying from file-organizing to traveling to Denmark to join production for three months. As a person Mathew is friendly, smiling, and dedicated, I definitely recommend him.” April 18, 2013

Colleague worked directly with me. Freelance cinematographer and editor.
“I approached Mat to work with me on the "Fifty People One Question" video in Cape Town because his cinematography and editing showreel blew me away. It was a project I has always been interested in filming, but never found the right person to do it with until I saw his reel. The final project is evidence of his consistent creative standard and eye for detail. His filming style is effortless and professional. I look forward to seeing his future work.” February 8, 2013
