Hey guys! I’m Matt and I’m a filmmaker and 3D artist based in sunny Tampa, FL. Up above, you’ll find some work I did last year. I’ll try to keep this reel as updated as I can. Feel free to have a look around, I’ve got a little bit of everything here from cinematography, 3D animation, web design, and coding. I even make Tampa-related shirts!
Life as a filmmaker and 3D artist in Tampa
Being a filmmaker and 3D artist in Tampa is awesome because it’s such a cool place to live and work. I’ve been here for 5 years and absolutely love it.

I graduated from Georgia State University’s Film and Video program.
It didn’t take long before I realized one of the best things I could do to stand out from the filmmaker crowd would be to become a 3D artist. 3D animation is such a vast industry. The art form applies to countless fields from visual effects, video games, and even the medical field. Being hired full time allowed me to put my 3D skills to good use. It gave me the ability to inject amazing life and creative freedom into nearly any project. The trick was finding the best project suited for 3D animation. I’ve been a 3D artist for over 10 years and still love it today.
