Claw Collective is a creative network led by Matt Mead, scaling from a one-person shooter/director/editor to a team of specialist content creators. Claw tells stories with digital media and film, on the web/social media, cinema screens and in immersive spaces. We can act as a creative director and lead on a project, or supply a specific technical role: DOP/lighting camera person, drone op (PfCO licensed), or editor.

Claw Collective have shot all around the UK and internationally in Asia, Africa and the US: from studio soundstages to Masai villages; gene sequencing laboratories to a tug boat on the Thames. Creative director Matt Mead’s short films – Glade (2013), Chloe and the Helicopter (2014), Squat! (2015) – have screened at London Short Film Festival, Aesthetica (artist’s film category), BFI Flare Industry Selection, Fringe! Queer Film, GAZE International LGBT Film Festival Dublin. Heritage sector credits include: British Museum, Science Museum, Royal Museums Greenwich, National Trust, English Heritage, London Transport Museum, Epic Ireland (Dublin), National Museum of Scotland, Wellcome Trust.

Claw Collective are able to hire-in high end cinema equipment and lighting and have a network of freelancers to call upon. For smaller scale jobs and lower budgets, Claw Collective operates a Blackmagic Pocket 4K camera (with various lighting and sound kit), a Mavic 2 Drone and uses Adobe Creative Cloud (Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, Audition) and Da Vinci Resolve.
