Matt Mead

I’m Matt Mead – a freelance filmmaker, cinematographer and editor

I bring creative story-telling, moving image and sound to a range of contexts: from cinema screen to social media, single to multiscreen/site-specific content, using specifically shot footage, archive, motion graphics and other digital media. I work variously as a creative lead on a project, in collaboration with other artists, and/or as part of a team or production crew.

I’ve 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. I make glossy promos and gritty documentary (and gritty promos & glossy docs). I once had a music video street party scene get so wild it was shut down by the military 😉

As a moving image artist, my films have been part of London Short Film Festival, Aesthetica, BFI Flare, Fringe! Queer Film and GAZE International LGBT Film festival in Dublin.

I have my own production company Claw Collective Ltd and frequently freelance on projects in culture and heritage, including for: British Museum, The National Archives, National Maritime Museum, Science Museum, Imperial War Museum, Wellcome Trust, English Heritage, National Museum of Scotland, Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Brú Na Bóinne (Ireland), and the Royal Commission of Al Ula (Saudi Arabia).
