About Matt

Cinematographer 

Matt Fore is an award-winning cinematographer who dove into the industry at the cusp of the film vs. digital collision. Having initially trained on film at the prestigious Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA, Matt also had the luck to experiment with some of the first 24p HD cinema camera systems available in the early-to-mid 2000s. This dual-format background still provides Matt with a rich technical knowledge from which to draw upon to create robust storytelling images for every unique project, no matter the budget.

Matt believes story and mood are the top priorities when making visual decisions, not just aesthetics, and as such, he possesses an extremely keen grasp of both the artistic and technical side of digital and celluloid filmmaking and makes it a habit of weaving the two together into every frame he composes.

Known for shooting independent features like the festival darling The Human Race, Matt also loves working on shorter formats, be they short films, promos or webseries. As well as shooting a bevy of commercials and music videos, Matt has also worked as a Camera Operator in the action/stunt units for some of today’s larger Hollywood films, including LimitlessReal SteelLittle Fockers, and Godzilla

In addition to his narrative work, Matt has also shot 2 feature documentaries, (Harvard ParkThe Spirit of the Pony Express) as well as many docu-series, TV spots, and promos for corporate clients such as DirecTV, AT&T, Nvidia, Honest Tea, ESPN and more.
