Matt Black an award winning filmmaker based in St George, UT. I specialize in producing high end story based promotional videos. I started editing videos for production companies in Salt Lake in 2007. By 2009 my wife and I invested in some cinema cameras and made a name for ourselves filming live events all over Northern Utah. Wanting to further my knowledge and skills, in 2011 we moved to St George, UT where I attended film school at Utah Tech University. In 2014 I graduated with a Bachelors of Communication with an emphasis in Digital Motion Picture Production. Also in 2014, I made a documentary about the Boston Marathon entitled “Boston: Still Going Strong” which won best student film at DocUtah International Film Festival. Between 2013 and 2016 I headed the in-house video production division for ENDEVR where I created many promotional, instructional, and testimonial videos for three national brands: MyID, Strengthtape, and PureStrength. Since mid 2016, I have been working full time freelance video production all across the country, while remaining based in St George. I have ran my own full service productions as well as working as a Camera-Op, Director of Photography, Grip, and Consultant. I have worked with many different brands including Tuacahn, InfoWest, NorthWest Mutual, Zion Canyon Music Festival, Compass Health, Abbey Inn, ZionNationalPark.com, and many more.
