About me

Recently graduated from SAE Oxford, I have developed a "toolbox" of skills enabling me to get involved in the media industry.

Primarily I wish to be involved in the music department of films, though I can be flexible.

Throughout the past year, I have participated on numerous projects as a boom operator, while I have also provided my services as a runner and sound assistant (on a music video shoot).

My work philosophy enables me to seize each and every opportunity while gaining experience for my self improvement.

Additional Information

I have also received training in how to use Final Cut Pro and in my spare time use it to edit random footage.

I also play Electrical/Classical/Acoustic/Bass guitar, drums if any of those musicians are needed in a project.

Every month I purchase Sound on Sound in order to keep up with the latest technology and learn about various recording techniques, mic placement etc...

Professional Recommendations

    Matias is an extremely professional individual who also brings a huge ammounts of fun to any set. Having worked with him on three occasions (where the third I was the director employing him), I can honestly say I would work with him without a doubt again. He is tireless in his efforts to acheive the best result and works extremely hard once shooting is over to maintain a high level of prefessionalism in his post production work. A model professional!

    Matias was a great person to work with during the shooting of my film. Professional, reliable, he has a bubbly personality that adds a little bit of spice to the crew and a positivity and humor which is contagious. He does complete work which was effective and the outcome was solid results delivered with a smile.

    Matias joined us on a 2-day shoot recently, and was punctual, hard-working and went the extra mile. He was eager to help on all aspects of the shoot, and was very professional on set with other members of crew and with the cast. He is very particular about his trade, and ensured we had all the sound files safe and sound before clocking off for the day. We look forward to working with him again.
