I met Matt five years ago at an UKFCUG that Rick Young was presenting in Glasgow, a lovely man. You can’t say enough about someone in one blog article but Matt was one of the decent chaps, lovely manner and always ready to help you.  He was a great cameraman and editor and will be sorely missed by his wife Ruby his son Michael and brother Jon and all his colleagues over the last few years, including his work companion Rick.

As a wee aside Matt told me the Sony PXW-Z100 was so new that Sony would not allow him to shoot any footage with the pre production model which is why most of this is via green screen.

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. Gutted to see this news! Only know of him through the interweb, but his passion for the industry and technical knowledge was always evident. What a loss!
