About Me

Matt James Smith

Matt James Smith

I produce videos for cultural, non-profit and educational organisations. I also work regularly on factual projects as a self-shooting producer/director and cameraperson. 

My educational background is in Fine Art, specifically experimental film, video art and photography. I have a practice-led PhD in lens-based media and continue to pursue my own creative projects and research interests in the documentary field.

I live in County Durham with my wife and our two young boys.


DBS certified and fully insured

I hold a clean 2018 DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check certificate, which can be viewed online upon request.

I am insured for Public Liability up to £5,000,000 and for Professional Indemnity up to £1,000,000
