About Me

Matt James Smith

Matt James Smith

I produce videos for public sector, non-profit, cultural and educational organisations. I also work regularly on factual projects as a self-shooting producer/director and cameraperson. I’ve worked for international broadcasters and on critically acclaimed feature documentaries.

I have a practice-led PhD in lens-based media - specifically experimental film and video art - and continue to pursue my own creative projects and research interests in the documentary field.

I grew up in County Durham and - having studied in Manchester, Newcastle and Munich - live there now 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
