I would like to present a very interesting interview on Cameraman.com. His name is Matt Kleiner, a filmmaker and cinematographer based in California and having an affinity for all things ocean. Matt’s imagery is strongly focused around the concept of water and the natural beauty surrounding coastal areas. With surfing being a huge influence in his life, he has used the act of wave riding as a primary source for his focus and creativity.
With three feature length films, several music videos and magazine covers to his credit, Matt’s imagery can be seen around the world. His films have been an official selection at numerous film festivals including the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, International Surf Film Festival Anglet, Ombak Bali, Newport Beach Film Festival and many others.
Watch Matt’s Showreel of the first part of 2011 and then discover this short interview where he tell us how he started his career. The reel show some of his favourite shots from recent music videos, surf films, travel documentaries, commercials and short films. Filmed throughout North America, Australia and Indonesia.
