Matthew Van Ness, owner of MV Film Productions, LLC has only one thing when it comes to the digital age of wedding and event filmmaking. PASSION. There is no other way of explaining what this visual artist displays for the industry. Van Ness created the business back in the spring of 2007, when still in high school. “I have always loved motion picture media and the idea of capturing moments to replay forever. It’s something that has been a part of me ever since I was a child.” Matt enjoys creating pieces by going out and filming, editing, and producing what unfolds in front of the camera. “To be honest, I don’t like writing and directing films. I’m the type of guy who likes being creative when working in the live environment and having the stress from the idea that anything may happen.” He credits is awesome team for helping him produce what you see today Matthew graduated from the New England Institute of Art located in the Boston area with a Bachelor’s Degree of Science for Digital Video Production and Audio.
