04 Apr Matt Coale, Director of Photography
Matt loves beautiful pictures and that’s a good thing since that is what he’s supposed to do as Director of Photography. He lights with warmth and style and makes people look good, look themselves and look relaxed and confident. In fact we know some stars ask for Matt when they’re being interviewed because he makes them look so good. Matt works hard and is a great leader of our production machine. He is an artist but first and foremost he is a sensitive human being. When we encounter situations where “lighting for beauty” isn’t appropriate – like an Intensive Care Unit, Matt’s values are in the right place. He understands that the production is never, ever more important than a sick person trying to be well. Matt is a professional and fun, precise and accepting. We have worked together for almost 20 years and hope we get to work together for another 20 – except I think Matt will retire and go lay in a hammock on the beach.
