Matt Chapman Reel 2008


Matt Chapman Showreel - A funny movie is a click away

After five years in this biz I can finally say that I have a reel that truly represents all the different aspects of filmmaking I enjoy. Writing, producing, directing, shooting, editing...I love it all. Hence why I do it all! Over the last few years this guerilla style/renaissance filmmaker mentality has been one faced with many hardships. "Why don't you join the union?" is one thing I hear all the time or "you can't do it all...you need to choose one aspect of the business and specialize" to which I reply "but that's not me".
It was Robert Rodriguez's book REBEL WITHOUT A CREW that changed my life, and has helped keep me motivated through the hard times. He made El MARIACHI for under $8,000 by himself and with a bunch of freinds in Mexico. After walking away from Sundance the Audience Choice Award Winner in 1989, people began to see filmmaking in a whole new light. A new movement was born. This movement is most commonly referred to as "GUERILLA STYLE". Despite my professional experience with proper budgets and methods; it is my preferred method of choice. In fact I believe "Guerilla Filmmaking" is going to be one of the key factors for the talented producers of the future. Why? Simple. It's much cheaper to execute with these low budget tactics and can rival that of a Hollywood Production with a little luck.

Anyways, feel free to check out my new reel.

late,
Matt

Thank you sooooo much for the nice comment!

Please spread the word that I am a video producer who wants to produce a web series. I am looking for investors right now and open to all arrangements. In my opinion, this is the most favorable option for success right now.

Best,
Matt
