About Matt

 

Matt Murray   ♦  mattmurraymedia@gmail.com

My name is Matt Murray. Welcome to my website. Here you'll find information about my experience and skills in video production. I'm primarily a video editor, but I have experience assuming a wide variety of roles in video over the years. Besides editing, I've done everything from writing and producing to assuming control room positions during live studio events. 

After receiving my Bachlor of Science in Film and Video from Drexel University, I got my start in the Philadelphia area working for Comcast Spectacor at the Wells Fargo Center. There I had the opportunity to work Philadelphia Flyers and 76ers games, as well as go on shoots with players and executives. I also found work with Campbell's Soup Company and their Chunky Soup Campaign with NFL Spokespersons. 

These days I'm in DC working as a Senior Video Editor for a public relations company on a wide variety of video and motion graphic content for our clients including Peraton, Cisco, APIC, The Island Nation of Fiji, and more.
