Matthew’s advice and support has been critical in securing my place in the Los Angeles market as a writer, producer, and editor, working on some of Fall’s biggest launches, and marketing campaigns including spots for ABC, CBS, Disney, CW, G4, Esquire Network, TruTV, Soap Net, & FX, and campaigns for the features 21 and Over, 2 Guns, and This is the End. After 20 years of experience working with many of the major Australian television networks as a writer, editor and producer I decided to take my career to the next level by heading to Los Angeles. Soon after arriving, I realised getting into the Los Angeles market was a much harder endeavour than I first thought. In Australia I had grown relationships and status over many years, with many of the major television stations, and in Los Angeles I had to start again. Matthew’s help has been amazing! He talked me through keeping a clear mind when approaching prospective clients; managing my time to prioritize and get the money-generating tasks done each week; provided ways of staying motivated to call what seemed to be an endless number of people each day; and gave me invaluable advice when negotiating complex engagement contracts. Matthew is the essential ingredient to any business that has a great functional skill but lacks the sales, marketing and time management strategies to get the world to know it.
