"Let's Get Sexy" with Craig Robinson

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A feature film I recently did production sound on, sound designed, sound edited,  and mixed in 5.1 surround sound was screened today! Sharp was a great opportunity for me to work on a long-form narrative...which I love more than almost anything else...except maybe animation.  Director Nick Conedera put together a solid film, and an excellent screening. I am truly proud of my work and that of my friends on this project.  Click the photo to learn more about the film. Thank you!

Welcome to Mattschwartzsound.com! This is a promo video I sound designed for my good friend Jesse Tarnoff over at Glass & Marker. The spot is for a new company that you may have heard of called 'Soylent'. Soylent is a food product (classified as a food, not a supplement, by the FDA) designed for use as a staple meal by all adults. It is the first of its kind in that it is a total meal replacement that you can actually live a healthy life with for as long as you desire. This company is rapidy on the rise, and has created  a one of a kind product in a time where food shortage is becoming a real concern.   Take a look at their website to learn more. Thanks for visiting!

Welcome to Mattschwartzsound.com! This is the FINAL episode of probably the strangest webseries i have yet to sound design. Created by Funny or Die, Boy Search began as a sketch poking fun at the process of boy-band creation by making the judges three 14 year old girls...and one 30 year old comedian named Armen. But what happened next was unexpected; they actually started to make a real boy band. Though it was only recieved so well compared to the other content surrounding it, I would venture to say it stradled a line of comedy in a way that has probably never been done before. Very interesting stuff. You can check out the whole series HERE. I sound designed the whole thing except for one episode.  As always, thank you for visiting!

Welcome to Mattschwartzsound.com! Here is an episode of the lovely (bad pun) webseries that I've been fortunate to sound design for   SoulPankake: The Science of Love! SOL  explores  what makes people fall in love, and essentially how love works. i've  done the sound design and mixing for all episodes thus far, as well as the animated title sequence (which was done by the incomprable Cameron Clark). This is the sixth episode.  If you like it, and have not seen the rest of the series,  check it out HERE, and  please subscribe!  Thank you!

 

On another note, there are a LOT of projects i have been working on the last few months that can not be put up on my website. But, for anyone actually reading this, i can TELL YOU ABOUT IT!! I recently finished work (production sound and sound design) on a pilot called Aztec Blood, written by David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross, Ronin, etc)! It was directed by his lovely and talented daughter Clara Mamet. I also did an action-comedy pilot, on its way to Comedy Central, currently called The Adventures. I did production and post sound on this as well. It was a SUPER fun shoot with the guys from Radio Silence (VHS, Chad Matt & Rob).

 

Finally, I am currently working on a feature film for Tyler Shields. Tyler is a well known photographer in Los Angeles who is now making the move into feature films. The film is called Outlaw, and it should be reaching you sometime this year or early next year. I am doing the sound design and 5.1 mix.

 

With any luck, I will be able to give you some great news on one or all of these projects very soon! Thanks!

 

P.S. : Oh yeah! I also got to do a narration recording session here at my studio for my dear friend Maddy with her Grandfather...LEONARD NIMOY! It was for a forthcoming documentary called Microwarriors. See below. And...Thank you for visiting!
