Matt James Smith is a freelance filmmaker and video producer based in North East England. He specialises in making web-based promotional films for charity, cultural, educational and public sector organisations.
Lintelfilm produced a series of short films telling the story of Durham Cathedral ... to promote the Cathedral's new world-class exhibition experience, Open Treasure. Matt was a pleasure to work with throughout the campaign, and worked hard to achieve the best possible results. The five films were creative, engaging and original and were viewed over 50,000 times across the Cathedral's social media channels, generating invaluable publicity for both Open Treasure and Durham Cathedral in LEGO. I would thoroughly recommend Lintelfilm to any organisation looking to create a promotional film.
Lintelfilm captured the non-profit movement Liter of Light, which is a global grassroots movement to bring cheap solar lighting around the poorest areas in the world, through the work of Mick Stephenson. Matt has captured the process of the artist and the spirit of the cause beautifully in his film that balances the difficulty of the structure but also the conviction of the artist to use his skills to make more people aware of the movement.
Lintelfilm made our recent promotional video and we are absolutely delighted with the results. It's already brought in new work for us and we've been inundated with positive feedback and interest in our projects since its release. Matt is extremely capable and professional and was quickly able to understand what we needed from the film. His portrayal of our work and the people we work with is both informative and sensitive to what is quite a complex subject. I would definitely use Lintelfilm again and would recommend them to anyone.
