Since joining Verité Studios in 2015, Erik has been involved in every stage of production, working his way up from a totally green PA. His early filmmaking efforts introduced him to the challenges of filmmaking, teaching him invaluable lessons which he would not like to learn again. A native Santa Barbararian, Erik works as cameraman, editor, and production coordinator, depending on the day’s requirements. He enjoys solving problems on set, drinking coffee over an early morning timelapse, and talking about movies—especially British films of the 30s and 40s.
A member of the Verité Studios team for many years, Matthew has recently taken on the expanded role of digital marketing coordinator for Verité. His marketing degree from Biola University and skills in web design, social media marketing, and photography are an essential element of putting our best foot forward.
