Matt DeVino

FILMMAKER
I’m a total film geek. I’ve known I wanted to make movies since I was a little kid. As I got older I started making my own short films, did the film school thing, and eventually made it out to Los Angeles where I began my career in the film industry. I’ve worked on some really great projects, mainly in the Editing bay, but more and more in the Director’s chair. I’ve worked as a Director, Editor, Online Editor, Graphics Artist, DIT, and Visual Effects artist on Feature Films, Documentaries, TV shows, Commercials, and Viral Campaigns for major studios and networks such as Disney, Warner Brothers, MGM, Cartoon Network, NBC, HBO, MTV2, CBS, Fox Sports, and Fuel TV. My career goals include Writing & Directing, as well as Editing feature films, TV shows, and documentaries.

PHOTOGRAPHER
For me, Photography is almost always a passion project. It’s something for me to dump my creativity into when filmmaking feels too much like work. I’ve always loved cameras and what you can make with them. I’ll shoot just about everything, with almost every kind of camera. I still have a deep love for film photography, especially cross processing medium format film. I do shoot digitally most of the time though, which is still fun. If you like my work prints are available, and I’m also available for shoots.

            • Scotty Vine – Full Part 4

              Few snowboarders are as creatively disconnected from reality as Scotty Vine. We believe that it is this disconnect that makes Scotty so talented at taking bizarre concepts and bringing them to fruition. His latest full part is no exception to this school of thought. Packed with outlier technique and unusual tricks, Scotty Vine’s Full Part 4 presents a rare approach to the rat race of filming a video part.

                              When the Arbor Snowboards crew made their Snowboarder Magazine Superpark 17 video, there ended up being a ton of great footage that just didn’t make the cut. After our win in the Battle of the Brands it only made sense to make a “Cutting Room Floor” edit and give our team one last victory lap. Check out all of the clips that got clipped and may have been lost forever if not for the contest outcome with fresh shots

                                      Persevering through hard times shows courage and motivation to achieve goals, produces humility and can result in great accomplishments. The 2011/12 winter was the most difficult test of my life in snowboarding. I worked with many talented people over the course of the season who directly or indirectly affected the outcome of this video part.
