I am a woman who has felt the love, heartache, passion and anticipation that life has to offer. I write from the heart and I write with honesty. My wish is to share the gift I have with words - that I may make an impression, or assist with a decision. Many times a person may see the right card, but it doesn't have the right words. I want to put the right words... to the right card. Just tell me what you are feeling and why... and I will fine tune them into words.

PROFILE My name is Matt Ellsworth, and I am an Emmy nominated video editor and motion graphics designer with a diverse background of various work environments. I have had the opportunity to work on a wide array of projects anywhere from local TV stations and post production houses to national clients and ad agencies such as: Leo Burnett, Comcast, GolfTV, First Financial Merchant Services, and FPX. Using my skills as a video editor and motion graphic designer, I have created everything from commercials and promotional web videos to music videos and short films. I currently run my own freelance motion graphics and video editing business titled Ellsworth Dynamic, where I work directly with numerous clientele to produce and edit only the best videos, and create the most creative and innovative motion graphic designs -- as well as storyboarding, on-site video production, editing, compression, sound editing, special visual effects, rotoscoping, and compositing. I’ve lead numerous projects and executed clients’ needs on a variety of video and motion graphic design projects, taking extra care to carefully follow the clients’ creative and aesthetic suggestions while also providing my own, thereby creating a true creative, collaborative effort. Using state of the art equipment and several years of experience, I have also provided clients with on-site video production for corporate meetings, testimonials video shoots, and training videos. Early in my career, a colleague and I created a short film and entered it into a natiion-wide film contest. Our film came in first place which resulted in a trip to Hollywood, CA and VIP tickets to the 1998 Golden Globe Awards. Later in my career, in 2002, I created a television spot for Comcast which was then nominated for an Emmy. While I was involved in every step of the process with this spot, it was my motion graphic design efforts which resulted in the Emmy nomination. I am highly proficient with Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, Final Cut, and Cinema 4D. No matter the scale of the project, I am armed with the experience and skills you need to achieve the best creative solutions for your video needs. My resume and demo reel can be found on my website at: http://www.ellsworthdynamic.com I am available for onsite or offsite contract work. Contact me and let’s create something incredible!
