Our Story

Lee & Matthew met at the University of Creative Arts, (Maidstone, Kent) in 2009 where they studied a 3-year course in, 'Video Arts Production' both gaining a BA Honors Degree at the end of the course. In 2012, Lee worked in a small production company based in London gaining experience in camera-work & editing alongside working with a variety of clients face-to-face such as: Schlumberger, MSN Live & Legal Support Network among many more. Matthew later joined the same company learning the same skills in both camera-work & editing.



In 2014 both Lee & Matthew decided to leave and go into the world of freelancing. Matthew found himself working with a lot of musicians doing live-music & music videos along with a few corporate-clients such as: Advantec, Phyto Fit, Lough Fit & Complete Group. Lee freelanced in the corporate world of film-making working with clients such as: Google, British Gas, Zenith, Sabre & many more big company names.

In July of 2016 Lee & Matt joined forces and created Matchbox Motion Productions Ltd, with a combined vast amount of skills and knowledge within the video-production industry from pre-producion all the way through to post-services; very quickly MMP expanded working with clients such as: Facebook, GE Healthcare, Telenor Satellite & many more.

In 2018 after being 2 years in business, Matchbox Motion was established as a business that could support the income of both Lee and Matt on it’s own, our client list had been extended to include companies such as: Scivism, Jacksons Fencing, Causeway and BuyingTime/Commerce Futures. We also traveled abroad for our first shoots outside of the UK and at the end of 2018, our first office building was built.

In July 2020, battling through the tough times of Covid-19, Lee and Matt celebrated their fourth birthday of Matchbox Motion and entered their 5th year of business. Picking up many clients down the years such as Vitale Digital, Wellbeing People, WealthBuilders, MTW, Tailored Media and Hand Media, Matchbox Motion have established themselves are a ‘go to’ video production company in the Kent area. We are constantly growing, and evolving new skills and equipment lists and we are looking forward to what the future brings
