Greetings and welcome to Wright Digital Media - glad you're here. My name is Matthew Wright. My expertise in digital media is the culmination of formal training and decades of real world experience in traditional film, video and multimedia design, working in the corporate, advertising, motion picture, and education space; in creative, design, directorial, animation, technology, production management, film and video production and post-production, from West Michigan to Los Angeles, and finally in Chicago where I've made my home.
I have always been fascinated with art and technology. I began my career in the 80's producing and directing corporate video, later in the 90's working in Los Angeles in commercial and feature film production and eventually as a video editor and motion graphics designer in the Midwest. As a natural extension to my bag of tricks, I added web design and development to my wheelhouse over a decade ago.
At the core, Wright Digital Media is a one-man shop. You've noticed I've used the term "We" on the site frequently for the reason that, 1. I'm often working with business owners and company executives, teaming up with highly skilled and talented marketers, researchers, writers, producers, directors and developers and 2., in every project, I engage as a stakeholder and partner to create an ongoing relationship ensuring my clients digital products flexibility, growth and success.
My ethos is simple: contribute your best effort, leverage your experience, nuture relationships, aggressively maintain and update your skill-set, and seek out and learn from feedback.
Sharing my unique set of talents with organizations I support has been rewarding on many levels. I have contributed to many causes over the years including Jeff Lowe's Metanoia and The Jeff Lowe Mountain Foundation, The Avenue of the Righteous, Illinois, Streeterville Neighborhood Advocates, and the Americans with Disabilities Art Exhibition. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for Lemons of Love, Inc., a 501(c) non-profit that creates and distributes beautifully hand sewn chemo-care bags (containing wonderful chemo treatment relief products) to cancer patients going through chemotherapy at hospitals, oncology centers and clinics.
We all search for the things that make us happy and whole, I find mine through curiosity, service, and gratitude.
I am available for hire on short or long term projects providing a complete digital video editing, graphic and web design and development package including the full complement of Adobe Creative Cloud, copious bells and whistles (Red Giant plugins), and a comprehensive 4K cinema video production package and high resolution photography. If you need bright, talented people with mad skill-sets, I can bring them as well. I am very accessible so feel free to get in touch to talk about your next project.
Thank you for visiting Wright Digital Media.
