MATTE is a creative company and entertainment brand based in New York City. Through strategy, content and experiences, we inspire the people who inspire us—the originators, the creative community worldwide and those at the frontlines of culture.
MATTE Projects is a privately owned creative production company located in Tribeca. For this internship, I will be involved in the post-production department. Founded in 2012, the company’s size ranges from 51-200 employees that are well-versed in film and video production, graphic design and event hosting such as music festivals. However, prior to what MATTE is today, two of the three founders began working together with a sole focus on the music industry, producing concerts and music events before taking on producing films/videos for big fashion companies such as Adidas, Reebok, H&M, Dior and Alexander Wang to name a few. Since then, MATTE has been responsible for Rihanna’s 2018 Met-Gala after-party, created a film for Rihanna’s lingerie collection, and a successful branding campaign for Pure Barre.
Two recent news articles about MATTE have praised the music festivals that were thrown this year. By Guest of a Guest, the company was commended for their reputation of hosting successful parties after BLACK, an art and music event held annually in Brooklyn. On the other hand, from Billboard, the La Luna Festival has made news on their efforts on going green. From providing water stations to refill water stations to compositing food waste, MATTE is marrying sustainability with the celebration of music and dance.
