    Matthew was great to work with and filmed with us for ten days, for a half -hour CNN travel show in Quebec. Prior to our shoots, he was easy to communicate with and very helpful. While on the ground, Matthew had a keen and creative eye and also helped me book a last minute segment for the show, when one segment fell through. I look forward to working with him again!

    Matt was fully engaged before, during and after our 2-day feature shoot in Toronto. He is a skilled photographer and filmmaker and I look forward to working with him again.

    In the African wilderness, there's no such thing as a free lunch. It's a world where predator and prey are equally matched. And a worthwhile meal means going up against gut-gouging horns, venomous fangs, stampeding hooves, and sharp canines. Take a front row seat and witness the bouts of lion vs. Cape buffalo, mongoose vs. mamba snake, leopard vs. baboon, and other wild clashes.

    Deep in the heart of Africa, three male lions are coming into their prime with much to prove. They must forge strong bonds with a new pride and navigate the dangers of this unique wilderness, competing with hippos and crocodiles, to become true pride males and rulers of this land. We get a bird’s-eye view of their survival tactics, including adapting their hunting skills in surprising ways.
