MATT SMOLEN | DIRECTOR/PRODUCER

Having spent the majority of his life watching films, it seemed like the next logical step was to start making some. After founding Balloon Tree Productions in 2006 as a creative outlet, Matt found himself completing a Bachelor of Film and Digital Media (with Honors) while also working with a real estate video production company. 

Since then, Matt and Balloon Tree Productions have gone from strength to strength - working on everything from training videos for some of Australia's largest and most successful companies, to national TVCs and campaigns. There's even been time to work on a variety of passion projects such as the web series Chris & Josh which has gained international acclaim; earning Matt a nomination for Best Direction at the Online Video Awards Australia 2014 - and the show being awarded 'Outstanding Ensemble (Comedy)' at LAWebfest 2013, 'Melbourne's Best' at Melbourne Web Fest 2013 as well as official selections at Vancouver WebFest 2014, Melbourne Web Fest 2014, ATL WebFest 2014 and the Online Video Awards Australia 2014.

 

SCOTT BURGESS | HEAD OF POST-PRODUCTION

After finding his start in community television, breaking and fixing equipment on a live breakfast program, Scott studied at Deakin University quickly discovering that you probably shouldn’t tell people you learn from breaking things.

He is a keen observer of new technologies and proponent of remix culture, which means video editing was probably always where he was going to end up.
