Director of photography / camera operator, Matt Carroll becomes the new Operations Manager at Camera Ambassador.

Matt assists Lead Technician Eric Silver in preparing and maintaining film equipment. He oversees marketing decisions and works closely with Content Director Connor Smith in campaigns such as the Camera Ambassador Community Builders Grant Pitch Party in May. Most importantly, he ensures efficiency with organizational internal workflow and helps all departments of Camera Ambassador to be in constant communication with one another.

Matt had studied Electrical Engineering at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. However, he began feeling that his creative needs weren’t being met. He’d done theater ever since high school and loved telling stories. As a result, Matt transferred to Columbia College Chicago to study Cinematography. Upon graduation in 2019, Matt, with his production studio Volta Photo/Video, DP’d and camera assisted on music videos (Wilco, Iron & Wine), commercials (Coca-Cola, Regal, Cancer Treatment Centers of America; Trustmark), TV shows (Chicago PD, neXt), web shows (Feed Yourself) and a wide variety of independent short and feature films.

“We’re so excited to have Matt on board!” Founder and CEO Erica Duffy exclaims. “Although it’s only been a couple of months, he’s already become such an integral member of our growing team with his unique experience and skill set.”

“I fit in really well with ACs and DPs because I love to communicate with directors and tinker and fix things,” Matt explains, “but I also love talking to clients – I just love problem-solving, both technically and interpersonally.”

“I’m most excited by the fact that Erica is allowing me to build the job out with her as we see which areas I naturally fit in,” Matt comments, “it’s been very nice.”
