Matt Rome


My name is Matt Rome. I'm a cinematographer based in Oakland, California. I grew up in Tacoma, Washington. In 2007, I decided make my way to The Bay Area to become a filmmaker, which, luckily for me, worked out.

I come from a professional background in cooking, lighting, and adventure. I have been wielding some sort of camera since I was a kid. I love travel, people, art, and making stuff. I'm really into process; all the little tiny details that go into creation and how they interact. 

I try to bring fresh eyes to every project I work on. Every story is its own and deserves to be looked at as so. I also like to think of my role as cinematographer as just one small piece of a much larger filmmaking machine. Yet, it is ultimately important as it provides a very specific window into the world of a story. This window gives audiences the ability to see. I love the magic in that.
