The Teacher

Matthew Salley 

My name is Matthew Salley and I am a freelance VFX artist.
I've always learn everything by spending countless hours watching YouTube tutorials. I first started filming videos with an old iPhone 4 and a selfie stick as my tripod and try to add effects to them.

I love looking back and seeing where I started because my passion for creativity started way back then and still hasn’t left.

When I felt confident enough I started reaching out to people who may want VFX work for their videos, a few answered back and to this day I still edit for them. They helped me gain the experience I needed as an artist. And now I edit films for clients with millions of followers and even worked on a few projects for Netflix.

I’m saying all this not to brag but to show you that if you put in the work and build real relationships with people you too can make it far in this industry.
