About Matt Curran

I’m an award-winning producer, director, editor, writer, and cinematographer based in Philadelphia, PA.  I’m constantly in search of unique new projects to bring to life, and relish the opportunity to tell compelling stories with some of the area’s best companies, biggest institutions, and brightest creative minds.

Recent clients include: Gatorade, Aetna, NFL Films, Nutrisystem, NBC Sports, The University of Pennsylvania,  Drexel University.

Prior to forming Matt Curran Productions, I was a producer at NBC Sports, writing copy and overseeing production of promos for the network’s original programming and live events – everything from the NFL and the Olympics to the Tour de France and Pro Bull Riding. Before NBC Sports, I  served as the Director of Video Production for Drexel University Athletics, producing, directing, shooting, and editing dozens of features, promos, and live event broadcasts.

I spent six years as a producer at NFL Films, creating a wide range of critically-acclaimed programming, including documentary and reality series for a variety of broadcast, cable, and web outlets, and national commercial spots and marketing videos for clients like Hasbro, Gatorade, and Samsung. I’ve conducted interviews and directed shoots with subjects ranging from famed artist LeRoy Neiman to sports figures like Joe Paterno, Ray Lewis, and Peyton Manning.

My work has been featured on HBO, Showtime, ESPN, ABC, CBS, NBC, NFL Network, NBC Sports Network, and TruTV, and has been recognized by the likes of Sports Illustrated, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone, and Time magazine.
