While growing up in his parent’s Taiwanese restaurant, Matthew joined the nearby Kung Fu academy. It is here where he gained an enthusiastic appreciation of Jackie Chan films and began jumping off buildings and bouncing off cars. He would spend his days visualizing action sequences and fight scenes. Upon realizing that he would never have the physical skill to pull off these stunts, it became apparent that behind the camera is where he really wanted to be.
Matthew Chuang works as both a Director and a Cinematographer. His renowned spot for Kubota Grand X was the winner of the ACE Award – Best Cinema Advertising 2013 and also made the AdNews Top 10 Ads of 2013.
The Fractures ‘It’s Alright’ clip, which was shot on location in Chernobyl, Ukraine, has won Matthew the Best Direction In A Music Video at the Australian Directors Guild Awards in 2015. The clip was hand picked and featured as a Vimeo Staff Pick and is also nominated for ‘Best Music Video’ and ‘Best Cinematography’ at the prestigious Camerimage International Film Festival in Poland.
