In television, Mattru Media has produced two television series; The Rhyming Chef Barbuda, a unique cooking show that fused hip-hop with culinary arts, filmed in the Caribbean and aired on Bite TV and AUX TV, and two seasons of Cypher, the flag-ship Hip Hop music show for the network aired on AUX TV across Canada.
Mattru also develops creative projects for a variety of corporations and arts organizations - ranging from a multi-year collaboration with Ballet Jorgen to a long standing relationship with High Liner Culinary, which started in 2009 and most recently involved the launch of their re-branding campaign. As with all of Mattru’s projects, we work with our clients from concept development to final product in order to deliver high quality and creative professional videos.
Mattru Media works with a core group of multi-talented artists on a range of projects; from small-scale productions requiring a skeleton crew, to complex and feature-length projects requiring larger teams. Regardless of the scale, our passion and creativity remains the same.
