Filming on 6 Continents
Matt Ziniel feels most in his element shooting people doing what they love in the beautiful outdoors. He graduated from the Art Program in 2009 with his concentration in Digital Cinema. He moved to Denver after graduating to raise his family and break into the industry. With a continuous commitment to work harder than everyone else, he spent several years shooting everything from weddings, to music festivals, to documentary and commercial projects. Through this hard work and a little serendipity, he carved his niche in the outdoor adventure industry, eventually working his way to where he is now; Field Producer and Lead Cinematographer for Jim Shockey’s Uncharted which airs nationally on the Outdoor Channel.
Matt’s work has allowed him to experience and document cultures in many different countries spanning 6 continents. From shattering his own perceptions of a country, Pakistan, to shooting in -60 degrees in the Arctic, to dealing with extreme heat and exotic insects in the the jungles of Paraguay and Zanzibar, each new adventure brings Matt both greater social awareness and a better understanding of the art of digital cinema.
