Matthew Roveto was born in Boston, MA and raised on the South Shore. From an early age, he expressed interest in the arts first through music, playing jazz and rock drum set. This soon transferred into a passion for picture; shooting and editing short films of his friends skateboarding.
He decided to continue his education in imagery at The University of North Carolina School of the Arts where he studied cinematography under his close mentors Thomas E. Ackerman ASC, David Elkins SOC, David Parrish SOC, and John Le Blanc. Summer breaks were spent in Los Angeles where he gained several months of industry experience as a camera assistant and grip.
After receiving his BFA in Filmmaking,
he moved to New York City and currently works between there and Los Angeles as a freelance cinematographer. His short films have been screened at festivals such as NOFF, RiverRun Int. Film Festival, LA Indie Film Festival, and Crested Butte Film Festival, and his music videos have been programmed on CMT.
Mr. Roveto strives to use lenses and light to provide the images necessary to compose stories and establish feeling that can be exhibited and understood without spoken word.
