He holds a BFA in film from the University of Colorado, Boulder, but then,
no one really cares what a cinematographer's diploma says. Matt Uhry's work
speaks for itself. He's directed dozens of shorts, music videos and commercials,
and ten feature-length movies. He owns his own equipment, and knows his way around
formats from HTDV to anamorphic 35mm.
Matt was the one who insisted that Ashes To Ashes needed be shot on 35mm film,
rather than 16mm as originally planned. You'd never know from watching the widescreen,
Dolby-Surround print of our film that without our D.P.'s involvement, the
final product would've looked a lot like a student film.
Matt's own portfolio site can be found at
and among other things, it includes QuickTIme clips from Ashes you won't see in the preview.
