Matt Hodgson is a gifted storyteller, but if you were to ask his clients, or the numerous agencies, visual effects and design studios, art directors, illustrators, composers, campaign managers or marketing directors how they would define Matt, they would most certainly say he is "complete." As a TV Director/WriterHodgson has 58 episodes of a multiple Emmy award winning TV series to his credit. As a Commercial Director/WriterHodgson has directed well over 500 hundred national, regional and theatrical TV commercials for some of the biggest brands in the world, including Coca-Cola, Sprite, Overstock.com, XANGO, Lowes (Orchard Supply Hardware), Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and their sponsors—Marriott Hotels, Rite-Aid, Dairy Queen, ReMax, Walmart and Sam's Club, as well as Lagoon Amusement Park, Tuffy Automotive Services Centers and numerous winning political campaigns But besides directing these campaigns the huge difference that Matt Hodgson brings to the table is his over 20 years experience as an award-winning Creative Director/Writer/Idea Guy. In every example on this site Matt Hodgson has been the creative force behind the campaign, the passion behind the words, the directorial vision driving each story—regardless of whether that story is thirty seconds on three hours, So it should come as no surprise that when the ad world turned to "brand storytelling" and "branded content" as the next new way to connect brands with consumers, Hodgson was already there—with an experiential approach to brand storytelling that is unlike anything you've ever seen. He calls it "Brand Cinema," and whether this form of brand storytelling is told as a short film, a live theatrical event, a made for TV series, through the pages of a book, or an interactive game, Brand Cinema engages audiences in an experiential way that is as personal and powerful as it is visceral and compelling.
