Unsigned: Matthew Barton

Having arty friends can be helpful if you’re a fledgling director.

After ten years learning how to speak Geordie up in Newcastle Matthew Barton defaulted back to his city of birth, London, to study Graphic Design at Camberwell College of Arts and re-familiarize himself with the Queen’s English.

Experimental projects ensued and after finding himself out on a limb on the mean streets of south London he began to shoot docs and music videos for his eclectic art school friends.

Recent projects have included a music video for an old school friend Nadine Shah, tour diaries for Friendly Fires and a promo for Welsh three-piece outfit La Corvette involving placing a 65-year-old very much in harm’s way at the mercy of the raging seas.

Equally comfortable producing human interest docs, he’s currently shooting a feature about London during the winter months and about to complete a music video for electronic artist Duct involving a lovely group of South London bell ringers.

  • I experimented with vineiwg your website in my ipod touch and the page layout doesnt seem to be right. Might want to check it out on WAP as well as it seems most cellphone layouts are not really working with your web page.

  • it is “nonprofit” doesn’t guarantee that its secrevis are free or affordable, or that its secrevis are legitimate. In fact, some credit cosleuning organizations charge high fees, some of which may be hidden, or urge consumers to make “voluntary” contributions that cause them to fall deeper into debt.Most credit counselors offer secrevis through local offices, the Internet, or on the telephone. If possible, find an organization that offers in-person cosleuning. Many universities, military bases, credit unions, housing authorities, and branches of the U.S. Cooperative Extension Service operate nonprofit credit cosleuning programs. Your financial institution, local consumer protection agency, and friends and family also may be good sources of information and referrals.

  • I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I eunoncter a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.
