About Matthew Schilling
Born and raised in North Vancouver BC, Matthew Schilling got interested in film during his high school days helping friends with snowboarding videos.

While getting a bachelors of media arts from Emily Carr University Matt began working for Triton Films Inc. Since 2005 he has worked for the company creating a variety of music videos, commercials and other projects.

Utilizing various styles he tries to give each project a unique spin - whether hip hop, rock or adult contemporary. His videos are generally noted for their integration of dynamic visual FX and mix of location set ups combined with studio shooting.

Over the years he has garnered three Leo (BC Film Industry) awards for best music video. His work has screened on Much Music, MTV, BBC, CBC, CTV and other networks.

He continues to live and work in Vancouver BC, currently involved with music video production and some projects for the upcoming 2010 Olympics.

Michael "A Man Called" Wrycraft
Under the moniker "A Man Called Wrycraft", Michael Wrycraft spends his days designing for music (album design, posters, promo material and all manner of musical ephemera.)  He proudly holds 1 Juno award, 5 Juno nominations, 2 American Independent Music Awards and 5 AIMA nominations all for album or poster design.  With one of his Bruce Cockburn album designs up in New York City's MoMa (Museum of Modern Art), Michael is at the top of his game.  Closing in on 500 CD and countless poster designs including artists such as Gordon Lightfoot, Johnny Cash, Bruce Cockburn and Stompin' Tom, he is just finishing up designs for the first "Greatest Hits" compilation for Stan Rogers AND the final recording of the extraordinary Willie P. Bennett.  He is also secretly hoping for a 6th juno nomination for his special edition boxed-set recently designed for Canada's "Digging Roots."
