Jumpstart clients and crew alike are fortunate that Matt Downey decided to take a leap of faith by setting aside the glory and glamour of freelance work and joining the team at Jumpstart Video. He is talented, on-task, and no matter the production challenge or deadline he is always in a good mood. In fact, you just can't upset the guy. He is always happy to listen to a story, a lecture, or a last-minute request, which is good because he is surrounded by storytellers and clients who have wild ideas right at the deadline. We haven't taken the time to check with his wife to see if his jovial spirit continues at home, but given the success of his ventures in to weekend wedding videography its likely he's just as easy going at home or on a Saturday wedding shoot as he is at Jumpstart Video.
