MY STORY...

143563EMga100201-R10-040-2_edited.jpg

My name is Matthew J Odom or just Matt. First and foremost, I'm a family man. I married my best friend, and we are blessed with a son and daughter.

I'm a digital artist specializing in motion graphics, video editing, and photography since 2005. I began my professional career in a full service, digital production house in Elk Grove Village, IL. I opened Pixel Perfect Pros in 2008 creating videos for small and global business solutions and educational institutions. 

The digital arts has always been in my life. Some of my earliest memories were watching my Dad magically change the color of cars in photoshop 1 while working at the Chicago Tribune. I was lucky enough to dabble in graphic design, film photography, and film development early on in junior high. 

I continued to work with film photography and web design at Libertyville High school and I was intrigued by the digital revolution that was happening. Over the years, my fascination for video, photography and the digital arts has only grown stronger.

 

I attended Northern Illinois University where I began my art career and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Illinois Institute of Art, Schaumburg with a focus on Visual Effects and Motion Graphics.
