A creative multimedia network producing groundbreaking work for empowered audiences. Cutting-edge production and distribution techniques aimed at renovating the way we consume media.
Matchbox Media Collective is a creative multimedia network that produces work aiming to create a social impact. We think that media in all its forms can act as a powerful agent of change, and we believe in the increasingly influential role of the public. By giving the public more control and influence over the production process, we are able to reach out to an empowered and global audience. We use crowdfunding and crowdsourcing as production strategies and distribute our work with copyleft licenses.
Our objective is to produce inspiring and informative media by bridging the gap between maker and viewer.
You are invited to join Matchbox Media, WWF, Greenpeace, Pew Environment Group and Ocean 2012 for the premiere of Sandgrains, a documentary about the local effects of global fishing and a focus on longline shark fisheris
