Matthew Crane

Matthew Crane is from the town of Cheshire, CT. In 2005, Matthew earned a B.S. in Journalism from Southern Connecticut State University. After graduation, rather than pursuing a career as a working journalist, he followed his passion for music by DJing and playing drums for the band Estrogen Highs. After countless sparsely attended gigs and several underwhelming tours across the country, Matthew is now following his lifelong passion for film. He believes that making documentaries will be the perfect way to combine his various interests into a rewarding method of creative expression. Filmmakers who inspire Matthew are David Lynch, Werner Herzog, Paul Verhoeven, John Carpenter, and the Maysles brothers.
