Welcome to the portfolio site of Matt Duplessie - Motion Designer and Music Composer

I recently graduated from the Savannah College of Art & Design with a BA in Motion Media Design and a Minor in Sound Design. I love creating beautiful visuals using motion, 3D and setting moods with my musical compositions which take the listener to other worlds, real or imaginary.

Please check out my work in the links above, and read my thoughts, inspirations
and current to-do's below.

Been quite some time since I've had time to update here as my last quarter at SCAD has kept me busy. Alot of fun motion pieces were created during that time as I had 3 studio courses. Hopefully soon I can update my site with a new 3D animation, a music video for Word of Mouth, and a branding package for CBS's The Mentalist.
My plans for after graduation include starting to score my friend Al Signore's full-length feature film Sensory Perception. All the while continuing to create all types of music, help produce my girlfriend Lucia's debut album, and find the balance between my love for music composition and motion media. Needless to say, lot's of great things to come in the future!

For anyone who has had the pleasure of exploring an abandoned building, it is easy to appreciate the beauty in the surrounding decay. I'm certain that whoever runs feels these same sentiments. I try to check for new inspirations from time to time as I find the visuals super inspring. Please check out the beautiful art that can be found when nature and mankind's creations are fused together through neglect, decay, and time.

Finally finished the majority of my print work for my portfolio. I found a neat tin at the crafts store and added a foam base to hold my DVD reel. I had alot of fun experimenting with the different elements of my brand. Shown below; portfolio folder, DVD reel, stickers, resume, cover letter, business card, envelope, and a shipping label. The next step... process book! I think I'm going to design one from my Coca-Cola project.

August 16th, 2010 - Research
Doing further research for my Senior Project, a music video for my band Word of Mouth. The premise involves the nefarious and troublesome Shadow side that hides within us all and what trouble entails when the shadow is loose to do it's bidding!

Putting together my press kit and DVD's to submit to the SCAD Festival and Contest Coordinator so I have some opportunities for my work to be recognized and win some awards!

Just wanted to recognize the silly talents of my friend Dominic Ricciardi.
This is a short movie I had the pleasure of being a part of, which Dominic was the mastermind behind it all. It involves sock puppets, hand-crafted sets, a destructive ogre, firework special effects, a smash montage, and an overall ridiculous but appreciated sense of humour.
Please enjoy "The Daydreams of an Evil Sock".
