Matthew Hundley’s earliest video production effort was while in high school. The school had a “portable” (the thing weighed about 40 pounds and had a shoulder strap) VHS recorder and camera on which he shot and in-camera edited an interview with a local priest on the subject of exorcisms. He and friends also created two music videos for his bands HKS and Static Farm.

A few years later he borrowed gear to create a short film about the rural Wisconsin community where his grandfather grew up. He was also tapped to film a live event with the band House of Large Sizes.

These experiences drove Hundley to step into the Broadcast Production & Management degree at the University of Colorado Boulder. While at the school he worked on several film and video projects:

  • University of Colorado Student Newscasts (director, switcher)
  • Conference on World Affairs Lecture Series (director)
  • CU Women’s Basketball Telecasts (director)
  • Pilot for the Steve Harrington Show (director) [CU Men’s Basketball Coach]Hundley bought his own gear and began working with local bands like The Jonez, Fluid, Again, Baldo Rex and many others–capturing live performances and producing music videos to air on Teletunes (a Denver music video program).

    Out of college he worked at TV stations: KGAN (CBS, Guy Gannet), WDTN (ABC, Hearst), KWWL (NBC, Raycom Media); and handled video producing duties at agencies: ME&V, JAM Multimedia.

    Highlights included:

  • “Hour Family” TV program [1994] (photographer, editor, 3D animation artist) [A variety program focused on families wit hosts Bob and Joni Hilton. Bob used to host The Price is Right.]
  • “Brain Attack” [1999] (producer, writer, director) This was a stroke education program for Iowa Health Services which aired on NBC affiliates state wide .
  • “The Wartburg” [2003] (producer, writer, director) Documented the history and served as a promotional piece for a long standing New York retirement community.
  • “The Entertainment Authority” [Pilot, 2005] (producer, writer) This was a half hour local entertainment program we were pitching to the local NBC affiliate. The program featured host Gary Kroeger (former SNL talent) and artists Paco Rosic and Gary Kelley, plus other local guests. The program did not get picked up but eventually found its way onto cable.
