BIOGRAPHY

Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, Myles Matsuno focuses on developing meaningful stories that carry out strong messages through visual aesthetics. For him, everything he creates comes down to two final factors. The Audience and Moments. The audience can be you, his team, or someone randomly clicking the play button on their browser. As for moments… Good moments are remembered, but, he believes, great moments are unforgettable through the senses.

Matsuno has worked alongside some of the top leading industry leaders and professionals throughout the country by providing commercial and film work to develop and deliver content that competes in today’s fast-paced and changing society. He maintains a motto that his great-grandfather held, which is honesty and kindness are best in business.

He holds true to core values and beliefs that cause his stories and films to inspire others.
