The Filmmakers

Matt Mastrantuono

Matt Mastrantuono

Matt loves two things: making movies and Ultimate Frisbee. After 8 years of filmmaking and playing Ultimate Frisbee, Chasing Sarasota was born. In 2011, Matt started his own company, Blurred Lens Productions. Later that year he quit his job to make a movie about his Ultimate Frisbee team, Portland Rhino. Yes, that sounds just as ridiculous to him. To make matters worse, he decided to direct, produce, edit, fundraise and do just about everything for the movie. The production of Chasing Sarasota has taught him how to eat cheap, sit for outrageous periods of time and value the wonderful people around him. Speaking of which, Matt actually loves three things: his girlfriend, making movies and Ultimate Frisbee.
