Let us introduce ourselves. Team Pyro Media are Matthew and Olivia, a gruesome twosome based in County Durham. We’re both passionate about media in all of its forms and the North East. We love nothing more than to explore Durham, Newcastle, Teesside and Northumberland, taking our cameras with us. Of course, if our work takes us further afield, that’s a bonus!

We’re a couple who thrive on seeing other people’s happiness and knowing that we’ve contributed. When we’ve fulfilled a client’s wishes and see the joy they get from our videos, that’s when we glow the most. If you’d like to take a look at what we can do for you, check out our services page or our FAQs for the answers to all your questions.

Matthew – Head of Production

Matthew is the captain of the Pyro Media ship and knows exactly what he’s doing when it comes to media production. Community radio sparked his love of all things media, spilling over into graphics and web design. After studying Broadcast Media Production at Sunderland University, he knew that video and audio were his calling.

He has a vast array of media experience to his name – filming the Team GB ice hockey team in Kazakhstan, providing coverage of the Great North Run and the Sunderland Airshow, and featuring regularly on the BBC and ITV’s news regional programmes.

Aside from media, Matthew fancies himself as a dab hand in the kitchen with his previous hospitality experience and enjoys showing off the many shirts in his collection.


Olivia – Production Assistant

Olivia is Matthew’s right hand woman and has experience across a range of media outputs. She became interested in production during college, thanks to her Media Studies course, then went on to bag an English degree, a Higher Education certificate in TV and Film Production, and a Masters in Multimedia Journalism.

She has worked on projects across a range of mediums, including video, audio, social media and written content. From creating video campaigns for Anthony Nolan blood cancer charity to producing promos for a local animal sanctuary to starting her own blog, Olivia can wear many hats.

When Olivia isn’t writing or faffing with her camera, she’s perfecting her cat flick eyeliner and collecting enamel pins.
