Film Credits

Effects for Film - The Matte World Digital philosophy is to produce seamless and realistic visual effects so the audience is not aware they are viewing an effect, but rather an integral part of the director's vision. Our reputation for affordable, high-quality visual effects is unprecedented. To say you haven't seen our work is our best compliment. Please visit our extensive film credits with stills and clips from dozens of feature-length films.

Television Credits
Commercials and Television - Matte World Digital offers the same services for television and commercials that we do for film. We've done commercial work for AT&T, Coca Cola and Honda, as well as the effects in Michael Jackson's Black or White music video. Our television credits page features examples of shots we've done for the past 20 years.
Interactive Formats
Interactive Formats - Matte World Digital brings the same level of artistic accomplishment from its film and television work into the Interactive environment. Working with publishers and developers, MWD enjoys contributing to this area of digital creativity. We can provide your vision in any format you wish, including CD-ROM, Simulator, Projection (high definition and film) or Internet/online. Examples of our work include the gaming titles, The Mega-Datazord, Riven (Myst II), and Wing Commander IV.
