Matt Hayward takes Sydney-based executive producer role for Film Construction in Australia
Trans-Tasman production company Film Construction has kicked off the new year by announcing Matt Hayward as executive producer for Australia.
Hayward shares Film Construction's passion to evolve the traditional production company model, seeking out new opportunities and challenges. Says Hayward: "Film Construction has built a big reputation in Australia for over 20 Years - having had offices in both Sydney and Melbourne. I like the way they are adapting to the modern challenges that agencies face. Film Construction finds a way to produce all species of film work for their clients, from online content to long form entertainment."
Hayward cut his teeth as a freelance composer, scoring TVC music for various agencies and production companies in Australia, New Zealand and Asia. He then transitioned into audio post-production, setting up his own facility Sound Reservoir in Sydney, before going on to launch bespoke music production company Eclectic Music Machine. More recently, Hayward moved out of audio and took on the role of MD Asia Pacific for Little Black Book, where he focused on increasing brand awareness in the region, along with driving traffic to the site and increasing revenue.
Says Auckland executive producer Patrick McAteer, who was appointed in June last year: "Matt's diverse range of experience makes him the perfect match for our production philosophy. We produce moving image, no matter the format, and Matt is on board with that idea."
