Matt Silverman

Let’s make something that matters.

Hi, I’m Matt, and I’ve been making shows, podcasts, and viral media that audiences love — and love to share — for more than a decade.

I work with Fortune 500 brands, film & TV stars, top digital publishers, and startup companies who share the same goal: They need to reach people where they live online.

But not all video is created equal. My work is deeply informed by audience consumption habits and platform culture.

You need great video, but you also need a strategy. Contact me to identify how your goals, brand identity, and audience intentions intersect.


Shows & Podcasts

Developing shows for loyal audiences is my passion.

Webseries and podcasts that keep fans deeply engaged across platforms are among the most durable business models on the web. They don’t have to be expensive, but they do need a strong identity, a plan to scale, and clear goals.

Sometimes, serving the right audience is more important than chasing a huge one. I can differentiate your big idea and identify the right talent (on and off camera) to hook passionate subscribers.


The Big Splash

One big idea can get the Internet talking.

I know how to mix concepts and talent to make videos that are irresistible to social audiences and the media. Production strategy is key to ensuring a great idea becomes tomorrow’s water cooler moment.

From viral celebrity mash-ups to passion-fueled fan films to influencer collaborations and break-out music videos, the right splash at the right moment can kickstart a passionate audience.

Brand Campaigns

The type of video ad you need depends on your goals and audience behavior.

I build campaigns from the ground-up with a focus on the right platforms and context to maximize your investment.

Every step is collaborative, and no one touches a camera until your messaging and my strategy are perfectly aligned.

Speaking Engagements

I’d love to translate my experience into a customized presentation for your next event. I speak with pros in the media, communications, education, and legal fields about media trends and the best way to build loyal audiences on the modern Internet.

I keep presentations fun and informative on topics like essential content, audience intent, influencer culture, and platform strategy.

Contact me to discuss your next event or conference.
