Don’t dare try to get inside Matt Raimondo’s mind. It’s on a different speed. It’s slower. Connected. Brilliantly hued and forever dreamy. It’s the mind of a storyteller.
You don’t have to understand where that comes from. You just have to trust that at some point after you finish briefing him, Matt will seize upon a concept, splice apart a moment of a lifetime and then rebuild an idea into a beautifully crafted story supported by epic visuals. As if that isn’t enough, Matt is also a thoroughly delightful person to work with and shows great patience and flexibility, particularly when dealing with multiple stakeholders.
