Seldom have I worked with a more astute, collaborative and passionate person as Matt. I have worked with him on two far reaching genres and watched his beautiful work for many years.  I will always look for an opportunity to work with him again and again. 

His commitment and dedication are infectious, and his art transforms every piece we have worked on.  I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I didn’t know Matt's work when we were introduced to one another. There’s an old truism that lighting can make or break a design and whilst I don’t necessary hold with that, it’s true that the relationship is vital and should be a meeting of minds and vision. Matt completely got the vision and our minds were very much in harmony. He is a true team player, calm and generous. I wholeheartedly recommend him to you. He is certainly a designer I’m very much looking forward to working with again.

Having worked with Matt many times I can honestly say you won’t find anyone better. As a Director & Choreographer I have worked with many lighting directors, Matt Clutterham is at the top. He creates lighting states that enhances the choreography and totally understands what the director is trying to achieve. He can put his talent to any genre, from a period piece to contemporary all equally magical.

Alan Harding,

Director / Choreographer

Matt has worked for Qdos Entertainment in his capacity as Lighting Designer for more than a decade. His work has included high end cruise line productions, concerts and of course many Qdos Pantomimes. Not only is Matt at the very top of his game as a creative Lighting Designer, he is a thoroughly ‘good egg’ and a joy to work with.

Nick Thomas MBE,

Chairman, QDOS Entertainment

Too many years of Lighting Design Excellence for Qdos to mention, all served with a huge slice of fun, and ever calm professionalism. Matt is a joy on any project, blending his signature style with sensitive understanding for the team’s creative goal. A complete star!
