Drexel University, B.S. Film & Video
Matt Hilferty maintains the college’s AV systems, creates new ways to leverage AV-related services, and supports the audio-visual needs of the college and Knowles Conference Center.
Hilferty is a Philadelphia native and graduate of Drexel University’s Film & Video program. He originally focused on a career in writing and directing but shifted gears (and coasts) to embrace the more technical aspects of filmmaking.
In San Francisco, Hilferty served as the equipment facility lead technician for a university’s Motion Picture & Television program. He was tasked with maintaining and servicing production-level camera systems used on a daily basis in the industry, classroom support, as well as coordinating the delivery efforts and transport of equipment for a “city-wide campus.”
The chance to flex his creative muscles to utilize his technical knowledge and build immersive experiences (as the media services coordinator position provides) led Hilferty back east to Georgia State University.
