About Our Company


Serving all of Toronto and the GTA, Viva Media is a dedicated full-service video production company based out of Downtown Toronto.

What sets us apart?

The foundation of our business is one built on passion. We love what we do, we’re good at it, and it shows. We’re driven by our own need to be creative, to raise the bar with every project, and we have no interest in churning out cookie-cutter videos.

Nothing makes us happier than watching one of our beloved clients gasp, or cry tears of joy, as they watch their video for the first time – and that happens quite often! At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about.

Behind Viva Media is a multi-faceted team of videographers, video editors, copywriters, animators, directors, and project managers. We never stop striving to raise the bar and we enjoy pushing our team to exceed expectations on every project, big or small. From creative development, writing, casting, scheduling, set design, cinematography and editing, all the way through to final delivery of a project, Viva Media is the complete, full-service package.

Our clients know what they’re getting when they hire us and that’s why they trust us with their brands.





Meet The Team

Matthew Watts

Creative Director / DOP

Matthew’s three years of project management experience with non-profits, governments, and private businesses across a broad spectrum of industries, is invaluable to the success of Viva Media’s wide range of clients. Matthew not only understands and anticipates clients’ unique needs, he challenges the notion of what a full-service video production company is.

Matthew understands that without thoughtful integration of a brand’s key messages, the success of a project is sure to fall flat. With years of experience in marketing and public relations, and a sometimes-overzealous passion for research, copywriting and digital marketing, Matthew is the messaging authority at Viva Media. Furthermore he serves as a talented interviewer with a knack for putting people at ease while extracting the very best sound bites.
