Film maker shows his love of Teesside.

LANDMARKS across Teesside are being immortalised on film thanks to a newly-established filmmaker.

Matt McGough set up his company Ithica Films with the help of a Digital-City Fellowship and has already attracted considerable praise for his Love Letters To Teesside series of short films. The films use slow motion footage and interesting camera angles to highlight a particular landmark on Teesside.

So far, the Teesside University graduate has completed films on the Temenos sculpture and Infinity Bridge, both of which have been extremely well received on social media.

Matt, who is originally from Middlesbrough and now lives in Stockton, said: "This region has a great history and I'm very proud to come from here.

"I wanted to use the films to help people reengage with the area and to remind them of some of the fantastic landmarks in the region, that perhaps we take for granted.

"It's great that people are able to connect with them and are able to see Teesside in a different light."

Prior to founding Ithica Films, Matt spent a decade working for film companies across the world.
