MATT KUTCHER (Special Effects Supervisor) has quickly gone from being one of the most in-demand Special Effects Supervisors in the industry to co-producer and director. His talents have extended far beyond pyrotechnics, crashes, rigging and squib hits. His credits cover the gambit of commercials, music videos, documentaries, episodic television, reality TV, cable (HBO, Disney Channel, Discovery, etc.), independent features and large studio films.
As a special effects coordinator or supervisor, Kutcher’s feature film credits include the upcoming “21,” “The Tribe” and “The Death and Life of Bobby Z,” as well as recent releases “Blades of Glory,” “Home of the Brave,” “The Dead Girl,” “The Marine,” “Crank,” “Into the Blue,” “Monster-in-Law,” “Suspect Zero,” “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!,” “Just Married,” “Joy Ride,” “The Mexican,” and “In Dreams.”
Kutcher rapidly went from being a coordinator for other top effects supervisors, to supervising his own crew (one show at a time), to now supervising multiple effects crews at once, all under his Spectrum Effects banner.
Matt's work on "reality TV" started when he was asked to consult on various shows, including “Rivals” and “The Chamber.” This led him to the entire first season of NBC's "Dog Eat Dog" in 2002, for which he conceived of and designed all the game play, and fabricated each stunt with his Spectrum Effects crew. This show led to additional offers and his involvement with shows such as “Culture Shock,” “The Next Action Hero” and “Winner Take All” (which Matt also co-created and co-executive produced).
