In Memorandum - Matt White - Producer, Ariel Media.
Previously, Ariel Media was a collaboration between Amy Frasca and fellow producer Matt White. In 2015 Matt White was diagnosed with cancer, following a hugely successful period of work producing in LA. Matt returned home to Sydney, to receive treatment but tragically passed away, surrounded by loving friends who will miss him always, but will be forever in our hearts.
In honour of our collaboration and friendship, I wish to leave Matt's filmography on this page, as a celebration of a creative life, well lived.
