Hello. I’m Matt Callanan.

I’m a former worldwide DJ and music producer turned filmmaker and doer of Good.

I’m the founder of the good deeds project We Make Good Happen
“Sparking the joy of human kindness”

DJ wise: I played in over 30 countries, to about 1 million people, was DJs of the Month in i-D Magazine, DJed live on Radio 1, was nominated as Top 5 DJs in the world in our genre (breakbeat) and was resident at the infamous Heavenly Jukebox/Social club night at London’s Turnmills (alongside Fatboy Slim and Chemical Brothers)

Filmwise: Have filmed at the top of volcanoes with a Red Bull adventurer, shot a band performing on top of igloo in Lapland, filmed an interview in Richard Branson’s house and was cameraman for a documentary featuring George Clooney. (which led me to start We Make Good Happen)

This year one of my Good deeds went viral: #Tenner4Good

It trended on twitter, BBC did an Amazing Humans short doc about it (which has over 3 Million views), I was interviewed on BBC Breakfast News, appeared in lots of newspapers and radio shows, was on the front page of BBC News for 3 days and became the most watched video on the BBC News website.

“The sheer scale of what Matt’s achieved already is astounding. Yet, it’s such an attainable goal for us all to make somebody else’s day just a little brighter; it’s about being an everyday hero.” – UpriseVSI

Filming documentary with George Clooney (where I also met my hero Bill Murray!) and kickstarted the inspiration for We Make Good Happen.
