Matt Mooney studied Engineering at Purdue U. and Graphic Design and Photography at Bradley U. After school, Matt worked as a studio grip, camera op, audio engineer and then Art Director at WEEK, the NBC affiliate in Peoria IL. Next stop Chicago, where Mooney became the first Harry Artist in the Midwest. Harry, designed by Quantel, was the first computer system that provided artists and editors the platform and palette to create digital motion graphics and VFX composites for video. Within a year the phone was ringing off the hook from Hollywood post facilities. Matt was off to the west coast where he became a premier compositor and motion graphics artist. Matt moved up through Harry, Paintbox, Henry and ultimately to the infamous Flame, which has been Hollywood’s Gold Standard for Compositing to this day. Matt’s focus was on national commercials and music videos for artists such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, Pearl Jam, Elton John, U2, the Rolling Stones and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Mooney started Lunacy Post in 2001. Working from his studio in Scottsdale Matt has produced award winning graphics, including 19 Rocky Mountain EMMY awards for clients such as the Phoenix Suns, Cox Communications, Microsoft, Nike, LA Kings, Adrenalin Inc., Phoenix Coyotes, AZ Diamondbacks, 4 Casinos, Lexus, LP&G Inc., Lexus, EMMY Awards, Harlem Globetrotters, Premiere, Spira and Cardio Adventures.
