Matt Pedone  Executive Producer/Partner

As Executive Producer and founding partner of Big Yellow Duck, Matt brings with him a wealth of experience from the advertising and post-production world. He is the son of an ad executive and grew up in the world of advertising. His first visit to a recording studio was as an 8 year old for a Schaefer Beer session with Ashford and Simpson. This left a lasting impression on him and it comes as a surprise to no one that he has opened a studio of his own.

Matt spent two years touring as a drummer after college, at which point he was ready to put his Syracuse degree to use. Wanting to work in the production world Matt took an internship at the family business, Pedone & Partners, so he could network and land some PA gigs. Opportunities came but Matt ended up being such an asset to the agency, they hired him as an assistant producer. He would end up being at Pedone for over 13 years, soon becoming a producer and eventually VP, Director of Broadcast Production.

At Pedone & Partners Matt was prolific, producing TV and radio commercials for such clients as H&M, I-800-Flowers, Genesee Brewing, Corningware and Pyrex to name a few. A career highlight was his work for Sweet N' Low, including the 'Think Pink' animated spot which was featured in Shoot Magazine as 'Top Spot of the Week' in June of 2005. During his stint at Pedone, Matt tapped the creative talents of directors such as Rocky Morton, Alison Maclean, Irv Blitz and David Kellogg. He also worked in collaboration with editors Dave Koza, Avi Oron and Hank Corwin. He also honed his skills as a video editor and mixer in his own right working on in-house projects at the agency.

At this point Matt was ready for change and wanted to go outside the agency world. He landed a job with the new NYC music production company Motive. There he helped Jeremy Adelman, co-founder of Music for Picture, get his new music house off the ground. At Motive, Matt produced for Coca-Cola, Aflac, Blue Man Group, and Subway. By now Matt had the tools and desire to open his own facility and joined forces with composer Stuart Kollmorgen. Matt's experience as a producer from both the client and the facility side have been a great asset in shaping Big Yellow Duck.

Matt currently lives with his wife Katharine and sons Jackson and Wesley in Pelham. He can still be found doing some drumming when time alows.
