Matthew A Brown


Director, Branded Content Creative

FX was a great place to work because it had a unique culture that came from the top. From John Landgraf to Stephanie Gibbons through to my own boss, John DiMinico, there was a real curiosity and drive to explore and understand human nature through storytelling. Obviously the shows on the network reinforce that.

In my role, I was responsible for the creative oversight of all FX Networks Branded Content projects across all media platforms. That included leadership of the creative process and review of all work produced by in-house producers and outside vendors, working with consumer brands like Audi, Sprite, and Heineken as well as studios like Universal, Paramount and 20th Century Fox.

Custom :30 Sprite spot we concepted and created as part of their sponsorship during Season 2 of Atlanta. We worked with Bark Bark in Atlanta for the shoot.

FX On Set was a network offering. We’d come up with a series of topical/thematic videos and provide questions to elicit our desired responses. In this case, we worked with Framework LA and had one of our producers join them in New York for a shoot with the cast and director.

FX Fearless Portraits was a series we created to highlight the work of many of the women involved in the show Trust. The videos can be viewed here. We created the questions and worked with an in-house editor to mold the interviews, b-roll and show footage into pieces highlighting each woman's work.
