Matthew A. Troy

Visiting Assistant Arts Professor

Matthew A. Troy

Matthew Troy is a visiting arts professor at the Tisch School of the Arts Undergrad Film & Television program. An alumni of the program in 2009, and an adjunct instructor since 2014, Matthew continues his passion for guiding new filmmakers through the production challenges of camera and lighting while promoting safety on set.

Beyond Tisch, Matthew will be found behind the camera on commercial shoots in NYC and beyond. A commercial cinematographer (along with various feature and short form credits), Matthew is a certified Phantom Technician and has found his place shooting high speed cinema when he can. Among his favorite productions annually is shooting for Animal Planet’s “The Puppy Bowl.” In 2018 Matthew won a regional Emmy award for directing a public service announcement for the Connecticut fire service.

When not on set, you'll find Matthew in Connecticut with his family and where he is a volunteer firefighter and EMT. He's close to getting his pilot's license, loves world travel, and is a huge fan of the Olympics (which explains why he volunteers as Team USA Bobsled's videographer during the winter months).
