Toronto, Ontario - March 2019

Cinematographer Matt Bendo has received dual nominations from The Canadian Society of Cinematographers (CSC) for Best Cinematography, Music Video for “Mind Games” and “No Games” both by the artist Sickick.  Matt Bendo did triple duty on the video “Mind Games” as cinematographer, director and editor and was the cinematographer and VFX artist on “No Games.”  “No Games” was directed by Rayn Magic

Bendo is a multi award winning Toronto based filmmaker winning Best Cinematography for two Branded Content spots.   In 2017 he took home the CSC award for “Storm,” YST & Armytrix’ custom Lamborghini exhausts, and in 2018 for the Kombat Arts boxing spot “Legacy.” 

Twenty six year old Bendo is a University of Windsor grad who was awarded the Board of Governor’s Medal.  Of the CSC nominations he says, “It is an incredible feeling to have both music videos nominated this year.  To be recognized by the Canadian Society of Cinematographers three years in a row is truly an honour.”

The Canadian Society of Cinematographers has promoted the art and craft of cinematography since 1957.   The winner of the award will be announced March 23rd at the 62nd CSC Awards Gala to be held at the Arcadian Court in Toronto.
