Executive Producer – Mathew Knight
Founder of MKM and Park House Studios is Mathew Knight. Mathew has created, produced, directed and edited prime time television programs throughout Australia and has shot and edited over a thousand commercial and corporate videos around the world. He is the creator and Executive Producer of Behind the Runway, Western Confidential and The Road to Miss Universe Australia which broadcast on the Nine Network Australia and is a Co-Executive Producer for Extreme Sisters for Los Angeles based Discovery Network and Bodega Pictures.
Mathew obtained his Bachelors degree in 2007 from Murdoch University with a major in Screen and Sound Production and a second major in Marketing Management. Following university Mathew started his first company, Mathew Knight Media (MKM) after producing and directing a 22-minute documentary on BHP Billiton‘s Resource Evaluation Group. Rob Connor, BHP Billiton’s project supervisor wrote “The final product that Mathew presented far exceeded our expectations”. This production lead to an increase in demand and projects across Australia.
In 2011, Mathew began working on videos for international lifestyle brands including Victoria’s Secret, Armani Exchange, Johnston and Murphy, Smythson and Starwood Hotels to name a few. In 2014, he created Park House Studios to account for the growing production demand across government, commercial, fashion and the property industries.
In 2015, Mathew created, produced, directed and edited his first one-hour television program for the Nine Network called Behind the Runway which followed the lives of eight prominent fashion identities as they prepared for Western Australia’s biggest fashion week. The show was described by The Sunday Times journalist Fleur Bainger as a “breath-holding, hand-wringing drama”. This production became a springboard into long form television production for Park House and was followed by Western Confidential, an observational documentary which documented the West Coast Eagles run into the Australian Football League’s grand final through the eyes of three prominent players and their partners. This production was given a Sunday night prime time premiere on Nine Network and lead to the creation of The Road to Miss Universe Australia with Pink Tank Events, a multi-camera stage production with documented segments on the Miss Universe Australia program which broadcast on the Nine Network around Australia. In 2020 Park House began managing the Australian production services for U.S. hit T.V series Extreme Sisters for Discovery Network and Bodega Pictures. In 2023, Extreme Sisters in now onto its second season and has broadcast eighteen episodes on Discovery across the U.S, U.K, Europe, South America, Asia and Australia. Mathew played an integral role in the creation of Extreme Sisters having signed and developed main talent, Anna and Lucy, working closely with Bodega Pictures and Discovery Network through its Pilot episode, subsequent series and its continued international success.
Mathew is currently based in Perth, Australia and loves travelling, with New York his favourite city. He volunteers as a marketing advisor to the Noongar Institute of Western Australia (NIWA), an all Aboriginal run education organisation for young adults. Mathew is currently studying a Master of International Law, part time, at the University of Western Australia and is working to further expand the services offered at Park House internationally.
Fleur Bainger, Journalist,The Sunday Times:
“The breath-holding, hand-wringing drama captured by Perth filmmaker Mathew Knight’s cameras are far from the typically polished performances witnessed by the catwalk’s front row. And that’s exactly what makes his doco-meets-reality TV show, Behind the Runway, so captivating.”
Emma White, Director General: Government of Western Australia. Department for Child Protection and Family Support:
“Mathew always presents as a professional, personal and highly efficient extension of our team in the delivery of each project and has consistently worked to achieve the brief, on time and within budget. Mathew’s exceptional skills were pivotal to the development, delivery and success of a recent education and training film based around the Departments Signs of Safety practice framework. Mathew worked tirelessly with staff and external talent to create the training resource, which perfectly illustrates the departments work with Aboriginal families in a moving and thought provoking way.”
Robert Connor, BHP Team Leader and Video Project Supervisor:
“The Final Product that Mathew presented far exceeded our expectations. The level of professionalism and the personal effort that had gone into the production was immediately apparent. The task he was given was large, as were the expectations of the audience but he managed to successfully portray the REG, its people and the work they do in a manner that left all in all at the initial screening, lost for words.
Fiona Fischer, District Director. West Kimberley. Department of Communities. Western Australia:
“Of course I couldn’t wait and watched it straight away with tears in my eyes, it is truly beautiful and really highlights the realities of fostercare particularly in the Kimberley whereby carers are supporting a child and their family”
