Mr. McLindon found his passion for video production while he was a high school student himself! He took a class in high school very similar to what he teaches now and was instantly hooked! Mr. McLindon took that passion from a high school class, continued his studies at Columbia College Chicago and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Television Producing & Directing. Wasting no time, McLindon started an internship with ABC 7 Chicago and quickly rose through the ranks to become an Associate Producer with Emmy Award Winning show, Windy City Live. Ready for new challenges, McLindon left ABC 7 to launch his own video production company and to also teach the next generation of filmmakers. With the help of some amazing students, McLindon took over the Radio / TV program at Lowell Highschool and led them  to a state award winning program for 6 years. Now, Matt McLindon has landed at Porter County Career Center where, along with some new amazing students, hopes to find and surpass the same success with the newly formed PC3 Media! When he has time to step away from the world of video, McLindon enjoys spending time with his wife and two dogs Ari & Juno and cruising the streets in his Slingshot!
