Matthew Hightshoe
Production Designer

Matthew Hightshoe recently graduated from Indiana University where he majored in Fine Arts, concentrating in drawing and painting.

He also studied production design for opera at IU's School of Music, where he was able to propose several set designs for numerous productions.

Mr. Hightshoe discovered a fascination with buildings and architecture at an early age.   Before he graduated from high school, he had participated in the Young American House Project for three consecutive years.  He earned the second-place trophy in each of the contests, which were sponsored by the Construction Trades Foundation.

DarWest is his first major project in cinematic production design.
