We believe details are the difference between good and great. Our clients choose us because we’re meticulous about every detail throughout each step of our Learn — Create — Deliver process.
Three Pillars Media started the way most businesses do — in a basement. Matt Sherman and Ryan Cole founded the business while attending the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. Their first goal was to grow the business to be able to support one of them full-time. Of course, the business took off and was able to support both founders and eventually begin hiring staff. Today Three Pillars Media is a team of content creators that produce tons of great content for our clients.
Nebraska is our home. It is where we grew up, started our own families, and began our business. In every sense of the phrase, Nebraska is The Good Life.

Senior Video Producer
Greg been interested in visual story telling since he was 10 years old. He had “O” gauge trains as a young boy, and his father, filming him at Christmas time, placed a camera on a railroad car and sent it around the tracks. That perspective from the camera’s point of view fascinated Greg then because it seemed so realistic.
Greg grew up with all the various film and video formats, starting with making movies in Super-8. He has crewed on various productions in Omaha and a couple of feature films. He really likes working in a collaborative environment and thrives on being part of a creative team. Whether that is independent film or commercial production. Greg frequently finds a comfortable place in assisting others to bring their visions to life. He loves cameras and lenses, gaffer tape and black wrap. C-stands, flags, and apple boxes: they are his friends.
Mattie believes every person has a story to tell. From pre-production to final edit, she makes sure every video is telling the client’s story both creatively and accurately. She enjoys collaborating with others on projects as well as being on set to help out where needed.
Mattie is a graduate of the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film. Her previous video production experience includes IANR Media, HuskerVision, Lincoln Saltdogs Baseball, and LNK-TV. In her free time, she enjoys playing tennis, reading, and going on bike rides.
