Matthew Levin


A graduate of Syracuse University and Los Angeles native, Matthew Levin got his start working on HBO's U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, CO, where he directed several multi-camera shoots, including Harry Shearer's "J. Edgar!" featuring John Goodman, Kelsey Grammer, and Christopher Guest.

Shortly after, Levin co-founded Captured Live Productions, where he produced and directed projects for HBO, MGM, Starz!, DirecTV, Yahoo!, TV Land, We TV, TBS, PBS and many others. He produced the AdLib Comedy Series featuring Doug Stanhope and Pablo Francisco, and partnered with Sprint and Power Entertainment to launch the first ever 24-hour mobile comedy network. Levin was brought on to produce X's, critically acclaimed 25th anniversary special, X: Live in Los Angeles and the PBS Documentary Benise: Inside the Fire . Levin produced and directed Pretty, Funny Women for We TV, featuring Chelsea Handler; William Shatner's Has Been Live, featuring Shatner, Ben Folds and Henry Rollins; Particle: Transformations Live, featuring Joe Satriani, Blackalicious and Robby Krieger of The Doors; and interviews with Ann and Nancy Wilson for Heart: Dreamboat Annie Live.

Levin has produced and directed several television specials for international recording artist, Yanni, including PBS's Yanni: Voices, Voices Live in Acapulco and A Living Legacy. Live at El Morro, filmed with 22 cameras at Puerto Rico's historic 16th century fortress, debuted on PBS in Spring 2012. In late 2012, Levin worked with Disney/Hollywood Records recording artist, Nathan Pacheco, on his debut PBS special before re-joining Yanni on his 2013 world tour throughout Europe and Asia.

Later in 2013, Levin joined BiteSize TV, where he co-created Hollywood Today Live for FOX Television and now serves as an Executive Producer on the show. In addition to his work on Hollywood Today Live, Levin has produced several segments for seasons 4 & 5 of Oprah: Where are They Now on the OWN Network, and recently premiered his 5th collaboration with Yanni and PBS, "World Without Borders".

On January 1, 2015, The Oprah Winfrey Network aired an all-day series of civil rights specials, which Levin was particularly proud to have been involved with. He is preparing for his 5th World Tour with Yanni, returning as Video Director for upcoming shows in China & the Middle East throughout Spring 2015.
