About me

Matt is an award-winning writer & director of commercials, content and short films. Having originally studied graphic design and photography, Matt got his break in the film industry working as an assistant director and production manager on a raft of commercials, music promos and features. This apprenticeship has given him a well-rounded knowledge of the business. After shooting a number of test spots, he made the jump into directing after being commissioned to write and direct a short for BBC Films. This lead to a five year stint at Outsider that saw him shooting films for clients such as Barclays, Vodafone, The Sun, Budweiser, Samsung and Fiat, collaborating with many agencies at home and abroad including BBH, Ogilvy NY, Krow, MullenLowe, Grey, WCRS, Special Group Sydney, Leo Burnett, Gravity Road, The Viral Factory and AMV BBDO. Matt has worked across many disciplines, shooting celebrities, kids, cars, royalty, indigenous tribes and even an elephant or two. An incredibly collaborative director, he loves nothing more than writing for and directing comedic actors. Over a number of shorts and commercials he has proven to have a great eye for casting and drawing out fantastic performances.
