Matt Lambert is a young filmmaker and photographer whose gripping, sensual work has found worldwide acclaim. A Los Angeles native living in Berlin, his craft is colored by his formal training in fine arts and animation. “The landscape of how we tell stories has changed,” says Lambert, “and it’s critical to integrate that old school, romantic way of existing into the digital space.” Working across narrative film, experimental documentary, music, video and fashion, Lambert recently took on his first project for a major US network. His recent photobook, Keim, captures moments from gay youth culture – a preoccupation to be revisited in an upcoming homopunk zine project. Lambert has also recently finished his delicate and moving music video, “Paracetamol”, for Declan McKenna which draws on the real life experiences of two 15 year old Londoners, highlighting the themes of friendship, struggle and escape. Tribeca Film Festival named Lambert one of the ten filmmakers of the future, and Dazed put him on their list of top 100 creative influencers of 2015. Selected clients and publications include Gucci, Givenchy, Patrick Wolf, Hercules and Love Affair, Austra, Channel 4, BBC, i-D, Marc Jacobs, Mykki Blanco, Dazed, Fader and Vogue.
