Matthew Kaundart was born and raised with his twin brother in Fort Smith, Arkansas, before finally making the move to Los Angeles to pursue a career in filmmaking, earning a degree in Film Production from the University of Southern California along the way. His live-action short film titled “Recovery” was screened at The International Student Film Festival, Tel-Aviv, and his mixed-media, documentary short called “twin(s)” took the Writing and Innovation awards at the No Budget Film Festival in Los Angeles. Most recently, Matthew worked with Collaborative Arts LA to create a mixed media, pseudo-documentary called "Dinosaurus," and he is in postproduction on a web series pilot for MyTeeVee.tv. Matthew is also working on a feature script about being a twin, a version of which was a finalist for Sundance’s 2014 January Screenwriters Lab. In the advertising world, Matthew has worked as a treatment writer for the production company Tool of North America in Santa Monica, and is now participating in 72U through the ad agency 72andSunny.
