Travis Mathews is an award-winning filmmaker whose movies focus on gay men and intimacy. Informed with a Masters in Counseling Psychology and a background in documentary, Travis takes a thoughtful and naturalistic approach to filmmaking while maintaining a sense of humor in his movies.
In 2009 Travis started an ongoing documentary series called In Their Room about gay men and bedrooms. The first of several episodes was filmed in San Francisco, followed by Berlin in 2010 and then London in 2012. During the making of the series Travis began his first feature film, I Want Your Love, inspired by the small real-life narratives he was encountering with the men he was filming. I Want Your Love has played sold out screenings in dozens of festivals worldwide and will be released on VOD/DVD in early 2013.
Following the success of I Want Your Love, Travis was approached by filmmaker James Franco in 2012 to collaborate on what would become Interior. Leather Bar.
