Matt has worked in film production for 18 years, writing, directing and producing short films, features, a documentary, corporate films, branded content and live events. His films have screened in over 25 countries, one winning Tropfest Second Prize, another opening the New York Comedy FIlm Festival.
'Sleepwalker' (producer Kristian Moliere) is Matt's debut feature film project. Developed with the financial support of Screen Australia and the South Australian Film Corporation, the thriller screenplay was nominated for an Australian Writers' Guild AWGIE, before opening the season of 'live' script readings, held at the Sydney Theatre in 2011.
Another feature 'Mirror Man' -- also developed with Screen Australia support -- is now available to be optioned. 'Mirror Man' is a high-concept comedy with broad, international appeal.
In addition to film production, Matt is the co-founder of the popular film event Popcorn Taxi. He is the recipient of the AFI Byron Kennedy Award (shared), presented for 'innovation, vision and pursuit of excellence in Australian film.'
Matt was recently invited to join the Australian Writers' Guild PATHWAYS initiative, supporting the careers of a select group of emerging Australian screenwriters.
