Matthew Irving Epstein (conceived November 24, 1987 on the living room floor of his childhood home) is an American writer and director.
Recently, Epstein wrapped principal photography on his film Cuddle Party, starring Yvette Nicole Brown (Community), Michaela Watkins (Casual, SNL, Trophy Wife), and Rob Huebel (Childrens Hospital). The film was executive produced by Golden Globe and Emmy-winner Jill Soloway (Transparent, Six Feet Under).
Born and raised in New Jersey, Epstein fell in love with the dramatic arts at a young age after seeing a Jurrasic Park / Boogie Nights double feature at the local cinema. Upon moving to Los Angeles in his seventeenth year, he soon graduated from the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. It has been stated that he attended the school to follow in the footsteps of fellow alumni Michael Bay and Zack Snyder; however, that is incorrect.
A feminist ally, Epstein retired from writing for a week in 2012 after seeing the pilot for ABC’s Work It. His writing experience includes developing film and television projects with such high profile production companies as Overbrook Entertainment, Rough House, and Marc Platt Productions. As a writer/director/producer, he has been featured across the web, earned a number of accolades, and has had too much to drink at too many film festivals.
