When we came across Matt’s work, it immediately captured our attention for these reasons and so much more. Matt’s comedic timing and honest subject matter are incredible, as is his ability to direct dialogue, and the intelligence he puts towards his cuts. He assembles great casts and his body of work shows a maturity of a director who has 20 years experience. We feel fortunate to have Matt on board, and look forward to sharing his wit and having a laugh.”
