Matthew's introduction to film came through 3 DVD rentals every Friday night from his local Blockbuster video store where he was exposed to the joys of cinema from a young age.

He likes to explore small intimacies in his work, often trying to convey a deeper sense of emotional life in an attempt to try and capture the tangible. This year Matthew won VOTD twice for his work for indie band The Moth Club as well as for his graduation film True Strength. His latest film Urban Youth made the Official Straight 8 London Selection, which premiered at the Picturehouse Central.

The Beak Street Bugle recently featured him on their list of unsigned directors, calling him “one to watch”.
