Mat is an Oscar-winning film director, (I know…he was as surprised as you are!), having won the 2015 Academy Award for Best Short Film for ‘THE PHONE CALL’, starring Sally Hawkins and Jim Broadbent.
Mat joined RSA in 2004, and was immediately forced to wear lycra cycling shorts by Ridley Scott’s sons, which no doubt led to him directing spots for Nike, Playstation and the French (banned in the UK) deep-fried dog biscuit Frolic. His music video cannon includes award-winning clips for Adele, Basement Jaxx, Jamiroquai and Muse. His music videos have received over 100 million hits on YouTube.
He also set the Guinness World Record for ‘Most Consecutive Bikini Waxes’ for his Fatboy Slim music video ‘Bushes’. Mat is also an in-demand screenwriter both in the UK and in Hollywood.
