WRITING & DIRECTING
I've written over a dozen short films and gone onto direct, produce, edit and star in four of them: 'Charlie Has A Face' (2003), 'Pleroma' (2012), 'Holding The Sun' (2013) & 'June' (2016). I apply my Dancing Mind process to all areas of film making. Holding The Sun premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival in the short film corner and was nominated at the 2013 New Zealand Film Awards for Best Short Film and Best Production Design. I've also completed three feature film screenplays.

Coupled with chance meetings with old and new friends, guides, omens, and visions, Matthew journeys deep into Self and enters the cave he fears most in order to find the treasure he so dearly seeks.
