Matt Westrup has been generating content for the media and entertainment industry for over 15 years. His clients have included Mars Confectionery, Smirnoff, Seat Cars, Barclays, Volkswagen, Kia, Nestle, Proctor and Gamble and Unilever.

As a film maker, Matt is able to draw on a number of creative disciplines that he has honed during his career to date.

Demonstrating an aptitude for art from a young age, Matt left high school and enrolled in art college and after graduating, began his professional career as a freelance commercial illustrator, specialising in uniquely realised character design. As 3D software became more affordable to individual artists, Matt took advantage of the digital technology to break into the visual effects industry, which was an area of film making that had always captivated him. Although highly competent and successful as a 3D generalist, he naturally gravitated to specialising in creature and character creation.

Now recognising the creative outlet that directing could offer him, Matt wrote and directed (as well as generating all of the visual effects for) ‘The Gate‘. The award winning short film made it onto the Viewfinder list, gaining immediate interest from Hollywood studio executives and producers and establishing Matt’s position as a cogent film maker.

Combining realistic, fantasy elements and live action has now become something of a trademark of Matt’s work and he thrives on the exciting combination of storytelling and creative diversity that the directing process presents.

His extensive artistic skill set and visual effects background provide valuable, extra strings to his directing bow and also enables him to fluently converse with the post teams throughout production.
