Co-Writer/Co-Director - MATT PERRY
The world of Horror/Sci-Fi has always been a genre of fascination for Matt. Additionally, the quest to "get the shot" made him a filmmaker as a director, writer, and special effects artist over the past fourteen years. In 2005 Matt's film Murderer, which he wrote and directed, was featured at Cannes Film Festival. In addition he has worked in special effects on multiple feature length projects including Red River, Shadows Light, and Zombie Planet.
When Matt is not working in feature film, he spends much of his time illustrating Horror/Sci-Fi novels. To date he has illustrated over fifteen novels and become an award winning artist in the process. His current projects include a venture in association with several renowned Fantasy/Scifi authors, such as Neil Gaiman and Harry Turtledove.
His sense of storytelling through visual composition that taps into our primal fears is what Matt most enjoys bringing to each of his projects in order to make something enchanting, mesmerizing, and particularly frightening.
