Mat is a creative, writer and editor and makes ‘short things’ for television, cinema and the internets. Many of these ‘short things’ have won awards. He takes it a bit too seriously and talks about ‘thematics’ a lot.
He also writes ‘long things’ and some of those ‘long things’ have bothered the BAFTA Rocliffe new writing forum, troubled the finals of The Sitcom Mission, led to becoming an alumni of the BBC Writers Room and resulted in being listed as a writer on the BBC New Talent Hotlist 2017.
Some ‘long things’ are in development.
Doing ‘long things’ informs making of ‘short things’. Thematics etc.
Mat dislikes rude people, poor bar service and writing biographies in the third person.
