Matt Rosenbaum is a writer/director and visual artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. He graduated from New York University in 2015 where he studied screenwriting and directing.
His film work focuses on characters attempts at interfacing with circumstances that are beyond their capacity for understanding. Taking cues from H.P. Lovecraft's concept of cosmicism, Matt’s stories are about the frustration this elicits upon characters’ inevitable failure and about the place where wonderment and mystery turn to terror in the face of the unknown. His work is fundamentally dramatic but often intertwined with the genre realms of horror and science fiction. Comedy is an important aspect of his stories.
His drawings/paintings are the same as his movies, just in scribble form.
Matt is currently pursuing the development of his feature horror screenplay I Hope You Live Forever, amongst other works. His most recent short film, The Passions of an Ordinary Mallard (2019), will begin its film festival circuit in 2020.
