Florida native Matt Rosenbaum is a writer/director and visual artist living in Brooklyn, NY.
While studying film at NYU, Matt cut his teeth learning storytelling by working as a reader for Darren Aronofsky's Protozoa Pictures between 2011-2014. There Matt read thousands of pages of work, slowly and laboriously building up his eye for narrative. After graduating in 2015, Matt committed himself to putting his studies to practice and wrote as much as humanly possible for the latter half of the decade. During this time, Matt wrote 5 original spec features, one adapted feature, and was hired to co-write an original feature. On the side, he worked odd jobs, painted, and directed music videos.
Matt's filmmaking style is elegantly macabre while embracing a whimsical sense of humor. His pet themes often include explorations of confused identity, alienation resulting from oppressive systems, and, taking cues from H.P. Lovecraft's concept of cosmicism, terror in the face of the inconceivable.
His script THE DAMNING OF A COUNTRY MERCHANT, a work combining Romanticism with folk horror, is currently in development with Anonymous Content. Matt is represented by Creative Artists Agency.
