Writer Biography - Matteo Valentini

Matteo Valentini (Vignola, MO, Italy - 16/11/1990) is an Italian screenwriter and director.

After leaving Italy for London, he studied screenwriting and film making for two years, where he also expanded his knowledge of the field by attending many filmmaking workshops at the famous Raindance school in London.

In 2017, Valentini sold his horror feature Acid Pit Stop (2019) to the Silent Studios company in Southend, UK, where the movie was shot under the direction of Jason Wright, and with the participation of Bruce Payne. The same year, Valentini wrote, directed, produced and performed in the multi-awarded comedy web series The Fridge: An Ugly Web Series (2017), available on YouTube in Italian language with English subtitles, and awarded for "Best Web Series of the Month" at the AAB Film Festival. In 2018, Valentini wrote, produced and directed the micro-short drama B-Love (2018), which brought him to win the award for Best Director in the Super Short Category - Fall 2018 at the Alternative Film Festival in Toronto.

Valentini is mainly an action-comedy filmmaker who focuses his stories on a quirky mix of night life, drugs, pulp and crime, in the vein of Crank, Ocean's Eleven or I Can Quit Whenver I Want. Thanks to his style, his two latest action-comedy scripts Tank Dust and We Just Need Some Money resulted finalists in many qualifying IMDB festivals such as The Monthly Film Festival, The Rome Prisma Awards and The Monkey Bread Tree Festival.

He is now looking for a production company interested in his projects We Just Need Some Money and Tank Dust. At the same time, he is writing one comedy and one horror sci-fi feature, all this while busy with the pre-production of his comedy short The Social Doctor (2019).
