Matt Gall has been writing and directing films since getting his hands on a video camera at age eight.
Graduating in 2016, Matt received a Bachelor of Creative Arts from the University of South Queensland. During his study, he wrote and directed numerous short films in addition to a ninety page feature film script, of which he shot the first 25 pages for his third year thesis project.
His first post-study film-making endeavor was a 20 minute short titled ‘Blocked’ that he wrote and directed. ‘Blocked’ followed the journey of a writer, who whilst desperate to find material to write about, helps his date break into her ex’s home in order to retrieve a necklace that was left behind during their breakup. It won a Silver Award at the ‘Global Indie Film Fest’, screened in Italy as part of the ‘Apulia Web Fest Festival’, and received three ‘Official Selection’ titles from other Australian and International Film Festivals.
Following this, during his work for Equip Consulting, he was privileged to work on a documentary titled 'The Project Principle' covering the ugly, burnt out, stressed out side of business owners that they don't want you to see. ‘The Project Principle’ received five ‘Official Selection’ titles from International Festivals and screened in Los Angeles as a part of the ‘KAPOW Intergalactic Film Festival’.
Since January 2019 Matt has been working on a 40 min sci-fi short titled 'Cadence', which was completed in mid-2021, and is currently in Pre-Production for a 10 min short set during the 1500’s French Wars of Religion. Throughout his work Matt is driven by a passion to inspire and entertain, with his personal favourite aspect of films being the deep conversations that arise after viewing a movie that has touched your heart in a unique way.
