In 2019, he starred in Unnecessary Posts, weekly web series he created and directed. In October 2019, Valentini directed and starred in the comedy short I Really Need to See a Good Doctor, which collected an award for "Best Comedy Short" at the After Hour Film Festival. Right after this short release, Matteo Valentini starred in the comedy short "#NotAnAd"; and in the awarded action short he wrote "A Movie Without an Ending" (2020) alongside Veronica Osimani.
In January 2020, Valentini directed and performed in the critically acclaimed experimental short he wrote "An Instant Story", and he eventually starred in Reiko Nagayoshi's directorial debut "The Son's of Eli", a dark psychological drama.
