"One of the best I've had the pleasure of working with. Only when I worked with Hiro Murai have I been taken aback by the amount of detail in a production. He's a big talent in my world."

Mattia was born 35 years ago in Italy. His approach to filmmaking is the result of 10 years working as an arthouse cinema projectionist, an architect, a storyboard artist, a set designer and finally directing both independent and commercial content around the world for brands and labels such as Brainfeeder Films, Coachella Valley Festival, Vans and Ninja Tune.

His shortfilms have been screened at festivals such as Cannes and Raindance.

As a director of projects across Europe, the Middle East and the US, Mattia learned to perform within different cultural contexts and to work with a wide range of budgets, crews and ideas, continuously expanding his vision towards a fluid style influenced by both popular and experimental language.
