Episode 48: Matt Van Tine - Film Director

Matt Van Tine, Hudson Valley New York native, started his filmmaking career back in 2006 when he set off to film school. Receiving his Bachelor's of Arts in Film from CUNY Hunter College in 2011, he used his filmmaking skills and passion for directing to produce/direct his first feature film, Z-Day. The story follows a man who escapes a mental facility during an infectious outbreak. The film premiered at the James and Betty Hall Theatre, a theater located at the first college he attended, SUNY Dutchess, in Poughkeepsie, New York to a packed house.

Yearning to continue following his passion for filmmaking and growing his skill set, Matt moved across the country to Los Angeles where he will be receiving his Masters of Fine Arts from Loyola Marymount University. During his time in Los Angeles he has been directing, shooting and editing short films. His latest work is the short film "Let Me Go".
