BLOG: Bringing “GATEWAY” to Life

Thoughts and reflections on writing, directing, producing, and starring in my first short film.

I’m making a movie. I keep reminding myself of that. It’s been years in the making, and I finally managed to get it together. A short movie, but a movie nonetheless. I’m going to bring a piece of art from concept to completion and into the world. No matter what, that’s pretty cool.

Matt Stars Next to Tiffani Thiessen in Hot Country Knights’ “Pick Her Up” Music Video

I’ve never had so much fun on set. At one point I was rocking out (ok, pretending to… I can’t play guitar) back-to-back with Dierks Bentley; I looked up and saw Travis Tritt right in front of me; and I looked into the audience and saw one of my high school celebrity crushes.

Watch Jacob Bryant’s Powerful New “Bring You Back” Video

Bring You Back was shot a while ago; so glad it’s finally out! I tend to stay away from acting in music videos. Frankly, they just aren’t that fun, and tend not to involve a lot of actual acting. But every once I’ll get a breakdown that is just good. This was one of those times.

It was an added bonus that everyone involved was incredible to work with. Jacob Bryant was a great dude, kind enough to entrust us with this material. The director, Dustin Haney, is a super talent. And it was a rare privilege to act alongside the incredibly sweet, talented, beautiful Crystal Day.
