In his second year participating in the 48 Hour Film Project, Matt was voted Best Actor in the Cincinnati competition for his role as Liam in Lessons In Accidental Magic! The film also took home 11 more awards, including Best Film, meaning it will move on to compete at Filmapalooza 2017.
This is also Matt’s second collaboration with director Motke Dapp. This year they travelled to Cincinnati (instead of staying in Nashville), and joined forces with Drive Media House and a crew of around 40 people. Last year the short film, Everyday Yeti won Nashville’s top prize in the 48 Hour Film Festival. It then proceeded to receive strong accolades at Filmapalooza in Atlanta (including a Best Actor nomination for Matt), and was subsequently screened at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
