Matt Reynolds is a student of Art and Visual Culture at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine. His experiences with film production began with documentary projects in high school. Since then, his trajectory of interests in filmmaking has taken him to The Maine Media Workshops in Rockport to practice stop-motion animation, and The FAMU School for Film and Television in Prague to study 16mm production. Reynolds credits David Lynch and Czech animator Jan Svankmajer as the two most influential filmmakers to his own projects. He spends much of his leisure time doodling or at a computer browsing music videos.
