Filmmakers » Director

Matthew was born in London and grew up in the south of France before relocating to the United States to study at the University of California at Berkeley.
A couple short films led him to directing music videos for bands like Alan Braxe and M83. He has since been involved in several films and photography projects, co-writing the Larry Clark feature “Wassup Rockers”.
He recently completed “Jalouse”, a half-hour short that he wrote and directed for the ten year anniversary of the magazine Jalouse. Matthew lives in New York and spends most of his time between France and Los Angeles directing commercials, music videos and taking pictures.
As a photographer he has collaborated with several international publications such as Jalouse, L’Officiel, Le Monde, El Pais, Nylon and Teen Vogue.
Matthew Frost has an affinity for whimsy. Whether it's self-publishing a picture book on pet cemeteries or narrating model Ashley Smith in a semi-fashion-satire video promo for Jalouse magazine, Matthew approaches his work with a sense of humor and light-heartedness, a possible side effect of actually enjoying one's work. "Try to stay out of a 9-5. It's important to try to figure it out and be poor, and to struggle, but figure out what you want to do," Matthew tries to explain his ideology. "There's an element of risk to it."
With clients under his belt like Louis Vuitton, Vice, Jalouse and M83, and working with director Larry Clark on Wassup Rockers, Matthew's career in film and photography is no joke. When he isn't jet-setting around the globe (Matthew was born in London, raised French, relocated to LA but now based in New York) on assignments, he's working on a variety of personal projects including Little People In Fur Coats his pet cemetery zine and writing a screenplay.
His latest short for the US brand Viva Vena! stars Lizzy Caplan (Bachelorettes, Party Down) as the ultimate "It" girl. It is one of the viral hits of the first half of 2013.
