About Matt

MATT AARON KRINSKY is a filmmaker, theatre director, producer, writer, acting coach, and teaching artist.

He began his entertainment career as an assistant to acclaimed producer Lawrence Bender at A Band Apart, his production company with Quentin Tarantino. Shortly after that, Matt formed his own independent company – Mogul Productions – to facilitate his desire to produce and direct both for stage and screen.

As a filmmaker, Matt secured financing to produce and direct “An Eye for an Eye” (2004), a short film starring Academy Award Nominee and Golden Globe Winner Sally Kirkland. The film had a successful film festival run and secured an international distribution deal. Additional festival-bound shorts include “Voodoo Love” (2007), “Demonic Attachment” (2016), “Playdate” (2018) – which was acquired by the streaming platform IndieFlix – and his latest short, “Brothers on a Motel Bed”, is in post-production.

For the stage, Matt has directed and produced a number of world premiere plays and readings, additionally serving as dramaturg on several of these productions. He is particularly proud to have directed the Off-Broadway premiere of the one-act play, “With Love” (Theatre at St. Clement’s), and to have worked as a Teaching Artist with the Disney Musicals in Schools program.

Selected stage directing and producing credits include “Ganymede” (Third Citizen Theatre Company, Salem MA), “Brothers on a Hotel Bed” (2Cents Theatre Group, Los Angeles), “Pagan Century: A Workshop Production” (North By South Theatre, Los Angeles), “Hijab” (Boston Playwrights’ Theatre, Boston), “All Saints in the Old Colony: A Staged Reading” (North By South Theatre, Los Angeles), “Our So-Called Loved Ones” (Mogul Productions, Los Angeles), and “Home Free by Lanford Wilson” (VL Productions, Los Angeles). Youth Theatre directing credits include “Disney’s Alice in Wonderland Jr” and “Annie Kids” (Boston Children’s Theatre), “Disney’s The Jungle Book Kids” (Donald McKay School, Boston), “Seussical Jr” and “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” (Next Door Theater, Winchester MA), and assistant director of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (Boston Children’s Theatre).

Matt holds a BA in Psychology from Brandeis University, studied filmmaking at NYU and UCLA, and trained as an actor at the Joanne Baron / D.W. Brown Studio and the Carolyne Barry Acting Academy. He gained tremendous behind-the-scenes insight into the industry during his tenure as a Corporate Communications Coordinator at Disney and is also an alumnus of the Lincoln Center Theater Directors Lab West and serves as the Artistic Director of North By South Theatre Los Angeles.

Matt is actively pitching a new short form docu-series – “Training Tales” – and is slated to make his feature directorial debut in late 2021 on “All Saints”. He is simultaneously attached to two stage shows currently in development – a play, “Pagan Century” and the new musical, “Last Lists”.
