Matt's trying to produce his first feature film titled "Final Descent", which he wrote. It's a cross between “Downhill Racer” and “The Fault in Our Stars.” The story is about a young man named Aaron, who after his first year on the U.S. Ski Team, must now deal with the difficulties of a complicated family life and his new found love, Jessie, all the while reconciling with the ghost of his father, who pushed him into the sport. After landing on his first World Cup podium, Aaron loses himself in a whirlwind of self-sabotage that pushes everyone away, including Jessie. When he finally gets the opportunity to ski at the World Championships, Aaron abandons his once-in-a-lifetime dream and returns home to be at his brother’s side in his final days. Heartbroken, he seeks to make amends with Jessie. Imbued with a sense of closure, the support of Jessie, fate offers Aaron one last chance to ski the race of a lifetime, when he’s called back to the World Championships.
Matt's looking for someone who loves the sport of skiing, more importantly ski racing, that can help him raise the money. Matt has a solid budget at $1.8M.
