Matthew Taylor

Director and Writer

Matthew Taylor is an American artist and technologist who works in film, sculpture, and photography.

Taylor was classically training in painting, drawing, art history and theory, but moved into filmmaking in the late 90’s while still in art school. Starting with short concept films, digital installations, music videos and fashion films, Taylor eventually started making documentaries.

As a filmmaker, Taylor has filmed all over the world in 25 countries including Argentina, Guatemala, Poland, Italy, France, Chili, Germany, and Albania. He has conducted interviews with a range of talent including former presidents, leading CEOs, world leaders, groundbreaking artists, best-selling authors, astronauts, and creative thinkers. To date, he has completed more than 150 short films, fashion works, ballet and dance pieces and directed seven feature documentaries and two short films.

In 2015, Taylor wrote and directed Los Abandonados, a Spanish-language feature documentary about the assassination of Alberto Nisman in Argentina. The film aided in the derailment of Kristina Kirchner’s crony government.

In 2020, Taylor released Marcel Duchamp: The Art of The Possible, a feature length documentary on the life and work of Marcel Duchamp, exploring the critical underpinnings of art in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Last year, Taylor directed a short film entitled Invisible Hand which explores the nature of memory and transference of other’s memories, and the physiological toll trauma exerts on one’s ability to recall events.

Taylor possesses a filmmaking skill set that ranges across every aspect of film production from director of photography to editor. He enjoys being “hands on” in all production projects and will pick up the camera himself to get certain shots.

He is currently working on a conceptual art-rock album Arcadia Sky as well as a mock-u-mentary to accompany the album’s release and is in pre-production on a new narrative feature film.
