Matt Willis-Jones is a filmmaker known for blending the classical and the experimental with his trademark humour. His films explore the duality of trying to finding order in chaos while rebelling against conformity. As an artist he is known for his portraiture.
After a Foundation year in art and design at Middlesex University (London) Matt moved to Chicago to study film at Columbia College. A pioneer in digital art, he had several works in an exhibition of emerging digital artists at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago in 1998, which led to a career in post-production - a vocation that perfectly blended his skills as a filmmaker and digital artist. Returning to London in 2001, he worked for Passion Pictures and Double Negative on TV series and films such as Batman Begins, before moving to Norway to finish the cult animation ‘Free Jimmy’ (un certain regard - Cannes 2006) and the Oscar winning Peter and the Wolf. In 2016 he moved to Mexico City.
