Matt Willis-Jones (b. 1973, London) is a British artist based in Mexico City. He studied art and film at Middlesex University (London) and Columbia College (Chicago) before spending over 15 years working in post-production on major movies and TV series (which basically means sitting in dark rooms and farting through expensive chairs).
After several years of making his own award winning films - which have played at festivals around the world - he has returned to roots as an artist, most recently making portraits of transsexuals in Mexico City, which turns out to be far less stressful than working in the film industry and he encounters almost as many cocks.
He writes films scripts (features, TV pilots and shorts) for other directors, as well as short stories for international magazines and his ongoing anthology of children's stories for grown-ups, 'Things to read before you run out of air' which is being adapted into a podcast.
His hobbies include exclaiming: ‘Oh my God that looks terrible!’ while passing diners at expensive outdoor restaurants, and getting to grips with his new camera...
