When Mattes was 4 years old he wanted to be a Clown-Wizard-King. Being a Treatment Researcher-Writer-Designer comes pretty close. He enjoys big ideas & deep stories that are visually stimulating, laugh-out-loud funny and emotionally engaging. Mattes is a trained Creative and also has several years production experience at MJZ and SONNY London. He won the Transylvanian Short Film Award for his CALM commercial and his nose appeared in an Oscar winning feature. When he’s not doing treatments he is planning to kidnap Ringan Ledwidge, Dougal Wilson, Matthijs Van Heijningen and Martin Werner to start the first production company on the Moon. His muses include Peter Pan, Peter Dinklage, and Peter Jackson.
