Matt Aaron Krinsky
Director / Producer
Matt is a director, producer, and writer. ALL SAINTS DAY marks his feature film directorial debut.
Born on the North Shore of Boson and now longtime Los Angeles resident, Matt has seamlessly shifted between stage and screen projects for more than two decades since founding his own independent production company – Mogul Productions.
As a filmmaker, Matt secured financing to produce and direct An Eye for an Eye (2004), a short film starring Academy Award® Nominee and Golden Globe® Winner Sally Kirkland. The movie had a successful film festival run and secured an international distribution deal. Additional festival-bound short films include Voodoo Love (2007), Demonic Attachment (2016), Playdate (2018) – which was acquired by the streaming platform IndieFlix – and Brothers on a Motel Bed (2022).
For the stage, he has directed and produced a number of world premiere plays and readings, including the Off-Broadway premiere of the one-act play, With Love (2014, Theatre at St. Clement's). He is particularly proud to have worked as a Teaching Artist with the Disney Musicals in Schools program and to be an alumnus of the Lincoln Center Theater Directors Lab West.
After graduating from Brandeis University with a BA in Psychology, Matt began his entertainment career as an assistant to acclaimed producer Lawrence Bender at A Band Apart, the production company he shared with Quentin Tarantino. He then went on to train as an actor at the Joanne Baron / D.W. Brown Studio and the Carolyne Barry Acting Academy to further his abilities as a director. Later, he gained tremendous behind-the-scenes insight into the inner workings of the entertainment industry during his tenure as a Corporate Communications Coordinator at The Walt Disney Company.
In 2022, Matt formed Essex Street Productions to produce his feature film directorial debut, All Saints Day, and through Mogul Productions, he is excited to be developing a slate of other film, television, animation, and stage projects.
Aside from telling stories and creating entertainment, Matt loves running; graphic design; drinking too much iced coffee; watching sitcoms, classic movie comedies, and cartoons; playing word games; and hanging out with his niece and three nephews.
