Matti is a forward-thinking director and visual artist working within cg and real-time animation. He lives in London, works globally and is originally from Helsinki.
His interest in new technologies and constant hunger of learning new ways of making things that haven’t existed yet have always shaped his path as an artist. As a director he is interested in finding simple relatable emotions through character driven stories in worlds that combine sci-fi, surrealism and the mundane.
His background is in practical filmmaking, live visuals and motion graphics. He has directed and animated many highly acclaimed commercials and won one ADC’E Gold, three Silver Awards at Vuoden Huiput, Junior of the Year at Vuoden Huiput and a Vimeo Staff Pick.
He has also been heavily involved in Helsinki’s club scene since 2012, by making live visuals and interactive installations at major festivals to underground raves.
He’s an alumni with MA in Directing Animation from the National Film and Television School and the co-founder of Veli Studio.
