Matthew Medlin

  • Discipline:Producer
  • Program Year:Producing Lab 2010


Hailing from rural Northern California, Matthew Medlin moved from San Francisco to New York City in 2002 where he worked his way up the production ranks in the commercial and independent film scene. He has produced a myriad of creative projects, ranging from commercials and music videos to new media campaigns, to feature and short narrative films. In the 2005 Medlin was the cofounder of a Brooklyn based film making collective entitled Radius 5 Films, and produced his first feature in 2006. Working closely with artist Doug Aitken in 2007 and 2008, he helped produce Sleepwalkers, a massive public art piece that was projected onto the exterior of the MoMA in New York City, and Migration which debuted at the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh and showed at Sundance in 2009. After moving to Los Angeles in 2008, Medlin dived directly into independent films first with Obselidia, and more recently Losing Control (currently in post production). Additionally, he had a hand in the film Night Catches Us, also in competition film at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, and has several projects slated to begin production in the coming year.
