In 2002 he made it to Prague, working as set photographer and AD, but mainly focusing on directing personal projects.

In 2010, parallel to advertising, and the travels belonging to it, Matthieu shot the music video of french celebrity Claire Keim, held a workshop in a contemporary art gallery in Marseille (La GAD), and also participates at the Pecha Kucha night.
But mainly, Matthieu is focusing on developing his feature projects – it takes time, but he is moving determinately forward.
He is participating on a collective feature project “Lumières sur la Méditerranée” – co-directed by 5 directors from the Mediterranean coast (each directing a segment) – Production: Constellation Factory.
