director & producer

For the last twenty five years Matthew Wortman has been working as a TV director for many of the top international broadcasters. He specialises in writing and directing ‘true story’ dramas, notably period films and factual drama, bringing original perspective to momentous historical events. 

Matthew’s directing style is unique and powerful – infusing drama with a heightened-realism not often found in period re-construction. By using a loose improvisational style, his work often brings a spontaneous, even dangerous feel to make characters come alive on the screen.
