Marek Matousek

Director  Actor  Screenwriter 

Marek was born in Prague in the Czech republic. Ever since he was a little boy he wanted to make films (especially after he saw a bootleg copy of The Terminator - he wanted to make all his films like that. That is until he saw Braveheart and he wanted to make all his films like The Terminator AND Braveheart:)).

Marek has acted in numerous film and TV projects both in the United States and in Europe and he is an "actor's director", though he likes to use the camera to help tell the story in new and intriguing ways.

He likes visually contrasting images and he likes the camera to be on a constant move.

Marek asks his actors to discover and explore all the human dimension of the characters they're playing, he likes to push them to find the raw truth and emotion.  He likes to explore the relationships between characters within the story.

To Marek telling the audience a story that will move them, touch them, inspire them, makes them laugh or cry, makes them care for the character is the greatest accomplishment a filmmaker can reach.
