Glen Matthews

Director Glen Matthews has joined the roster at year-old Toronto production studio Undivided. He had most recently been working independently in Canada and prior to that was repped by Clark Stanley. Matthews is not repped in the U.S. A native of Nova Scotia, Matthews spent 10 years as an actor before deciding to pursue a career behind the camera, specializing in short-form video content that encompasses commercials, documentaries, and short films. While bringing a comedic sensibility to Undivided, Matthews is equally adept at both drama and horror. Across his more than 20 projects, he has demonstrated an innate ability to easily break down common issues and incorporate dramatic undertones that make the hero’s tragedy more relatable. In addition to commercial work with brands like Curling Canada, Red Bull, and Ring of Honor, Matthews has earned accolades for his short films including Teething which was selected for Bell Media’s “Shorts to Features” program and was one of the nominees in the Best Short Film category at the Directors Guild of Canada’s 19th annual DGC Awards last year. The film, which follows a disgruntled janitor working to protect an orphaned baby from feral vampires, is currently in the early stages of being turned into a full-length feature. His debut short Room Service, which told the story of a woman confronting her husband’s mistress, was a finalist for CBC’s “Short Film Face-off” in 2012, while his second film, Saving Face, was chosen by Telefilm Canada to play at “Not Short on Talent,” an international showcase held annually in France....
