Matt Bloom (director)
He has just completed an unprecedented four consecutive new shows as Lead Director. Each were ratings and critical hits, both in the UK and abroad: The BAFTA winning The 4 O'Clock Club, All at Sea, Hank Zipzer starring Henry Winkler, and The Lodge (TV series) for Disney
Awards won include the Royal Television Society Best Drama award for his film On The Out.
He was mentored by Moulin Rouge! and Romeo + Juliet director Baz Luhrmann with whom he made a short film in Manchester starring Brenda Blethyn and Emma Bunton, which was shown before the Royal Premiere of Moulin Rouge!.

He has recently directed commercials and virals for The Cooperative and BBC Comedy, and his latest short horror film, Endless starring Chris Geere and Jenna Harrison, which won the Best Horror/Sci-Fi award at the London Independent Film Festival.
