Matt Sylvester is a writer and Executive Producer for Blue Ibis Films—an independent film and television production company located in Sterling, VA that was founded in 2009. Matt has written and directed over 30 films, including ASHCAN COPIES, a feature length suspense about a catatonic, a murderer, and a nymphomaniac; and UNDERGROUND CIVILIZATION, a documentary spotlighting the Washington, DC death metal music scene in the 1990’s. Together with his brother, Matt has also produced three reality show television pilots that he pitched to the highest echelon of Hollywood executives between 2011 and 2015.
Matt grew up on military bases around the globe before moving to Virginia in 1989, where he began playing drums and penning lyrics for MORBIUS, a death metal band that disbanded in 2016. Writing death metal lyrics was his first foray into creative writing; but after discovering that tying the written word to music was very limiting, he soon turned his attention to narrative fiction, where entire worlds could be created with a keyboard.
With influences ranging from metaphysics, occult studies, and antediluvian mythos; to horror movies, Stephen King, and H.P. Lovecraft, Matt’s stories are typically built using dark settings, sinister antagonists, frightening creatures, and unpredictable outcomes.
