Behind the Lens: A Visual of Filmmaker Matt Lenski

Apr 22, 2014

Matt Lenski is an award-winning, NYC-based filmmaker and director with an impressive and expansive resume. He has directed several music videos for talented acts like Band of Horses, Regina Spektor and Mark Ronson, and created advertising spots for global brands like Sony and The Gap. His work has even traversed into the realm of politics – he took the powers that be to task with his provocative anti-Bush viral campaign, F*ck New York. More recently, Matt’s disarming and piercingly human documentary, Meaning of Robots was critically acclaimed and chosen as an official selection at the 2012 Sundance Festival.

His latest project is a fashion short he directed and co-wrote titled Ivy Holland: By My Selfie, a satirical, hilarious vignette about a depraved, luxury fashion stylist who takes herself a tad too seriously. It stars Alex Butler and features international runway model Ajak Deng. It can be seen in its entirety here.

We recently visited with Mr. Lenski at a Tribeca loft to capture some candid images of the talented auteur.
