With over 1500 films and TV episodes to his credit, Matt Greenfield has been writing, directing and producing both animated and live-action programming (plus the occasional comic book) since the dawn of time. His work has been distributed internationally by–among others–ADV Films, Anime Network, FUNimation, Happy Carrot, Madman Entertainment, Maiden Japan, Media Blasters, Sentai Filmworks, Section 23, SoftCel Pictures, Switchblade Pictures and Syren. Born in California, he escaped at an early age and spent his formative years wandering the country, absorbing cartoons, science fiction novels and horror movies like a sponge–knowledge he now squeezes out with a modified colander in order to make a living.
Married to the lovely and vivacious Tiffany Grant (who proofed this bio), a VERY brief list of career highlights includes NEON GENESIS EVANGELION, BATTLE ANGEL, GAMERA: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE, the Godzilla classic DESTROY ALL MONSTERS and hundreds of other anime hits like BUBBLEGUM CRISIS: TOKYO 2040, EXCEL SAGA, GANTZ, GODANNAR, GOLDEN BOY, GUNSMITH CATS, MACROSS, NADESICO, NOIR, SPRIGGAN, PRINCESS NINE, TEARS TO TIARA and RAHXEPHON.
And that’s not counting managing distribution of such mega-titles as Gene Roddenberry’s ANDROMEDA & EARTH FINAL CONFLICT, BEASTMASTER, MEGAMAN, MUTANT X, REBOOT, ROBOTECH, SHADOW RAIDERS/WAR PLANETS, SAILOR MOON, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG, STREET FIGHTER 2 (UK) and… we’re running out of space, so here are some of his most recent projects: INFINITE STRATOS 2 and BIG BAD MAMA-SAN. Plus, his company, Kraken Releasing, released three classic GODZILLA movies!
Contrary to rumor, his favorite hobbies are NOT eating babies or torturing voice actors (although the latter does make his top ten).
