The Webmaster


Flash-back in 1978. Matthieu Charter appears for the first time on stage. A few rolls later, over-determined to give himself the opportunities to work in the cinema industry, he studies at ESEC, a french film school. He’s out of it with an Assistant-Director graduate with distinction.

First step : To found LostHeaven Films, with a dozen of friends from ESEC. He explains «it’s a group of artists and technicians who got complementary sensibilities and abilities. » Thanks to this structure, the team starts to work in the advertising and musical business. Matthieu will direct two ads and a musical video for a french rock band.

Since his school’s out, Matthieu is assistant-director on short movies that are seen in many festivals. « I was very lucky to work very early as a first A.D. on a quiet big set. It was on « Un Fils » (A Son) directed by Amal Bedjaoui, her first feature film… » The movie is selected in very famous festivals such as Venise Film Festival, and is shown on french TV channel Arte in June 2004. Two months later, the movie is released in theaters. Besides, « Un Fils » allows Matthieu to reveal another one of his passions, when he compose the soundtrack of the movie.

Furthermore, Matthieu is working in musical DVD business when he participates to the Velvet Magazine adventure, a rock magazine. For the dvds sold with the paper, he makes a lots of interviews and live shootings.

Then he meets a producer who gives him the chance to show what he can do for tv documentaries, Laurent Lesperon and his company « les Films Jack Fébus ». « Laurent asked me to direct my first 52minutes musical documentary », Matthieu explains. Then the company asks Matthieu to make a second one, a documentary which relates a world music festival that took place in September 2004. The both films are broadcasted on music french channel Mezzo in January 2005. The biggest collaboration with Les Films Jack Febus was the shooting of the electro-symphonic concert of star Dj Jeff Mills in June 2005. The dvd of this show was released in April 2006.

Matthieu always follows an Assistant-Director career in feature films industry. He participates in particular at the « Da Vinci Code » shooting in July 2005. He also works on solo projects with the very big desire to direct his first real short movie very soon…« Several scripts are ready to shoot and I really hope to direct one of them before the end of 2006 » Matthieu ends.

See you in a few months then !
