Charlie graduated from Hope College with a B.A. in Psychology in 2002. Soon after Hope he graduated from Compass Academy in Grand Rapids Michigan, with a certificate in filmmaking and storytelling. In 2003 Matz moved to Southern California to work with mentor Bub Kuns and together they founded The Veracity Project. In late 2005 Matz produced and directed Pub a documentary following Christian musicians into the pubs of Ireland as they attempted to implement pub evangelism (named 2007 Outreach Magazine DVD Resource of the Year Finalist). That same year he produced The Body of Anna Williams a high budget short film directed by Bub Kuns. Together Matz and Kuns have produced over 400 videos for the local church. In late 2003 they decided to broaden their audience and began producing shorts for the film festival circuit and the Church at large. Many of those projects have been nominated for awards. The most recent endeavor was Haircut, a short that Kuns and Matz co-directed for the Global Short Film Network. Matz also teaches a Church Media Director course at Biola University to undergrads interested in working within the Church as a film ministry leader. Charlie currently lives in Buena Park, CA with his wife Kristina and son David.
