XYZ’s core is storytelling followed closely by original character design, so you can imagine how deeply pleased we are to have the very talented Mat Landour (formerly FX&Mat) join the roster in 2012. His commercial work includes standout spots for Coca Cola Superbowl, Royal Bank of Canada, TNT and The International Olympic Committee working with gun agencies such as W+K Portland, Y&R NY, Sapient and Cole&Webber.
Mat studied at Supinfocom France where he directed his first animated short film ‘En Tus Brazos’. This tango love story won awards the world over including an ‘Excellence Award’ at Siggraph 2007 and was screened during the World Tango Championship in Buenos Aires. Mat, a recipient of awards from Clio, Young Guns and Shoot, likes to play with all media, often mixing them to create breathtakingly poetic environments. Just signed he is already in production on his first job with Kia via Inocean Sydney.
