MORE WORK FROM THE DIRECTOR
As a commercial director, Matt Dilmore has helmed offbeat campaigns for KFC, Little Caesars, Gatorade, Pepsi, PlayStation, Cheerios, and more. Memorably, his parody ad for The Shining’s ‘Overlook Hotel’ aired as part of the 90th Oscars broadcast. His documentary ‘The Great Imposter’ was part of ESPN’s Emmy award-winning ’30-for-30’ series. The short tells the story of Detroit salesman Barry Bremen who gained notoriety in the 1980s for successfully posing as an athlete at over twenty major professional sporting events. Additionally, Dilmore has directed music videos for bands such as Black Lips, CSS, Wise Blood, and Black Moth Super Rainbow. He founded the cult internet-radio program Pussyfoot. And meticulously restored a long-lost art film—a print of which is permanently housed in the Academy archive. Most recently he has enjoyed a unique creative partnership with legendary soul musician Swamp Dogg, directing not only his music video for ‘Stardust’ but also serving as the creative director of his album ‘I Need a Job…So I Can Buy More Auto-Tune’ (2022).
