Motiejus (Matthew) Barauskas is finally graduating, having attempted three other courses in three different countries. He is now content, having found something he truly enjoys doing. His passion lies in cinematography, although he appreciates the art and craft of directing. Matthew hopes and dares to disturb the mind, in a constructive and meaningful way - a way that invites questions, the answers to which demands further questions from within. Sven Nykvist, Hoyte van Hoytema, Michael Slovis, Alex Nepomniaschy, and Matthew Libatique continue to inspire him, while his thesis dissertation explores Chung-hoon Chung’s use of aesthetic subtext. Matthew’s works aim to express a perception, not an impression of reality. It is Poetic, perceived by the heart, not the eye.
