Matt Morris Films
Matt Morris is an award-winning filmmaker dedicated to telling stories that profile unique individuals. His Emmy-nominated film Pickin' & Trimmin' (2008) profiled a barbershop in rural North Carolina where the barbers cut hair for six decades and every weekend musicians jammed in the back room. Watermelon Man (2009) introduced the world to Vern Switzer, a farmer-turned-children's book author. Mr. Happy Man (2011), winner of the audience award for best short film at AFI Silverdocs, focused on Johnny Barnes, Bermuda's most beloved citizen. For the last three decades, Johnny has devoted six hours of every day to an endearing traffic ritual that spreads happiness to everyone he sees. Matt is currently working on two documentary projects and a narrative feature film.
