Who is Matthew Bennett?
I'm Matthew Bennett and I am a retail, stoner, drifter, film maker, slavery kinda guy. I have done a couple projects around the Chicagoland area, such as the Chicago Rocumentary where I went out and filmed a bunch of different music scenes that were going on in the Chicagoland area, that was a lot of fun. I am also working on my own feature film, The Matt Bennett Show, which has been an ongoing project but I have to say, that has been like my film school that has taught me how to be better at film making. So all the years I put into the Matt Bennett Show has helped me come to this point. I consider myself a drifter because I am always on the move. I am always living strange lifestyles such as in my car or in an apartment or a motel while I am working jobs and doing everything else. I am really just on the move all the time and this would be a huge dream because I would love to travel on trains all over the country and live like that.
