PARTIZAN SWOOP FOR MATT BARON.
14 August 2019

Director Matt Baron targets world domination as he joins the roster at Partizan. Before anyone wishes to alert the UN, Baron is no maniacal dictator - he simply wishes to make the most of his new handlers' global reach.

The New Yorker explains: "I'm not someone who wishes to hit just one territory. I like that Partizan is a company with a unified vision of what an artist can achieve on a global level. Being repped by one team worldwide gives directors like me room to reach our goals on a much broader scale."


As his ambition grows, so does Baron's skill and flexibility as a filmmaker. Flitting between promos, commercials, short films, and other content, Baron relishes the chance to show what he can do whatever the market or medium.


Matt is the type of director we love to nurture at Partizan. He's young, talented, and ambitious, with a strong and unique creative point of view.

 ”

Such attributes naturally caught the eye of Partizan and their founder Georges Bermann, who says: "Matt knows how to develop and portray character, even in short formats, and that's a very important skill set. Above all, he's passionate, and is excited to direct music videos, as well as commercials and other content, branded or not."


But most importantly, Bermann thinks Baron can push on even further with his company's expertise: "Matt is the type of director we love to nurture at Partizan. He's young, talented and ambitious, with a strong and unique creative point of view."

Chuck in Baron's ability to whistle with his hands and it seems Partizan have signed the complete package.
