    That video is NOT Matt Austin’s work. It’s some weird mash up of Childish Gambino’s “firefly” music video with a clip of voltron and a crappy guitar. Who even pulled that up?

      Clearly you haven’t heard of proof of concept videos. Which are exactly that: mashups.

        The problem is that he has a number of ACTUAL shorts on that very page that he made and directed. Out of those, they decided to pick who amounts to about a AMV made by a highschooler. :/ I’m not saying the guy isn’t talented, I don’t know his body of work, but THAT video will give people the idea he has worked in scifi like film which he hasn’t.

          Totally fair enough. At the same time, though, Marc Webb hadn’t directed anything close to action/comic book movie and was still given the chance to bridge rom-com to Spiderman.

            Thus why the only thing I said was regarding the video clip. I love fresh blood, but to be fair Marc had worked for a long time in music videos, and those really were what sold the studio on him. The ability to bring sound and setting to action.
