Matthew was cast as the lead role of Benedict in the new NYU Film the Color Parade. Directed by Meera Joshi, the Color Parade is a loosely adapted experimental short film based on Herman Hesse's Steppenwolf. A Clark Gable-esque classy man (played by Matthew) waits by the water for someone, but his waiting is interrupted by a group of colorfully dressed people hitting tambourines and hula hooping. He sees the woman he waits for amongst the crowd and decides to follow them. What he experiences is life changing as he realizes they are all part of himself.
