A graduate of Chapman University (Orange, CA) and GNOMON School of Visual FX (Hollywood, CA), Matthew Spradlin immediately moved into CGI and spent several years as a CGI FX Supervisor, working alongside FX award winner Jeff Okun .
In 2001, not too long after making his first award winning short film, Spradlin also optioned his first screenplay to Kurt Russell’s production company, Heller Highwater Productions .
Spradlin sold his first of two TV shows in 2006, one of which was to SyFy (True Believer/ Rosario Dawson, Exec. Producer), while spending the same year penning a draft of what would become 2009’s biggest selling independent comic book/ graphic novel: Bad Kids Go To Hell .
In 2012, Spradlin helmed the feature of Bad Kids Go To Hell, which was released in theaters by PHASE 4 (internationally by Red Sea Media) . As of this year, the movie is one of Netflix’s Top 10 streamed films.
Spradlin is currently developing his second best selling comic book, The Adventures of A ComicCon Girl, into a TV series for MTV .
