Matthew Saville came to wider prominence as a writer/director with his one hour film Roy Hollsdotter Live, a bittersweet comedy about a stand-up comedian experiencing a personal breakdown. The film won awards at the Sydney Film Festival in 2003, as well as at the Australian Writers' Guild Awards.
The success of that film led, among other things, to a highly successful career as a television comedy director, including the acclaimed Big Bite and We Can Be Heroes, on both occasions working with Chris Lilley.
In addition, Matthew Saville has directed episodes of the hugely successful Australian television drama series The Secret Life of Us. Currently, he is filming his first full-length feature, Noise, which began a seven-week shoot in Melbourne, Australia on February 20, 2006.
