I am DOROTTYA MATHE [dorottja m’at’e] a New York based Producer originally from Hungary where I worked in the entertainment business for 7 years before moving to New York in 2007 to pursue international co-productions.
I tremendously enjoy the eclecticism of projects I have been working on for various mediums. I produced slow-motion video installations like Portraits in Dramatic Time featuring Alan Rickman, Liev Schreiber, Holly Hunter etc., commissioned by the Lincoln Center Festival, Figure Studies, which premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and Dries Von Noten Retrospective that was exhibited in Paris' Musée des Arts Décoratifs. Furthermore, Pardon us for Living but the Graveyard is Full, a music documentary on the garage-rock band the Fleshtones; Pepperoni, which was screened at the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival; Metamorphosis: Immersive Kafka, an experimental interactive short film, which was shot entirely with 360-degree spherical camera and won the Best Short Film Award at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival, Woman: The War Within, a dance-theatre-opera that premiered at the Baryshnikov Arts Center; Impermanent Collection: The Films, commissioned by The Whitney Museum of American Art, Voices of Change, a music video featuring the Harlem Gospel Choir; Fatelessness, a solo theatre performance based on the Novel-Prize-winning book by Hungarian author Imre Kertesz, which debuted at the Here Arts Center to critical acclaim; Sing for Hope: Pop-Up Pianos, a documentary about New York City‘s largest public art project.
