Born and raised in the small town of Charlton, Massachusetts, Matthew Manyak has always been a highly-creative individual. As a child, Manyak was always engrossing himself in channeling his imagination into physical mediums in the format of drawings and short stories.

At the age of 12, living in the tightly-knit town of Apex, North Carolina, he began developing several small-scale backyard films with his friends and neighbors, further kindling a flame that would quickly grow to become the primary driving force in his life.

When Manyak was 17, in his junior year of high school, he published his first commercial novel, Wolves of the Shadowlands.

After the Fall (2017) was his first major production. The film has gone on to receive numerous Official Selection laurels at film festivals across the country and has been screened at the TCL Chinese Theater in Los Angeles at the HollyShorts Film Festival and the All American High School Film Festival in Times Square.

He has received over 15 awards and nominations for his work and has received acclaim from several industry leaders.

Aside from writing and filmmaking, Matthew Manyak is the CEO of Alignment Entertainment, a rapidly-growing, Florida-based film and television production company. Alignment Entertainment currently has 1 full-length series, 2 pilots, 4 short films, and a myriad of web content in development. Matthew is the director and executive producer for the company’s current flagship project, Deathless.

He also plays executive roles in a number of other companies internationally, maintaining a reach bridging across industries from multimedia to the financial sector.

Manyak graduated with an Associate of Arts degree from Florida State University in 2018 and currently resides in northern Florida.
