Matt Wilson stops by NWP to talk about his company Privateer Press and his big move to Hollywood!

Matt Wilson has worked in the hobby game industry since 1995 as a concept artist, illustrator, art director and game designer and has even managed to get alittle writing done. After working for several game companies, from the smallest startup to the largest corporation, Matt founded Privateer Press in 2000 as an opportunity to create expressions of his own original property concepts.

Matt has created multiple worlds, designed several games and produced almost a decade's worth of successful products, including the award winning WARMACHINE and HORDES miniatures games, the Iron Kingdoms RPG setting, and the latest Collectible Minatures Game sensation, Monsterpocalypse. Matt has gathered six of the industry's esteemed Origin awards and numerous other accolades for the products produced by Privateer Press. Today, he is Privateer's owner and Chief Creative Officer, overseeing the creative development of every aspect of the company, from game development to minatures design to marketing.

Matt has now taken his concepts to Hollywood. Dreamworks and Tim Burton have aquired the film rights to Monsterpocalypse. Matt Wilson is positioned to become a major force in Hollywood as he drives his creative company to new levels.
