Matthew Watkins was born in Canterbury Hospital in 1988. By the age of five he became extremely interested in the Ghostbusters franchise after he had seen the initial Ghostbusters film. From that point on, Matthew had dreamed of writing and starring in his own Ghostbusters movie. He felt this was difficult, but fun for him.
At the age of twenty-two, Matthew was cast to play the part of Darth Asmodeus in a Star Wars fan-film called Rise of the Sith. During the filming of the movie, he became very good friends with the Writer/Director of the film and the two of them created plans for Matthew's New Age Ghostbusters fan-film.
