The New York-based production company co-founded by Morgan Spurlock and Jeremy Chilnick has promoted the longtime producer to partner.

Galkin will continue his responsibilities of executive producing, directing and developing new content for the company.

Galkin has produced numerous documentary films, television and web series for Warrior Poets including the features One Direction: This Is Us and Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hopen (pictured) as well as ESPN Films’ 30 For 30 documentary, The Dotted Line.

“During his tenure at Warrior Poets, Matthew has brought his unique energy, creative experience and storytelling mastery to projects in both the top-tier documentary film world as a director and producer and in the reality/non-fiction TV world as a show runner, producer and director,” said Spurlock.

“Matthew’s outlook on how he approaches storytelling has been an excellent fit with us from the beginning,” added Jeremy Chilnick. “It’s incredibly exciting to find someone as talented and passionate as Matthew is to work alongside us as our company continues to grow.”
