ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Michael earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from York University in Toronto, Canada, and a Masters in Fine Arts in Directing from the American Film Institute in Los Angeles, California. Michael began his career in Canada where his work was recognized by The National Film Board of Canada, the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television and the Canadian Society of Cinematographers.
His short film, The Legend Of Razorback, starring Academy Award® nominated actor Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Body Snatcher, Death Of A Salesman, Innerspace), won awards in Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, and Temecula where it won the Audience Choice Award, and Houston WorldFest where it received the Eastman Kodak Scholarship Award and the Gold Special Jury Award for Best Dramatic Student Film.
Michael’s earlier films, Fishtales and Lost & Found, were received with critical acclaim at festivals in Los Angeles, Toronto, Montreal, and Tel Aviv.
In 2011, Michael developed and directed his debut feature, the psychological thriller Wrecked, starring Adrien Brody (The Pianist, Darjeeling Limited, Houdini) and Caroline Dhavernas (Hannibal, Breach, Off The Map) and written by Christopher Dodd and produced by Kyle Mann. IFC Midnight and Alliance Films distributed the film domestically, and EOne handled worldwide sales, and Telefilm Canada provided production financing. The film was released theatrically and has sold in over 50 countries worldwide including Germany (Universum), France (BAC Films), UK (NBC Universal), Latin America (California), and Middle East (Shooting Stars).
In 2013, Michael co-wrote and directed the thriller Kill For Me for Sony Pictures, co-written with Christopher Dodd and produced by Kyle Mann, and starring Katie Cassidy (Arrow, Taken, A Nightmare on Elm Street), Tracy Spiridakos (Revolution, Being Human), and Donal Logue (Gotham, Ghost Rider, Zodiak).
