Michael is a film and television editor with over 20 years of experience. Michael tells stories. He tells them at 24 frames per second, sometimes 30 and at 300?...he's just plain awesome. He trusts his rhythm, trusts his instincts and by so doing, he's always been able to hit the right beats. Beats make moments...and those moments make for great film!
An artist from childhood, Mike’s interest in filmmaking took hold as he was finishing high school. “I gravitated to film because it was all inclusive of the artisitic disciplines I knew and loved. Over the years I’ve discovered that there’s nothing else I’d rather be doing than creatively exploiting images. That’s all editing really is anyway; creative problem solving and unadulterated manipulation. And staying invisible. By that I mean not letting the edit interfere with the viewing experience. If the audience can become immersed in the story, then I’ve done my job. It's incredibly satisfying to watch an audience react to a moment I’ve created; sweating palms, an unexpected jump, fighting back the tears or full on screaming.”
