The Richard Wilmore Show

June 8, 2018 - I am a feature guest on The Richard Wilmore Show with Kateria Cozias. It was a video interview via Skype and I wasn't 100 percent prepared so I didn't get too dressed up! It was nice to talk about the podcast (as well as my own personal projects.)  Thank you Richard so much! It was a pleasure being on your show. The show is 30 minutes, two interviews that are 15 minutes each. I am the second interview. Please check it out! We look forward to having Richard on our show too! https://youtu.be/vCJHAclUC48

#RIP Jerry Maren

I had the great opportunity to see Jerry Maren years ago when he attended a screening of his film Dahmer vs Gacy that was screening at a horror festival I had helped launch. He was there with his wife Elizabeth (who sadly died not too long after) and a big plastic lollipop adorned with a colored bow. I found him charming and engaging - and growing up on The Wizard of Oz as all of us have, it was a true pleasure to meet him. He was a treasure no doubt and he will be missed. Thank you for the memories Jerry! I found this picture of the three of us that I have always cherished, as well as the video of the performance he did when he sang The Lollipop Guild to his wife! https://youtu.be/lmG61UqEHLI

Episode 14 – Del Obispo Road

So at the end of last year I wrote a short film based on a story told to me by my friend and actress Rochelle Robinson. I thought it would make a great film and I sat down and wrote it one day while on set filming.  My good friend Edward Coupland wanted to help produce it. Then I wrote my screenplay Axe. Edward read it and loved the complexity of the character. From there he asked me if I would consider adapting the short film Del Obispo Road into a feature - so that he could act in a film that was complex and well written as well.  I asked my friend Brantley - who had just finished his film Chuckles to assist me. We are very proud of this project!   https://open.spotify.com/episode/34KQkRBVS7sMzY5kMwWVGK Mimosas with Michael on Spotify https://youtu.be/ffCg2k5b3I0 BIOS: ...
