UPDATE: AS OF 08 MAY 2014 MICHAEL WILL BE TRAVELLING ACROSS NEW ZEALAND FOR THE BEST PART OF A YEAR, PUTTING ANY OF HIS UK BASED PROJECTS ON HOLD INDEFINITELY. MICHAEL'S PROGRESS CAN BE FOLLOWED AT CAPTAINMICKALL.TUMBLR.COM/NZ.
Michael, a graduate of the UCA Farnham Film Production degree, is the original driving force behind Dark Angel Pictures. He created the production company name in November 2005 after making his first "films" Art Wars and The Endeavour in school. It was there he found a passion for film making and hasn't stopped since. In 2012 he properly revived the Dark Angel Pictures name, on finishing university, for developing serious film work under, teaming up with fellow graduate Josh Harris.
Michael is primarily a Director but has a diverse range of skills turning his hand to almost anything if the situation requires, including producing, camera, edit, sound and production design with a working knowledge of the software and equipment used in each. Out in the industry he works primarily as an assistant director to gain new contacts and experience, having credits on a number of shorts and features while building his own directing reputation with shorts and other film/video work.
Away from film Michael enjoys Archery, Fire staff, gaming and a fashion sense with medieval and pirate influences, the latter being evident in some of the frequent alternative designs in the wardrobe of his characters.
