Movies have always been an inspiration for me. I'm equally inspired by everything from the early cinematic shorts of Georges Méliès, the drone-dread art-house horror of Panos Cosmatos, to the dream-logic and offbeat humor of David Lynch.
I directed my first short film in 2020 and have a ton of ideas for future short films that I hope to create when time and inspiration allow!
Rabbits: A Short Tale of Backyard Horror (2020)
B&W / 03:36 / Digital Film + iPhone
Filmed and conceived during the height of home-quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic, RABBITS is Michael's first directorial short and a filmic love letter to artists like Maya Deren, David Lynch, Terry Gilliam, Kelly Link, and Lewis Carroll.
