It Doesn't Matter Where You Are Now, It Matters How You Finish.
Whatever Stage You're At, Mike Will Make Your Project Better.
Pre-Production, Production, Post-Production
Taking an idea from concept to completion is always a challenge. Sometimes what you envisioned for the project is not what you are looking at or you're not sure of the best way to get there. Mike has been called into hundreds of projects to troubleshoot and get the most out of the production. From script doctoring and consultation to a final editing polish, from stepping in mid-production to help things run smoother, to putting out major fires Mike can help you achieve the dream you set out to accomplish. But the best way to work with Mike is to start in pre-production so he can map out the plan and assemble or manage the team that will get the most from your project.
I've had the opportunity to gain a lot of valuable experiences working in every department for a number of years. This gives me a keen insight into how to come up with solutions to get a project where it needs to be.
Feel free to call me or email me for a consultation on your project.
It took over 25 years of hard work, constant learning and on the job experience to master all of these skills.
