Director Biography – Michael Willer

Me smiling with slate cropped

Michael is self-taught, though he did get into film school. He decided to move to LA instead and dive in. School became learning from the professionals he met and then making short film after short film to let it set in.

He’s worked in the trenches of development at Rough Diamond Productions, managed the G&E crew on the set of You Should Meet My Son 2!, and worked 14 hour days in the edit bay to finish The Nurse on schedule. If he’s writing, he can keep an eye on budget restrictions, if he’s on set he can speak the crew’s language as easily as the actors’.

Because of this, he’s known as the guy who will show up and get things done on time, under budget. You can see his creative eye in his films; just as important is having a smooth process. This is what he does best.
