Director Biography - Michael Summers

Began journey towards becoming a film maker in 1999 when he attended Niagara College for Broadcasting - Radio, Television and Film. Originally his path was intended to be in front of the camera as an on-air personality. However, during his second year of college Michael quickly found out that presentation was not for him. Unfortunately he dropped out of college that year but not before getting bit by the film bug during his first year's projects for college. Returning to the same college and the same course in 2005, Michael started from scratch and graduated in 2008 with his focus on Television Production. Immediately after graduation he began a small solo video production business and started making videos for clients looking to promote their business or products. In between commercial productions Michael would work on his own projects where he could practice on and show his creativity. Since 2010 he has been making more and more creative projects such as music videos, time-lapse photography and even still photography but most recently short films. Michael continues to learn and practice his film making skills because it is part of his life. Michael thinks about shooting films and is coming up with story ideas all the time. It is his goal to become a full-time film maker creating movies that are compelling and fun for the audience to experience and remember.
