Director Biography - Michael Duhamel

As a self-trained filmmaker I got my start filming corporate videos, trade shows and weddings. It was those opportunities I learned about how to operate a camera and tell stories.

It was the major event in my life of meeting my father at 37 that took me on a journey of discovering my roots. I wanted to document the experience and by doing so I ended up making my first documentary film.

I am hoping this is the start of a new and exciting path into future filmmaking.
