Director Biography - Michael Bitanga

I find writing in third person weird for bios--so I won't. I graduated from SDSU, majoring in English and minoring in film, worked at the legendary Blockbuster video, reviewed films for 10 years, and entered many a short screenplay competition. I used to spend a big chunk of my money watching movies and buying special edition Blu-Rays, but now I spend big chunks of money making short films.

P.S. I still buy special edition Blu-Rays...and then never watch them because they're on one of my 37 streaming services anyway.
