His first three feature films, Fairview St., Handlebar, Lucky, all screened at Celebration Cinema in Lansing, MI for week long runs to sell out crowds. All three films have played nationally and internationally garnering many awards.
Since 2008 he has released a string of 16 award-winning short films.
McCallum was honored to receive the "Michigan Independent Filmmaker Of the Year Award 2012" by the Uptown Film Festival in Detroit.
In 2015 McCallum and his Rebel Pictures team finished their fourth feature film, Buffalo! He was excited to work, again, with his talented Father, William C. McCallum, who plays the lead role in Buffalo. They also wrote the film together.
It has won 22 awards and received 12 nominations in 38 film festivals. It has also played in Italy, Amsterdam, Switzerland, Singapore, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Grand Rapids, The Caribbean, Lithuania, Greece, Amsterdam, Russia, Hong Kong, Portugal, Indonesia, Italy and Australia!
With the 21 projects that Rebel Pictures has made they have won 117 major awards, been nominated for 99 other major awards and been accepted into 251 film festivals internationally!
In 2013 and 2014, he was invited to direct a short film for the Production Workshop for the Grand Rapids Film Festival (GRFF). Both films were finished by McCallum and one of his editors and have won awards nationally. He currently serves on GRFF's advisory board and leads the committee which produced the 36-Hour Challenge.
In addition to film, Michael is also an accomplished theater performer. He took on the iconic role of "Stanley Kowalski" in Lansing Community College's production of A Streetcar Named Desire! He also co-hosts a weekly radio show, Show Biz Weekly, in Mid-Michigan.
