New York, NY, September 20, 2012 – In the world of entertainment, trying to make huge waves can be as futile as the same effort in the open ocean. Time, effort, studying, training, mistakes and successes all culminate in the promise of true talent.

Michael has directed films, television spots, commercials, and PSA’s, and in an effort to bring his unique perspective and industry knowhow to the forefront of a competitive marketplace.

GRADUATION | a Short Film by Graham Powell

Please support a great film project I just came aboard to Executive Produce by first time director Graham Powell.   DONATE:

The Story
When a young drug dealer’s ultimate test of allegiance to a crime boss goes horribly wrong, two detectives called to a crime scene watch the line between loyalties suddenly become a deadly blur.
Nico, the most notorious drug lord in the city has handpicked "Kid," an aspiring young dealer to become his protégé.  Kid has known no other life than the hustling scene he witnessed growing up -- a life filled with drugs and violence where success is measured by money, loyalty and respect.  By street standards, Nico is clearly on top.  To Kid and the rest of his crew, merely being acknowledged by Nico is a major accomplishment.  Being taken under the kingpin’s wing is the epitome of success.  But to prove he has the guts to graduate to the big leagues, Kid must first prove his allegiance to Nico. 

Veteran homicide detective Jonathan Sparks has spent years trying to take down Nico’s empire.  Sparks understands the street game all too well. Now he’s schooling his rookie partner, Detective Jeff Larson on what he’s had to learn the hard way: in the streets, the only rules that matter are those made by thugs like Nico, and you can’t always trust what you think you know.  When Sparks and Larson are called to investigate a homicide in what appears to be convenience store robbery gone wrong, a cruel and unusual twist proves that in the deadly game being played on the streets, you never know who’s playing for which team until it’s much too late.

Production Notes YNTSKY [PART 1]

“You wanna get away with murder kill a rapper.” KRS-ONE

People always asked me the same question. Why did I want to make a film about
Hip-Hop? My answer always made reference to my love for Hip-Hop and my fear
of where it was headed. My first recollection of hip-hop was the classic film
“Crush Groove”. I was extremely young but the film is burned in my memory. It
had an enormous effect on me. Run DMC, LL Cool J, The Fat Boys, Curtis Blow,
that was the golden era. Of Hip Hop. I wanted to make a film that capture the
essence of where hip-hop was right now. A film that was timeless and that truly
represented what hip-hop was about today. The good and the bad. I wanted to
get away from the more comedic films about hip hop like CB 4 and away from the
clichéʼ gangster hip hop films like State Property. Donʼt get me wrong, those films
were great for what they were, but I felt a need to film that was a stark contrast to
those images.
