Pippa Best , Director, Cornwall Film
PippaBest.com“As Director of Eastman Kodak's Worldwide Student Filmmaker Program, I had the pleasure of working with Michael for several years presenting workshops for student filmmakers at the International Cannes Film Festival. Kodak sponsored student interns (over a hundred) working in The American Pavilion during the Cannes film festival---these interns were students interested in production and the motion picture business from dozens of the top film schools in the US and Canada, and around the world. For several years in the early 2000s, Michael presented a full day workshop to these interns which dealt with independent film production, financing, development, and marketing and distribution. Of all the great things that happened to these students while at Cannes, Michael's seminar was always a distinct highlight of their experience. He is a natural presenter who knows the nuances of the entire spectrum of independent production from a true insider's perspective. He was spontaneous and creative with the students, and very skilled at involving them with Q&A and other activity. His development tutorials are still being talked about by those who were there. The students always gave him high marks, he delivered on Kodak's goals to promote film and understanding of the business, and it was a delight working with such an accomplished professional.”
John Mason, Director of Eastman Kodak’s Worldwide Student Filmmaker Program
FilmBigIsland.com“Michael is a hard-working book publisher and filmmaker with a sense of ethics. He offers creative artists a variety of opportunities to express themselves and his company supports their work through long-range global efforts. If you have a great idea for a project dealing with film, video or new media I recommend that you send him a proposal.” April 14, 2009

MarcieBegleiter.com"The first step in the difficult journey of filmmaking and screenwriting is knowledge of the craft and industry. The books from Michael Wiese Productions will start you in the right direction and serve as reliable reference points on your path to success."
Shelly Mellott, Script Magazine
“I first met Michael when he was at Vestron Video and I was Editorial Director/Publisher at Videography magazine....some 30 years ago. Over the years we have both travelled many career paths, but Michael continues to amaze and inspire me in his chosen roles as successful book publisher, filmmaker and entrepreneur. What began has a professional relationship grew into a friendship that remains to this day. I won't list his credentials. You can find those elsewhere. What I will gladly attest to is his character, creativity, and loyalty. In short, a good man.”
John Rice , Publisher/Editorial Director, PSN/Media Horizons
KoMediaGroup.com“Michael creates the best film making books in the industry, from creating a film concept to getting it sold, and all of the execution steps of working with actors, location, filming, and post production. The books are professional yet can also be used by aspiring film makers. Michael and his team including Ken Lee are well known in the film and publishing industry.”
Howard Fisher , Managing Director, The Fisher Company
TheFisherCompany.com“Michael is a forward-thinking publisher. His company provides a great environment for authors.”
Sheldon Bull , Writer , Elephantbucks.com
Elephantbucks.com“Michael helped us quite a lot in the early years of PBS Home Video. Although it seems obvious now, at the time few people purchased, rather than rented, videos. Michael's imagination, creativity and wise counsel helped us design several of our cornerstone releases and to help build a brand-new market.”
Al Cattabiani, President PBS Home Video
IThentic.com“Michael is a smart, author-friendly publisher, expert in the field of filmmaking, who always looks for creative ways to put the leading titles on the market, and to promote those titles into a leading position in the market.”
Chris Riley , Author, The Hollywood Standard, Michael Wiese Productions
ScriptHollyWood.com“From an author’s perspective, working with Michael and his wonderful team at MWP is a pleasure from beginning to end. Clear communication, unwavering support and deep commitment to creating quality books in a field which he knows and loves are key qualities which Michael brings to the table. In a professional relationship which goes back to 2004, I have found Michael and Ken Lee to be patient, consistent and willing to work in detail with authors towards producing books about which everyone involved can feel proud.
