Michael Wiese interview
New MWP Imprint
Testimonials“The field of books about the entertainment industry has become cluttered with publishers who dabble in the area without a specific focus on it. Michael Wiese is one of the best publishers in this field because he specializes in this area and consistently selects authors that have an actual mastery of their subject and can communicate their knowledge effectively. I am proud to be associated with Michael Wiese.”
Catherine Clinch , Associate Publisher, Creative Screenwriting Magazine/Screenwriting Expo
MomsDigitalWorld.com“Michael and I were in many team meetings that planned the overall "on-air" marketing strategy and program planning "glue" that is interstitial programming (tune-ins, animation, bumpers, promos, shorts, interviews, etc.). I worked closely with Michael, as program research director, in helping determine what the goals and success metrics of that programming were from consumer perspective. I remember specifically Michael's ability to accommodate the needs of so many different departments within Showtime leveraging the interstitial programming as an asset. I learned a lot from him, as well. His creative, executional and managerial insight were impressive and I recall in what high regard he was held.”

Nora Ryan"I've read many of Michael Wiese's line of books, and I haven't found a clinker among 'em. The writers are people in the trenches, people who've been there and done that. Further, they've come out the other side wiser, braver, and willing to share their insights. Since the bewildering field of film slides between craft and art, a new or experienced filmmaker needs some maps. Michael Wiese's books are road signs."
