MICHAEL D. OLMOS
Director

Olmos found his love of storytelling from an early age. From his fascination of drawing comic books, to his passion for reading fiction and watching movies, this love of story continues to inspire him.

Michael's passion for film brought him to Columbia University, NY where he studied literature during the year and traveled during the summer to Chiapas, Mexico to document the suffering of the indigenous people of the region. Running from military backed death squads, while trying to bring food to refugees and protecting the footage they had captured on film, the trip, which had begun as little more than a summer adventure became a life changing journey that cemented his belief in the power of filmmaking. After graduating from Columbia with degrees in Creative Writing and Contemporary American Literature, and working on movies in different departments to learn all facets of filmmaking, Michael was honored to achieve a top position in the IFP Film Market Emerging Narratives for his feature script "After Hours." The story traces the lives of interrelated characters in Manhattan, on the eve of 9/11. His first short "The Last Winter" was an official selection of the Los Angeles Latino Int. Film Festival. In 2005, Olmos founded Chamber Six Productions, LLC an independent comic book publishing and film production where he produced animated shorts based on the 28 Days Later graphic novels for Fox Atomic, and his own online comics series, "Puro Yayo." Dark Horse Entertainment produced his first feature film "Splinter." The film was a selection in several festivals and won the Best Editing award at the NY Latino Film Festival. In 2009, he directed "Division Day" from the feature film, "Bedrooms." Olmos currently serves as Vice President of Motion Pictures for Academy Award Nominee Edward James Olmos' Olmos Productions and is in development on several projects.
