ABOUT THE FILMMAKER

Michel Kreisel was born  in Caracas, Venezuela. His passion for movies and filmmaking began very soon after. 

During his time as an undergraduate in the U.S., Michel immersed himself in a broad study of the craft of filmmaking and animation. Crewing in different positions on a number of exciting projects, he was able to gain a comprehensive overview of the different disciplines involved in bringing a film to life. 

Hired as a visual effects artist at Rhythm & Hues upon graduation, Michel was exposed to the talent and knowledge that made the company one of the leaders in the industry. Throughout his prolific 6-year career as a VFX compositor, he was fortunate to work on some extraordinary projects such as Life of Pi, X-Men: First Class, and Harry Potter 7. 

 

Michel is now pursuing his lifelong dream of directing; he is currently attending USC’s prestigious School of Cinematic Arts.
