Michael is currently writing ‘We Watched the Sun Disappear’, a psychological mystery drama/survival movie set in Greenland in 1909. As a director,. Michael is currently developing a unique feature project with the Irish Film Board and Fastnet Films that will see James Joyce’s acclaimed short story collection Dubliners brought to the screen, while also prepping to direct his first feature film.
