Director Biography – Michael Seabolt
Growing up in a small town in Maryland, I did the usual small town activities – played sports and hung out with friends. But, what I dreamed about was making movies. I have always had a love for the horror/thriller genres. Waiting for my parents to go to bed and then sneaking downstairs to watch horror movies is my favorite memory that I shared with my brother. The scarier that better – even if it meant that neither of us got any sleep that night.
After college, I quickly figured out the 9-5 world wasn’t for me. I packed up my car and headed to Los Angeles! No job, no network or connects – just a dream and a strong work ethic. I started as a PA and worked almost every department. I ended up in the Assistant Director world and have made a career of it for the past couple years. Though it’s an awesome job, I felt something was missing and wanted a chance to express more of my creativity. After saving and planning for months, I was able to make my dream come true – my Directorial Debut short film Sleep Tight. I shot this film in hopes of it leading to a feature film. So keep your eyes peeled during Sleep Tight to see if you discover the hidden practical and lighting effects.
