High five!

If we can meet in person, we'll do a slow-mo video of a sweet high five. One that would rival the great films of the 80s. Thanks for your support. Fuck yeah Maverick.

About Michael Racanelli

I'm an Emmy award-winning filmmaker living in Los Angeles, California. I know, you haven't heard that one before. Here's the part that's slightly different...

I moved out here nearly 9 years ago with literally 3 suitcases and $350. That's right, you read that correctly, I showed up here with $350 to my name. I had a 2002 Cavalier with 160,000 miles and no working A/C. Things have changed a bit since then, but not without it's balance of successes and setbacks. I had to spend a year back in Chicago as my dad was diagnosed with (and shortly passed away from) cancer, and I've traveled back and forth quite a bit as my mom received a kidney transplant in 2017.

Despite this, I've kept going. This is who I am and I can't do anything else.

From my little one bedroom in West Hollywood, I'm working on a number of projects (32 projects in various stages -- I'm not kidding, I have a spreadsheet to track it all).

I've completed a few things already, including an Emmy award winning spot, for a great cause: http://www.brightonpark.media

And this is the part where I ask for your financial assistance...

I do have a full-time day job, and I barely sleep. I'd love to fake it and pretend this is easy, but it's just not the case. If you appreciate my work, my story, and my drive, and have the means, I would DEEPLY APPRECIATE your investment into myself and my work. Pursuing the arts are a struggle, but they're important. If you can, please become part of my success story!
