  • Mike Wech

    Showrunner/Media Specialist

    I've helped hundreds of production companies, producers, networks and studios bring their ideas to life.

     

    As a showrunner, writer, director, producer, camera operator editor, post-production supervisor, colorist and sound designer, I have vast experience in every media department.

     

    This kind of knowledge is vital in bringing a project together on time, on budget and with excellence. With boots on the ground, in the trenches, I am the guy who is making sure everything is done right.

     

    I can provide everything you need to take your project from conception to completion. With a vast network of talent, facilities and vendors I regularly work with, I can make sure to get the most cost-effective solutions for your budget.

     

    I have production crews available in Los Angeles, Miami, Houston, Colorado,, Tampa, Atlanta, Toronto and Internationally, plus a network of vendors for finishing, deliverables and distribution.

     

  • MY UNIQUE SKILL SET

     

    I've worked thousand of hours in pre-production production and post-production honing my craft and constantly learning new technologies, software and hardware. I truly love what I do and I have a strong passion to be the best. I push myself to keep learning, growing and getting better each day.
