I'm a director/screenwriter by trade and an editor by necessity. I have a fondness for magical realism, but I'm interested in all genres and styles. Given the choice, I'd rather make ET than Blue Valentine any day of the week. I'm currently in pre-production on a cinematic short film, Juliebug; check the loglines and my social media for more info.

If I have my druthers, I'll make feature films for a living until the day I die. Nothing makes me happier than the magic on set when everything's finally clicking and everything that lens picks up is golden. If people like my movies, well, all the better.

I'd love to work with other people of similar interests. Particularly, I'm interested in meeting producers and writers with whom I can develop ideas into scripts, and scripts in films. Creative collaboration doesn't always work out, but when it does it makes all the failures worthwhile. Feel free to message me, and if you're in Los Angeles perhaps we can do lunch, as it were.

Name: Michael Willer

Lives in: Los Angeles, California

Company: Aeronautical Pictures

Occupation: Director, Editor and Screenwriter

Unique traits: I shoot with a style of heightened realism, or "magical realism" similar to Steven Spielberg, Sam Mendes, and Alfred Hitchcock. (They're heroes of mine, so that's not to say that I'm the same or as good as they are.) A striking visual is virtually worthless without poignant story and characters to justify its existence.
