Michael J. Arbouet is becoming one of the most highly regarded creative forces in the independent film industry. In the last two years Arbouet has put out a couple of amazing films and has had the pleasure of working with actors Robert Clohessy, Tony Lo Bianco and Roger Guenveur Smith just to name a few. Having trained as a filmmaker he impressed his colleagues with his storytelling abilities and visual style as well as his willingness to learn the fundamentals of the business, Michael has produced an independent crime
drama, Send No Flowers, featuring Sean Young (Blade Runner, Ace Venture) and Gianni Russo (The Godfather, Any Given Sunday). With the film SEND NO FLOWERS director Fred Carpenter said “A film made with real stars that has the look and feel of a real Hollywood film but somehow isn’t is a rare thing
and it takes someone like Arbouet that has that special kind of vision and understanding of how a movie is put together to pull something like this off is simply amazing.”
