• Mike Wech

    Showrunner-Producer+

    Whether you are a Fortune 500 company looking for a creative way to move your products, a Television Network or Film Studio ready to launch you next franchise or a streaming media provider, you need creative ideas and the right team to bring your project to life.

     

    For the last 25 years, Mike Wech has helped production companies, producers, networks and studios bring their ideas to life. As a writer, director, producer, camera operator editor, post-production supervisor, colorist and sound designer, Mike has vast experience in every media department. This kind of knowledge is vital in bringing a project together on time, on budget and with excellence.

     

    Mike has crews available in Los Angeles, Miami, Houston, Atlanta and Toronto. He can provide everything you need to go from conception to completion on a project or he can jump in and work wherever you need the help, whether it's with his camera, his pen or his editing.

     

    With a vast network of talent, facilities and vendors willing to work with Mike at favorable rates, he can make sure your budget gets the most bang for the buck. Mike also has a network of vendors for finishing, deliverables and distribution of your project.

  • HOW CAN I SERVE YOU

    It Doesn't Matter Where You Are Now, It Matters How You Finish.

    Whatever Stage You're At, Mike Will Make Your Project Better.

    Pre-Production, Production, Post-Production

    Taking an idea from concept to completion is always a challenge. Sometimes what you envisioned for the project is not what you are looking at or you're not sure of the best way to get there.

     

    Mike has been called into hundreds of projects to troubleshoot and get the most out of the production. From script doctoring and consultation to a final editing polish, from stepping in mid-production to help things run smoother, to putting out major fires Mike can help you achieve the dream you set out to accomplish.

     

    But the best way to work with Mike is to start in pre-production so he can map out the plan and assemble or manage the team that will get the most from your project.

    I've had the opportunity to gain a lot of valuable experiences working in every department for a number of years. This gives me a keen insight into how to come up with solutions to get a project where it needs to be. Feel free to call me or email me for a consultation on your project.
