My Cover Letter, Reel & Resumé
EXT. NEW YORK CITY, 1986 – COVER LETTER – DAY
Michael Broz began his film career in New York City working on classic independent films such as Troma’s, Toxic Avenger, but would soon make the cross-country move to Hollywood, where he would find himself at the studios of the legendary, B-movie king, Roger Corman.
Roger Corman’s, New Horizons Studio was a former lumber yard turned movie studio that produced a dozen or so B-movies a year. Turning out movies for Roger was jokingly referred to as, “going to the Corman Film School,” an education and opportunity that furthered the careers of distinguished directors the likes of Coppola, Scorsese, Howard, Demme, Bogdanovich and many others. During Michael’s tenure there, he would work with 4 future nominees and 3 winners of the Academy Award® for Cinematography.
For Michael, it was always about camera and he pulled focus on more than 30 feature films, however, this aspiring cinematographer would soon begin shooting his own projects – music videos and short films. A few years later, however, his focus would shift again and he would return to the east coast to be near his young daughter.
A new career path would begin to take shape at an ad agency, back in NYC – in marketing and graphic design – but when the company folded, Michael would gather his skill sets, design, photography, filmmaking, storytelling and incorporate as Eye Notion Visual Concepts, Inc. consulting for enterprise clients such as Clinique, Origins, Lab Series, Estée lauder, Macy’s and Condé Nast (Magazine titles: Golf Digest, Teen Vogue, Glamour, Cookie, Lucky, etc.)
This helped cement his education as a marketer and designer, but his passion for telling stories on film was beginning to take on increased urgency and it was time to begin directing his own projects.
