I hired Michael to direct and produce the winning short script from our 2015 FiLMLaB Contest (The Return of Bug Eyed Bill) . These are always challenging shoots that operate within a very compressed time frame and on tiny budgets. Michael accepted the challenge without hesitation, assembling a professional crew able to keep up with him. His attention to preproduction details and clear communications made for a smooth day of shooting and quick turnaround in post. It is fair to say he is a creative force, a true visionary. He is also a true professional and very, very prepared.Ruth Witteried, Exec. Director, FiLMLaB
Michael Parisien is the kind of film maker you want for your project – creative, resourceful, diligent, and imminently professional. Through a keen cinematic eye, he tells his stories with humor and humanity. I loved working with him and can’t wait to do it again.Randall Jahnson, Screenwriter
We loved collaborating with Mike Parisien at Going Street Films. He understood our goal for a fundraising video and used his vision and artistic talent to capture the magic and essence of the families affected by ectodermal dysplasias who we serve. He was easy to work with and professional in every way. His video moves us to tears each time we watch – and we have watched it a lot! We will definitely work with him again.Jodi Edgar Reinhardt, NFED
