Like love

Director/Producer/Story Writer

Feature | Anti-romantic-comedy | Post-Production | Coming 2019

 

LIKE LOVE is a vaguely romantic comedy about two best friends who are perfect for each other in every way, were it not for one very small problem: she’s not into him. Determined to preserve their friendship, Harper attempts to reciprocate Jackson’s affection in an epic quest to fall in love. Her home, sanity, and best friend are on the line, and all she has to do is love him back. After all, how hard could it be? Right?

Currently in post-production, LIKE LOVE was filmed in Boise, Idaho after a successful crowdfunding campaign that raised over $31K.

Janet Jupiter is an ordinary young woman who has always lived in the shadow of Holly and Emily, her superhero mother and sister.

Then Emily gets killed in action, Janet and Holly grow even further apart, each dealing with the grief in their own way. But when Holly begins to develop symptoms of Alzheimer's, Janet discovers she is the only one able to retire her mother before she becomes a danger to the very people she's trying to save.

A TUESDAY, SOMEWHERE

Director

Short | Dark Comedy/Crime-drama | 10 min. 08 sec. | 2016

 

Harvey Bender is an unusual mob enforcer- he hates killing, so he tells jokes instead. For Harvey, his job is simply to silence you, and if he can make you laugh through a few bruises or talk things over a warm beverage, that's okay. Harvey's methodology is challenged when he has to silence Brian, a family-man who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Born and raised in the suburbs of Kansas City, Kansas, Michael Wolfe spent his time fascinated with movies and television shows that transported him far away to different worlds and characters. He recently completed a B.F.A. in Film Production at Chapman University's Dodge College of Film & Media Arts in Orange, California with a minor in Television Showrunning, where he graduated a full year early in May 2017. He has worked in film and television development and production for several Hollywood companies, including Scott Rudin Productions, Groundswell Productions, Circle of Confusion, The Donners' Company, and Good Universe. He is a Fulbright Semi-Finalist, political junkie, Whovian, stand-up comedian wannabe, and a Starbucks Barista who makes a mean frappucino. When not directing, Michael works as a 1st Assistant Director. He can also be found drowning in his student loan debt or biking along the beach.

Film to me seems self-evidently collaborative. I’m not an auteur, I don’t work on auteur movies, I don’t want to be an auteur. The pleasure in it is the collaboration.”
