Michael has what every director wants: a keen eye, a listening ear, and a vivid and flexible imagination. He cares about accuracy, pursues tasks with joy, and is driven by the passion of a true craftsman. He will make your project better.

I’ve worked with Winters on several different occasions. He naturally has an eye for a creative shot. Watch the opening shot of our short, “Beg”, and see what I’m talking about. He continues to grow on every film we work on. The dude can hold a conversation too. Excited to work with him again in the future.
— Adam Henslee, actor/filmmaker (New York City)
He’s not only a creative hard worker but also humble. On one occasion he was editing our film but decided to come early to help where needed. When he realized the other spots were all handled he took it upon himself to keep the coffee pot full (the best person on set in my opinion). He also slammed out a banging edit which I believe got him nominated for an award. Having Winters on set is a pleasure each and every time.
— Kyle Wigginton, actor/filmmaker (New Orleans)
I've worked with Michael on a number of film projects, and he always brings his A-game. His passion for quality is inspiring. I'm always looking forward to the next project we can team up on.
