Michael Gunther is a producer, director and writer.
Gunther started out in feature films after a career as a commercials director in Europe that spanned almost a decade, and included collaborations with Hollywood A-listers such as Academy Award winning DP Russell Boyd (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, Liar Liar). He later turned his sights to documentary and feature films and started producing TV documentaries with his own company, among them a portrait of acclaimed painter Hans Falk, and a harrowing account of the devastating 1999 earthquake in Turkey. He wrote and directed his first feature film, The Honeytrap, starring acclaimed British actress Emily Lloyd in 2002.
He went on to produce a number of New York based indie features and prize winning shorts, working, amongst others, with Lisa Ray and Deborah Harry. Most recently he was co-producer for the feature film Anamorph (dir: Henry Miller, prod: Marissa Mazzola-McMahon for Kamala Films), starring Willem Dafoe, Scott Speedman, Peter Stormare and Clea DuVall, with renowned DP Fred Murphy (Mothman Prophecies, Secret Window, Auto Focus, RV), and production designer Jackson DeGovia (Die Hard I & III, Speed, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, The Stepford Wives).
In 2006, he set up New York based feature film production company Triboro Pictures with producing partner Sirad Balducchi.
