I’ve had the pleasure of working for Michael E. Berg as his post sound editor on three projects including his short film “S3RIAL”. I recommend Michael to anyone looking for a Director who understands the demands of the roll, pays special attention and care to his talent and crews, and every detail of the project from beginning to end. Michael has always paid extra attention to every detail in each step of the shoot to ensure the best possible experience and outcome for the next stage of production and post. From the moment of development, Michael has a sincere desire to learn and achieve what it’s going to take in each roll of the filmmaking and post production to create a quality film. Something which always impresses me is when a director or showrunner hires their post production crew at the top of the show in pre-production, which is something Michael did on the shows he hired me to work on. This is a critical decision that normally happens only on the big budget production films. This allows the production and post production crews to collaborate for what each needs from the other, to the most positive of results not only for the crews, but most importantly, the film itself.
This is clearly evident in Michael’s award winning short film “S3RIAL”. Michael Berg has the passion and those rare instincts and qualities that make great directors successful. I hope for the chance to work again as his sound editor on upcoming projects and in the future. Given the opportunity, I believe we will be seeing many more films and streaming productions of award-winning caliber in the future from Michael E. Berg.
