Michael Medoway is an American director and photographer. His work floats between slice-of-life, documentary-style realism to polished, cinematic narrative. 

Michael started in advertising as a copy writer for feature films. His work can be seen on posters for “Sideways”, "A.I.” and “The Road.”

Living in Japan for six years, he worked as a translator and coordinator for commercials in the Japanese market and continues to work in the Japanese market today.

Michael’s recent film “El Gallo” was an official selection of DOC NYC 2018 and won Best Short Documentary at the Rome Independent Cinema Festival.

Michael loves, in no particular order: architecture, basketball, coffee, Haruki Murakami, running, red wine and good company.
