Michael R. Williams
Line Producer / UPM
Having Line-Produced and Production Managed numerous feature films over the past decade, Michael R. Williams has experience in nearly every form of production. His resume includes low budget studio features, independent films, animation and digital media. Williams got his start as an intern at Paramount Pictures after graduating from Loyola Marymount University with a BA in Film Production. He worked his way up from Production Assistant to Producer, working as a cinematographer, editor and assistant director along the way. During this time, he worked under the tutelage of many old-school producers where Williams learned the ropes of budgeting and scheduling feature films. Michael actually produced his first short film when he was still in high school, winning a state film award his first time out of the gate. Williams has worked with directors such as Adam Goldberg, Zach Braff, John Waters, Larry Clark, Jonas Åkerlund, Abel Ferrara, Don Murphy, Charles Winkler and Alejandro González Iñárritu.
