My name is Michael Orlando and I'm a professional screenwriter and filmmaker from Vancouver, Canada.
This year I've written and created an original one-hour drama named "Pipe Bomb", which has placed as a quarter-finalist in both the 2017 Sundance Episodic Story Labs and Final Draft Big Break competition, in the second round of the Austin Film Festival screenwriting competition, and is currently a semi-finalist in the Shore Scripts TV Pilot competition and quarter-finalist in the ScreenCraft Pilot Launch TV Script contest.
I also wrote a spec script for "The Last Man on Earth" which placed as a semi-finalist in the 2017 Austin Film Festival screenwriting competition.
My debut short film "The Yoga Bridge", which I wrote, directed, and produced premiered at the 2017 Oxford Film Festival, was nominated for a Golden Sheaf Award at the Yorkton Film Festival, and won Best Script at the UWPG Film Fest. The film has also screened in Austin and North Carolina festivals.
