My name is Michael Orlando and I'm a professional screenwriter and filmmaker from Vancouver, Canada.
Over the past year I've written and created an original one-hour drama named "Pipe Bomb", which was recently featured by The Black List, recently made the finals of the Oaxaca FilmFest screenwriting comptetion, placed as a semi-finalist in both the 2017 ScreenCraft Pilot Launch TV and Shore Scripts TV Pilot competitions, and placed as a quarter-finalist in the Austin Film Festival, Sundance Episodic Story Labs, and Final Draft Big Break screenwriting competitions.
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 also screened at the Austin and North Carolina LGBTQ film festivals.
