Head of Production
A Graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the New York University Graduate Film School, Michael Canzoniero is an accomplished director/producer with many award winning feature films and television shows under his belt. His latest epic Don Peyote starring Dan Fogler, Anne Hathaway and Josh Duhamel was distributed theatrically across the country in 2014. Earlier work includes the SXSW comedy The Marconi Bros starring Zoe Lister Jones, Jon Polito and Brendan Sexton III. Known for keeping his cool under the most stressful of productions including several outlandish reality shows which would have broken mere mortal souls, Canzoniero is a complete filmmaker who's worn practically every hat on a set but has only been in front of the camera once... twenty-six takes later... it didn't end well.
