Michael Sterling was born and raised in Austin, Texas. He entered the world with a creative eye and fast-thinking thought process. He has always been bent on telling compelling stories through the use of vivid imagery, which is why many in the entertainment business know his talent can’t be harnessed to Texas alone for much longer. Sterling’s filmmaking signature is to afford the audience an emotional connection using well-planned techniques that harmoniously bring together a script and the unsaid word.
He also implements the use of character reactions, location settings, and more.
As a child, Michael spent his time working in the sketch form of art and embracing music. He began recording music for local and national artists, making a name for himself in his hometown. After developing and cutting his first music video, other musicians began to request his help with their own videos. It was during this time that Michael discovered his talent for directing and producing. In fact, he directed music videos for Texas’ own Lil’ Flip.
As Sterling evolved in life, Michael made the daring transition into traditional filmmaking. His "open vision to art" has afforded him with an opportunity to consider a vast array of projects. His focus is to develop movies that deliver a positive message.
Michael’s primary goal is to make an impact within the film industry by making audiences think about cause, reaction, and consequences when watching a movie
His life’s motto is “Get Get Get It”...
