Filmmaker/publisher Michael Wiese was born in Champaign, went to Uni High, and was a cub photographer for the News-Gazette.

In San Francisco, he produced HARDWARE WARS, a popular short film parody of STAR WARS, and DOLPHIN, a PBS Special on interspecies communication. Later, at Vestron Video, Wiese oversaw the production and/or acquisition of over 300 videos including programs from The Beach Boys, Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, and Arnold Palmer, and also launched the National Geographic Video series.

Today, he oversees Michael Wiese Productions with offices in LA and Seattle from a 200-year-old stone cottage in Cornwall, England. The company publishes more than 80 filmmaking books that are used by film professionals and students in more than 600 film schools worldwide.

Wiese will show some sequences from his new digital documentary shot in Tibet, THE SACRED SITES OF THE DALI LAMAS, and discuss the principles for producing successful media.

This will be only one of two U.S. appearances this year. No pre-registration is necessary. Just show up!
