I’m Michael Chwastiak. I’m a director, producer, and professional actor, as well as the co-founder of Boots On The Moon Media. I’m also one of the curators and board members of the Routes to Roots Film Festival.

I’ve produced a wide variety of projects including global commercials, branded content, movie and television series pitches, music videos, short films and digital seriesHere are some of my project highlights, including work with Christopher Plummer, the Beach Boys, Sheila McCarthy, and more.

I’ve also been a digital pioneer since 1997, first starting a website design company, then turning to web publishing, creating the expert advice site The Sideroad.

Video on social media is my main focus now, although I still consult on, and help develop pitches for digital series, TV shows and independent film.
