Update July 2013
So sorry for the lack of updates but between getting the last of her surgeries and finishing her short film...things just got busy!

A Dream on Fire has already been in several film festivals (Fort Meyers Beach Film Festival 2013, Cape Fear Film Festival 2013 where it was nominated in the Best Local Film category for the Wilmington Film Awards). Now submitted to festivals in multiple countries. Update for that are found on the films page and you can view the trailer on youtube. Michele has been booking some film roles, mostly short films but with some amazing film teams but she cannot give titles or details at this time. Like they often do in film and tv...they ask talent to keep their big mouths shut! All the news that is fit for print will be out soon! As for the tune she sang in the Arthur Newman, Golf Pro film (now released and details can be public) was the tune Better Than I written by Madison Bunting (guitar player ) for Michele and the Midnight Blues. It is now available on itunes, reverbnation and googleplay. More updates soon and it will be done more often!

Update June 2012,  Michele has produced, directed and edited her first documentary Zombie Wrangler, recently nominated for Best Regional Film at the 2012 Cape fear Independent Film Festival. Editing was a skill she taught herself while she was mending from several medical issues. She recently worked on the film Arthur Newman, Golf Pro as a lounge singer thanks to a submission of her performance with her band Michele and the Midnight Blues. Many know she is not able to sing on a regular basis at this time but was lucky enough that the song selection was in a key she felt comfort in. Currently she is in pre-production of a serious short film A Dream On Fire that she will produce and direct this fall. Meanwhile she prepares to direct The Dixie Swim Club for Big Dawg Productions at The Cape fear Playhouse.
