Autumn 2017

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Brass Eye, the series Michael directed between 1995 & 1997.

To mark the occasion he has made a 60min film, made up from unseen and never broadcast material from his personal archive. ‘Oxide Ghosts: The Brass Eye Tapes’ has the blessing of both Chris Morris & Ted Maul and  premiered at the Pilot Light TV festival in May 2017. The film will only be shown at live events and we are currently in discussion with independent cinemas across the country to arrange a series of screenings and Q&As.

'[Oxide Ghosts] offers a well-judged and very rare insight into [Brass Eye’s] making, encapsulating the fun and covert excitement that went on while the project was still under wraps, before all the legal wrangling kicked in. If you're an admirer of the show and the opportunity should arise for you to see Oxide Ghosts, have some self re-cocking-spect and do so without hesitation' - Chortle 

Michael’s video art, past and present, has now found a new home. Here Comes Everybody is an American experimental cable TV show, broadcasting in Los Angeles, Berkley, Portland Seattle & Chicago. The shows can also be viewed on youtube . Look out for early Super 8 and U-Matic videotape work in episode 10 and 11 and a more recent film in episode 12.
