Michael Seater has quickly become one of the busiest director/producers working in Canada. In 2012 he produced and directed three short films and is ecstatic that the first short he took out to the masses, SLY CAD, was part of Telefilm’s Not Short on Talent program during the Cannes International Film festival 2014. Soon after, Michael released his first feature film, People Hold On, in theatres across Canada, which has been met with rave reviews and was nominated for CSA. Hi sophmore feature Sadie's Last Days on Earth had a theatrical release across North America and was then scooped up by Netflix. Over the last two years Michael’s work has explored how narrative storytelling can intersect with brands through shortform series such as Upstairs Amy (Walmart/Interac), Emerald Code (Ubisoft/Canada 2067) and in the last year has directed and produced three major campaigns for Holt Renfrew.
Michael has long been an integral piece in the fabric of the Canadian film industry. He has been nominated five times and won a Gemini once, won LA’s Young Artist Award and was named one of the 2009 HOLLYWOOD REPORTER’S Next Generation Stars of International TV. Michael has amassed an enviable list of leading acting roles such as the titular character in the international hit series Life with Derek as well as starring in countless other series including Bomb Girls, 18 to Life and The Wedding Planners, to name a few.
