Mike Gowen - Producer


Michael has been working in the film industry since 2009 on projects such as The Walking Dead, The Help, Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Mockingjay.


He has been influenced heavily by the cult-classics of Quentin Tarantino, David Fincher, and other filmmakers focused on cinema that captivates and surprises audiences with tales that rarely conclude with a 'happily ever after'. He brings this enthusiasm for shaping great stories alive in the gritty, sci-fi twister Restitution.


He is currently working in the Atlanta area on major studio features, television, and independently developed projects.
