X-MEN 3: THE LAST STAND
What I’m looking For:
ACTION ADVENTURE, COMEDY, HORROR, THRILLER, FANTASY, DRAMA, SCI-FI, ANIMATION, and BIOGRAPHICAL content in the FEATURE FILM and SCRIPTED TV/MINISERIES, and TV MOVIE OF THE WEEK format.
Michael Chamoy is a former development executive and television writer. He has extensive experience working on superhero and sci-fi properties and credits his success on an understanding of story structure and refined commercial taste.
Through fifteen years of experience working in Hollywood, Michael has become a sought after script consultant for writers and producers on their material. He is currently developing a science fiction TV show with a producer at Warner Bros and adapting an eco-conscious espionage novel for the screen by a British novelist.
Michael was integral in shaping the pilot and direction for the Alphas TV series. Michael’s involvement with Alphas continued after it was set up at Syfy Channel when he joined the writing staff for both seasons, getting credit for writing the episodes “A Short Time in Paradise” starring Garret Dillahunt and “Alphaville” featuring Summer Glau.
Michael’s involvement with Alphas was a natural outgrowth from his work on comic-book adaptations and other genre stories for screenwriter Zak Penn. Their collaboration began on X-Men 3: The Last Stand and included Marvel properties like The Incredible Hulk and The Avengers.
Zak hired Michael because of his commercial instincts and story-sense, which came from years working as a script consultant for CAA, Rat Entertainment, Shady Acres and various managers and independent firms. As a consultant, Michael read, wrote coverage and extensive notes for over seven hundred scripts or other submissions.
In between working as a script consultant, Michael explored the producing side of the business, starting at Michael Douglas’ Furthur Films. At Furthur, Michael participated in the development of One Night at McCools, Swimfan and Don’t Say a Word. Soon after, Michael became the director of development for Leanna Creel’s Anomaly Productions. At Anomaly, Michael set up a dozen indie projects with financiers, talent and directors as well as worked with a stable of writers to help them develop their craft.
Michael initially moved to Los Angeles after optioning a horror screenplay he wrote, but when the project went into turnaround he transitioned to the Story Department at CAA. Once at the agency, he managed script submissions, client script coverage and helped build a database consolidating all open assignments around town.
Michael’s long and varied experiences in Hollywood have given him a unique perspective on what makes a good story, as well as what elements best attract top talent and representation to material. He hopes his work at Voyage Media will allow him to continue assisting other writers and producers to optimize their projects so that they reach their maximum creative potential.
