Michael Marantz is a director and composer.

Through the challenges Michael has faced in life, he has learned to live with appreciation for every moment and makes films to share that perspective with others. He creates cinematic experiences that seamlessly intertwine story, visuals, and music in a profoundly beautiful way.

His goal: get to the core of human emotions and allow others to see the power of them to inspire positive change in the world. 

Michael splits his time in the mountains of Massachusetts and New York City, with his wife, Isabelle.   Together  they work on a project called Stories for Good.
