Amir Motlagh to direct feature Micro this summer :: Filmography & other work

CA based (i think somewhere near LA) talented & prolific DIY indie filmmaker/musician/actor Amir Motlagh (directed shorts Still Lover, My Break Ups into a Million Pieces, plays in the band Shanks and the Dreamers, stars in his & other's movies; see below for a longer list of work) is currently editing his first feature Whale. Amir also recently announced that he will be directing a new feature this year; a micro-budget feature called Micro - a comedy about a filmmaker who is making an ultra-low budget feature. I like movies about making movies, and I like most of Amir's movies that I've seen, so I am looking forward to checking out Micro.

I may have a tiny role to play in making Micro; will have more on that in early June.

Check out Amir's blog for updates on his projects.

I interviewed Amir in '05, read that interview here.

Read a more recent interview with Amir, from '06, here.

And here's that list of Amir's work that I mentioned on paragraph 1 (note - looks like this list was made prior to shooting Whale, so it is a little bit old, but still good re: Amir's earlier work):
