Christmas Eve – Trailer

So I directed an awesome and fun short film last year called Christmas Eve. It is going to be released soon and we made a trailer for it. Most of you know I focus a LOT on horror - but I am glad to introduce my audience to a different side of myself as a filmmaker. This is a sweet and poignant film, written and starring my dear friend Jenna Nolen. In fact, this is the film we met on - and we have been making films ever since then Check out more on the film here: https://michaelcoulombe.com/projects/christmas-eve/

During the quarantine my YouTube page was very active. I was also posting a lot about trying to stay focused [and sane] during the pandemic - mostly in the early stages of the quarantine when everything was so new for us. We had to find a way to adapt. Well during that time I hit 1000 subscribers on YouTube, which means I now have the Community tab. This is just a fun place in which to interact with my audience.

FILA Photo Shoot – BTS

Was lucky enough to do an awesome photo sponsored by FILA Tennis with models Troy Akin and Cale Hammond. During the photo shoot we did an awesome BTS [behind the scenes] video showing the athletes playing tennis in the outfits. These outfits were awesome and the photos turned out amazing! Check out the video below directed by me and shot/edited by Ken O'Donnell. https://youtu.be/jV9dcKBdHw8 Please Like and Subscribe https://michaelcoulombe.com/photography/fila-tennis-photo-shoot/

BLM Photo Shoot

We are in the middle of the most important movement of our country - probably our lifetime. On this Independence Day, we need to ensure that all people are free from hate and oppression. Did a photo shoot for Black Lives Matter with model Candice Callins this weekend in Hollywood, California. I also attended my first Black Lives Matter protest yesterday in Tujunga, California. It was amazing to be there with everyone. Nobody's free until we're all freeFannie Lou Hamer

Black Lives Matter

On July 3, 2020 I attended by first protest for Black Lives Matter. I would not consider myself a photo journalist but my friend Candice Callins asked me to come and I wanted to be a part of something that was historical - as this issue is one of the biggest movements of 2020 - if not in my lifetime. There were some anti-protesters, naturally, who just drive by several times waving American flags and yelling derogatory slang at the crowd but overall it was amazing to see how the majority of people be supportive. It was amazing to see so many white and latino people among the crowd as well. Regardless of what people think - there is definitely a shift in the view of Black Americans in this country...and as we head into Independence day tomorrow here in the Unites States it will be gr...

My Eyes – the poem

My Eyes Can you see my eyes through the haze and smoke?       The eyes that welcome friends?       The eyes that comfort the weak? The eyes that stare back at you with   stunned, unashamed anguish? Can you count the times I have acknowledged your existence? Perhaps as many times as you have shunned mine. When was the last time you shook my hand, even if it was extended?        Or exchanged a word?   Or looked into my eyes – deep into my eyes?           These eyes that welcomed friends?           These eyes that comforted the weak?    &...
