MICHAEL SALOMON

Salomon began his career as a documentary film editor on several award-winning PBS Specials and soon began editing and post-producing music-oriented Event Programming and Television Specials for NBC, CBS, HBO, SHOWTIME, VH1, A&E and CMT. Salomon also lent his editorial talents to well over 200 music videos for pop luminaries such as Madonna, Janet Jackson, Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Ozzy Osbourne, Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Peter Gabriel and Whitney Houston.

Michael put on his directing cap for the first time to helm Metallica's classic debut video, "ONE", which was nominated for an MTV Video Award. His subsequent concert film for the band became part of "BINGE AND PURGE", one of the highest selling box sets of all time (15x Platinum). Michael has well over 250 music videos under his belt and has created more than a dozen one-hour documentary/performance specials for CMT (Country Music Television).

Michael recently directed his first feature film, "BEER FOR MY HORSES", a comedy written by and co-starring Toby Keith.

Salomon also has a burgeoning commercial career revving up and has created a series of spots for FORD, DR. PEPPER, WALMART, MCI and MARY KAY COSMETICS as well as several CD/DVD television ads for multiple music artists.

Salomon has been nominated for and/or won over 75 prestigious awards (Emmy, People's Choice, Billboard, Clio, MTV, CMT, ACM, CMA)…and counting.

With few exceptions, Michael edits and post-produces almost all of the material he creates as a director.
