Michael Lukk Litwak spent his youth making mischief in Los Angeles, California. He graduated early from high school and escaped to New York City where he enrolled in the Film and TV program at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.

As a Freshman he founded The Tisch 48-Hour Film Festival and was the cinematographer on a feature documentary in Istanbul, Turkey. As a sophomore he built a miniature floating city for The Glue King & His Castle and was the cinematographer on short documentary that filmed in Todos Santos, Guatemala.

He then flew to Prague in the Czech Republic to study at the prestigious Film Academy (FAMU) where he proceeded to hang off the side of a speeding garbage truck to film FRENCH QUESADILLAS, which landed an official selection at the Seattle International Film Festival and Palm Springs International Shortsfest, in addition to numerous film festivals across the US.

After living in Madrid for a semester, Michael returned to New York City to build a giant glowing cardboard spaceship in his basement for Interstellar Intercourse: A Space-Sex Odyssey. Interstellar clinched the Audience Award at Tisch 48-2012, was an official selection at Raindance 2012 and continues to play the festival circuit.

"The Life and Death of Tommy Chaos and Stacey Danger" is Michael’s latest and greatest film and will take the world by storm when it is completed in August.

He has plans to conquer the world as soon as he figures out how to turn his surplus of compassion and empathy into some sort of explosive death-ray chainsaw laser.
