Michael LaHaie is that rare producer, director, and editor who has somehow managed to straddle the worlds of narrative and documentary, comedy and drama, production and post.
As an editor, Michael collaborated on George Ratliff’s acclaimed documentary
, which premiered at the Toronto Film festival and has become something of a cult classic. He also worked with Chris Eigeman on his feature debut
Turn the River
, starring Famke Janssen and Rip Torn (nominated for an Indie Spirit Award in 2009). He teamed up with George Ratliff for a second time on the feature
, which starred Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris, and Pierce Brosnan and premiered at the Sundance film festival. Michael's television credits also run the scripted-to-unscripted gamut, from multiple seasons of Bravo's landmark reality series
Queer Eye For The Straight Guy
to the acclaimed Adult Swim scripted comedy
. At Left/Right, Michael has worked on many different productions, most notably serving as Co-Executive Producer and showrunner on seasons one and two of our beloved series
Small Town Security
Michael's background as an editor, his ability to layer stories with unexpected moments and surprises, and his singular focus on understanding and empathizing with protagonists and antagonists alike are the key elements that bind his work together. He also suffers from an acute addiction to fine dining and live music, which requires constant income to support the habit.
