At 26, Michael Maxxis has established himself as an original and highly sought-after director of music videos. His vids are full of forceful, sometimes nightmarish imagery, captured with precise lighting, carefully chosen locations and lush color schemes. He's worked with the kick-ass LGBT band The Cliks, the Nu metal band P.O.D. and alt-rockers OURS, among others. He's traveled around the world, from Spain to the Salton Sea.
Originally from Canada, Maxxis's success story is about more than natural ability. It's also about finding a scene you're interested in, networking with people, following good advice and working at it until your fingers bleed. In other words, the path to success for just about any indie filmmaker.
