    About me

    A Production Manager/Producer/LP/DoP ready to take your production, big or small, and make it a reality.

    I have worked on productions in Afghanistan while getting shot at by Taliban and also blown up by special effects and stunt departments right in my backyard. Getting the shot, behind or in front of the camera, is my specialty.

    LA based, but anywhere you need me.


    Michael Caradonna is an entertainment industry veteran with over 23 years experience in all levels of production. He began his career in front of the camera as an actor and stuntman, quickly moving behind the camera where his real talent was developed.

    Beginning as a development executive for the independent production house Cine Grande, Michael learned right away what it takes to get a script produced.

    In 2000, Michael formed the company Mystic Entertainment, producing and directing music videos, short films, and commercials.

    In 2010, he spent 6 weeks as a producer and DP for a documentary shot in Afghanistan shooting war footage while embedded with the US Army in the eastern part of the country.

    Michael's productions have been in film festivals all over the world. His most recent credits include the feature film 'Emerald Run', The Discovery ID series Evil Lives Here, the MavTV series American Built and the short films The Horror-able Day and Imagination of Young.

    Michael and his company, Action On Camera, just wrapped the feature film Blood From Stone and are in development on 2 projects - These Woods and Brother's Keeper.
