Emmanuel Shiu, REDBOT
"Mike handled the score for my film like the consummate professional that he is. Not only did he meet my expectations, he surpassed them. The score fits perfectly with my vision of the film. I am new to scoring but Mike was patient and walked me through the process and helped shape the score into something I could only imagine it to be. I hope we will be working on many more films in the future."
William Hellmuth, Hellmuth Arts
"Working with Michael was an experience that exceeded expectations (which were already quite high), from beginning to end. Mike brings such a deep passion to his work, constantly taking initiative to go above and beyond. He's a composer that focuses on the deeper meaning behind everything, and as a director, I find that kind of collaboration extremely valuable. I can't wait to work with him again!"
Francesco Giannini, Franky Films
"It was a tremendous pleasure working with Michael. I would say one of the best experiences of my production career as a director, producer. His work ethic, commitment, and passion for his work made the experience exceptional. He is extremely talented and I hope to work with him on many more projects to come. He brought so much to our film and would not be what it is today without his touch!"
Stephanie Oustalet, Actor/Director
"Michael was very kind and encouraging from the moment I met him. He puts so much meticulous detail and care into his work. It feels like the music is an extension of himself and I am proud to have him be a part of my story."
Brian Page, Thought Axis, Inc
Michael was great to work with! He's a very talented composer and brought this project in on time and on budget. I'd definitely recommend working with him to anyone who's considering doing so.
Kyle Kleege, Dirty Sweeter Productions
Working with Michael was one of the best experiences I’ve had. Absolutely professional, he would keep me updated constantly on his progress and he would stick to any deadlines set. The best thing is that while working fast the music he would turn in would be incredible. He would sit down and focus on the deeper meaning of the project. What he ended up turning in was better than I could have expected. I will definitely be using him again for future collaborations.
Carlos Manuel Plasencia, Albaluz Films
Michael is an absolute pleasure to work with. A true professional and an amazing composer—that I'm sure we will see working on big Hollywood movies very soon—who is extremely talented and someone that is not just a great listener but also someone with an acute insight into what your film needs. I thoroughly enjoyed working and collaborating with Michael as I witnessed how he meticulously shaped and created an amazing score that truly elevated my film to a whole new level. I highly HIGHLY recommend Michael and I look forward to working with him again. That is if he is not working on some big-budget sci-fi Hollywood movie! :) Have no fear, your film is in good hands. Cheers.
Ryan Metcalf, REM Static
Michael was an absolute godsend. Rarely do I meet other creatives who are as passionate, talented, and collaborative. I simply could not imagine our film without his score. I can't wait to work with him again!
Jesus Pasos, Spektre Studios
Michael Vignola is on another level of professionalism and creativeness. The process was so smooth and great. We went step by step on exactly how I wanted the score to sound. He delivered samples before going deep into the score and then delivered, excellence! Definitely going to work with Mr. Vignola again.
Lee Calleja, KingKill Productions
Michael has been fantastic during our collaboration, he has been essential in help telling our story and bringing the emotion and heart to our film. Michael understood my intentions for the film and elevated it with a keen ear and understanding of the emotion and purpose of music within the film. He blew me away with every piece of music and he was a very good listener with any notes or comments I had along the way. He has an immense skill and creative ability to adapt to changes in edits and take my intentions and expand them. He always genuinely wants what is best for the film and goes out of his way to make that happen. I would highly recommend Michael and I look forward to future collaborations."
Carlos Garcia Jr., Praxedis Pictures
Collaborating with Michael was such a blast! Even though we live thousands of miles from each other, anytime we would connect through a zoom call, it was like we were in the same room. Michael is an expert but he also listens to you, which made working with him a smooth collaboration. His instincts are spot on!
Simeon Quarrie, Founder of Vivida
It has been a privilege to work with Michael Vignola on two key VR projects and 3D animations. Michael was selected because of his ability to combine both natural and digital sounds to drive story. As a Director and as a team, we are extremely particular about each creative component on the projects we embark on. Michael interpreted the brief and immediately delivered. He got two simultaneous projects right, the first time. The project has been used by Sky and Barclays with more organizations to come. We are proud to have Michael as part of team VIVIDA and our storytelling DNA.
Velton J Lishke, of V-Pac Productions
Absolutely fantastic experience working with Michael, he has a complete understanding of exactly what we were looking for and delivered it ahead of time, he has made this whole side of post-production completely stress-free and delivered work much higher than our expectations, I highly recommend.
Alex Alessi, of Everything’s Gone, LLC.
Michael’s work on my Feature film "When Everything’s Gone" was truly captivating. The final product accompanies the film perfectly and elevates moments with strong themes and emotional beats hitting perfectly throughout the piece. It was so easy to collaborate with Michael and convey my direction and vision to him, while he brought new and exciting ideas to the score that I’d never have imagined. He’s a master of his craft!
Aaron Falvey of Falvation Films
Working with Michael was a distinct pleasure. His professionalism during the music composition phase was second to none! He worked incredibly hard, working to a very short deadline and he delivered! Michael's communication is excellent and he makes you feel more than comfortable throughout the creative process, talking on a level you understand. The end track Michael composed is incredible and I have no doubt his efforts will be rewarded during the film festival circuit. If you have any doubts, DON'T! Michael is a true professional and he will work with you to get results that exceed your expectations!
Randi Sloane/Producer Bill Sorvino/Director of HRLK LLC in assoc with MorningStar Media
"Choosing a composer for your film is challenging. You want them to understand the tone of the film, the mood of the scenes & the vibes of the characters. Working with Michael made it so easy. We knew he was the professional for this stage of post-production but he was always open to hearing our ideas and suggestions. He composed such a beautiful score for our film and we are so grateful for his part in our project! Thanks Michael!"
Juhui Kwon of JuhuiMakesFilms
Michael is professional and easy to work with. He produced effortless yet elaborate music for my film, which is exactly what I wanted. I will work with him again!
Jamaal Green of M.G. Cinecraft
Collaborating with Michael Vignola was an amazing experience! Michael is a very talented and focused artist who works with you to understand your project at a DNA level and composes a wonderful soundscape that will bring your work to the next level. I would highly recommend any filmmaker or any other creative looking to add music to their project to work with Michael!
Mark Blitch of Code Red Pictures
As a director, I have always been looking for a composer that I can form a shorthand with. I found that with Michael Vignola. He and I were on the same page creatively from the first conversation. Polite, professional, and incredibly talented, I count it as a privilege to work with him, and hope to continue to do so!
Matt Rosenblatt, Black Rose
Working with Michael is as smooth as a process as one can hope it to be. From start to finish he upholds an efficiency and professionalism that you wish everyone in the industry carried themselves with. He listens for what you want and has ideas of his own. It felt like a perfect collaboration working with him. If you're looking for a composer I strongly suggest going Michael's direction.
Mitch Mcleod, Absentia Pictures
"Michael was an absolute pleasure to work with. With his multi-faceted range and keen attention to detail, he is undoubtedly the person to go with to give your film that extra spark. His work went above and beyond what I could have imagined beforehand and elevated my film to an entirely new level. Hats off to this gentleman."
Joseph Spector, Spector Films
If you are looking for a well organized, and very talented composer to help your project come alive in all the ways it probably isn’t. Check out Michael Vignola's music. Michael has scored my last two film projects The Sleeping Dog and Sonny Vicious. Looking forward to the next one with him. He gives me confidence knowing I will have a great score and a better film because of it
William David Glenn IV, Lindsey Productions
Michael kicks ass! A great collaborator. Not only did he clearly understand my ideas for the music for my film, but he brought his own to the table and elevated the work overall. Knowledgeable and experienced. Smooth handling all the way through post. Highly recommend.
Brian Quintero, Dead Mariachi Films
Michael Vignola is a great collaborator and truly loves his craft. His versatile range allows you to mesh new, creative ideas!
Immanuel Baldwin, Exist Digitally
Michael is an exceptional human being to work with. He made the process of building the score and soundscape from the ground up very easy and memorable for me. I would trust him with any project I worked on. Michael not only made the experience fantastic, but he also understands filmmaking which made the director, composer relationship ten times better.
Richard Mattka, Render 51
Michael is a rare talent in composing and sound design. His ability to tell stories and communicate emotion through music is incredible. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him on my Video Game 'Lights in the Sky', and can't wait to team up again!
Adam Williamson, We Know Motion
It was a real pleasure to work with Mike. I feel like we hit it off right away and were on the same page from the very start. He was super easy to work with and I felt like he was personally invested in delivering a quality piece that we could all be proud of. I was impressed not only by what he was able to create for us but also how fluid and easy he made the entire process. When you can find a guy like Mike who “wow’s" your clients and delivers on time and on budget, you’ve found something pretty special. I definitely look forward to working with Mike on future projects!
Carlos Toro, of Steer Films
This is who you hope to work with when you've got a strong vision for a project. Michael will elevate that feeling that you're hoping to communicate and amplify it.
Patrick Moreau, of Muse Storytelling,
Mike, Thank you for putting such care and thought into your score for Team Okinawa's film. Your devotion to the project really comes through, and your score perfectly conveys everything that the team was hoping to - and more! Thank you, for your brilliant efforts! All the Best, Gina, Patrick, Team Okinawa, and the rest of the Muse Team.
Danny Cotton, Fabrication Films
Working with Michael on my feature film project "No More Lights in the Sky" was an absolute pleasure. He had great communication throughout the whole Post Production stage and was excited to discuss new ideas and aspects to further the product. The music he created was utterly amazing and he knew exactly how to capture the mood and tone required for the film, enhancing it to new levels. I can recommend Michael to anyone, and will be definitely be working with him again in the future.
Phillip Shvartsman, PHILM
Quality work, good communication, and helped explain anything I was unclear about. Very pleasant experience.
David Fodrek, Heroa Films
We had the pleasure of working with Michael while developing a concept for a feature film. Michael went above and beyond in every area. He not only had great ideas but actually cared that the final product we got was as strong as possible. He was receptive to new ideas and made the experience collaborative. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to have an original composition for their work.
Richard Fleming, Saga Media
Fantastic experience working with Michael. He was highly intuitive to what our project needed without any direction. When we needed something specific, he listened carefully and would reiterate out points that standardized the language - making it easier for us to communicate EXACTLY what we want to get from him. That made my job easier, and the product was infinitely better because of it. Music is a hard thing to talk about; it's often subjective and dependent on taste. And soundtracks for movies can be hard to perfect: a lot of composers are too forceful, "on the nose," and ultimately end up producing an overt, melodramatic sound that turns off viewers. I found the experience of discussing different sound options with Michael to be fluid, easy, and precise. Vignola Music dramatically improved the flow and edit of my film, along with the emotional impact I wanted my audience to experience – with all the subtlety and subtext.
Austin Welch, Saga Media
First off, we will NEVER go back to stock music after seeing what Michael is capable of and how much it improved our final product. We were working on an extremely tight deadline; Michael was able to deliver stellar work ahead of schedule and within a price, we could afford. He maintained constant communication with us, was extremely easy to work with and brought a whole new level to our work we couldn't have found elsewhere. I highly recommend Michael and look forward to him being a consistent part of our team going forward.
Shannan L. Reeve, Beleeve Entertainment
From the moment I heard Michael Vignola's demo I knew he was the one who could create the perfect score to match the emotional tone of my film. What I didn't know was that in addition to being an extremely talented composer, he is also a remarkable businessman. It is a rare find when someone has the drive for business AND the talent to need such a drive. From the get-go Michael was extremely professional, keeping me in the loop as we determined the tone for the score. Not only was his music moving and elegant, he also delivered ahead of schedule. It was a joy to work with Vignola, and I look forward to working together in the future.
Michael is a very talented musician who understands the nuances of a scene. He is currently composing music for my series "A World of Worlds from Episode Two and beyond. It's a rare find to have a composer who can quickly understand what a director is looking for and heighten the emotional concept of a scene without much guidance. This is also a credit to his professionalism. Having Michael on this journey with me is exciting and I'm eager to see what's next.
Ebony Wilson, Midnight Crow Productions
Michael's work effortlessly gave life to my project. His talent is one that will, inevitably, hit the mainstream, and I'm honored to work with him.
Tom Glaser Writer and Producer of Full Heart Living
Working with Michael Vignola on the score for my first documentary, The Impact of Full Heart Living LIVE! was a dream. His work was stellar, setting the tone, underscoring important moments, and highlighting key themes. He was responsive, reliable, and prompt. Plus, he went above and beyond by helping the rest of the team get things done in a timely manner – a task I wasn’t able to fully manage myself! Truly, I couldn’t give Michael a higher recommendation.
Brendan O'Brien, Red Van Studio
"It's been a pleasure having Michael on-board, He has elevated the work to another level, really fantastic!."
Nick Conroy, NCCProductions Production
Michael Vignola brings sooo much emotional depth to the journey. He's a pro anyone is honored to be able to work with.
Tim Nolte, Bolder Video
It’s a pleasure working with Michael Vignola! Michael is an excellent collaborator, bringing creative ideas to the table, and taking rough ideas and feedback and turning them into something that fits the vision for the project and is truly moving. I am especially impressed with how quickly he composes and turns around revisions. I will definitely be working with him in the future!
Kyle Wigginton, Director, Writer, Producer
Vignola you are a genius. I loved every note and have nothing negative to say. You just added so much to the film it's insane.
Jake Estes, Director/Writer/Producer
Mike Vignola was an absolute pleasure to work with. After only one conversation he totally understood the feel and tone I wanted and I could not be happier with the results, which was delivered on time! I will most definitely be collaborating with him on my next project!
Timothy Parsons, Director/Producer
I'd like to say that Mike is not only a creative and unique composer but also someone who can understand and interpret the emotion of scene and film. He has a remarkable way of being able to capture the exact emotion needed for each project. Mike's score is one of the best parts of my film and wouldn't be the same story without it. Mike is easy to communicate with and understands exactly what specific scenes need, Before we even sit down to talk, he already has multiple creative ideas. He has a cinematic eye that will positively affect any film he is a part of.
David Pace, Director/Producer
