Michael Normand is a screenwriter, director, and founder of Film Nouveau. He was born in Falkirk, Scotland, his grandfather having settled there from Poland. Michael studied business & economics at Glasgow Caledonian University before moving to London in the mid-1980s to pursue a career in publishing. By the late 1980s he was also on the London stand up circuit (under the name Finlay Michaels), and was writing comedy for TV and radio. In 1993 he co-wrote (with Gary Sinyor) the landmark British comedy Leon the Pig Farmer. He then wrote and co-directed (with Rob Sherwin) the American comedy Dirty Laundry . After a longer-than-planned bout of script-doctoring, Michael wrote co-produced and directed Joe Smeal's Wheels, a docu-drama shot on the streets of Glasgow. He has most recently written, produced and directed the 2012 Olympics-inspired mockumentary Blisters for Blighty.
