Storyline

Michael Half-Life is the super-hero identity of Michael Hafman, a milquetoast office worker, who may or may not be real, may or may not have super-powers, and enjoys dressing in contrast. One of the world's most esoteric heroes, through the course of his mundane day he will reflect on life, catch the eye of his future wife, and save the world from blowing up. Not necessarily in that order. Shot over the course of 15 years on a variety of formats, the film is a merging of different styles that creates one surreal adventure. Written by David Maddox

Michael Half Life is a brief look at the inner life of Michael Halfman that takes the viewer from the mundane corporate world through a throwback science fiction/super hero adventure and back to everyday life all in the span of a few short minutes. This film speaks to the inner desires of us all while at the same time reminding us of the joys that can be found in our regular lives. Director David Maddox paid attention to the smallest details while creating scenes over the course of fifteen years, which allows the viewer a sense of authenticity in the age progression of the characters. I enjoyed watching this film with my elementary aged boys and hope to see more films by this director in the future.
