Greetings and welcome. This site has been here in one form or another since 2007. Periodically I reorganize it and currently the way I’ve done that is to make it an author/producer site, with an attached blog.  I maintain it myself, so it’s direct, and personal, and not too fancy.

Please use the links on the sidebar to navigate to the various parts of the site.

You can reach me at michaeldsellers@gmail.com if you’d like to communicate.

I will leave my Official Bio as a starting point for exploring the site.


Michael Sellers graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Delaware in 1975, where he was a Rhodes Scholarship and Danforth Fellowship finalist. He went on to New York University Graduate Film School, then spent 10 years serving as an operations officer for the Central Intelligence Agency.   He was awarded the Intelligence Commendation Medal  in December 1989.  He returned to private life in 1990 and since then has worked as a writer, film-maker, and film distribution executive. His films have been selected for more than 100 film festivals and have won multiple awards. (For selected trailers and a complete filmography click here.)  In 2012 Sellers wrote John Carter and the Gods of Hollywood, a non-fiction account of the 100 year journey of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ A Princess of Mars from story to screen which achieved Amazon Best Seller status in its category.  In 2014 and early 2015, Sellers spent 11 months as an inmate at FCC Lompoc,  details of which are available upon request.  Since May 2015 he has been working as a sentencing advocate for criminal defendants.  Michael Sellers is married to Lorena Llevado Sellers and has four grown children, Patrick, Pilar, Kaitlyn, and Michelle.

    Hi Micheal, Hope all is well with you and your family? Wish we could have had more success with the Dolphin films, not sure why that is? Miss our conversations.
    Also, struggle with the lack of success with From Mexico With Love, both are relative today as in the past? I was a believer, yet paid the price!

    I would like to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing this website. I am hoping the same high-grade website post from you in the upcoming also. In fact your creative writing skills has encouraged me to get my own website now. Actually the blogging is spreading its wings rapidly. Your write up is a good example of it.

    Hello Michael,

    I wanted to add one comment to your John Carter saga.

    No one I know that was interested in John Carter wanted to see Andrew Stanton “Vision” of the story . . . we all wanted to see the E.B.R. version.

    That’s right, an Adult fantasy fiction on the big screen.

    Marching city? Blah

    Dragonfly airships? Blah

    Holy Thern that are “SUPERMEN”? Blah

    No saving of the planet atmosphere plant? Your kidding right . . .

    There could have been a great trilogy of films if they just did the first 3 books as written.

    Now that I would have paid for!

    Anyway, I enjoyed your thoughts on the subject.
