Though Michael is highly respected by his clients and within the film industry, O. Leonard Press, the founder of KET had this to say about his latest project. “Michael, your documentary about GSP is indeed a tour de force!!! Large as the screen was at the premiere, the video and message were infinitely larger, drawing the viewer almost physically into a fascinating and novel world of interactive learning. The film was greater even than its parts, a work of true artistry!!!” (See more Accolades)

Breeding’s career began in 1982, singing and interpreting Shaker music for the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill. In 1984, he created an in-house film department for the Village. Later, in 1992, he was promoted to Development Officer.

MBM distributes its programs via satellite to networks throughout the United States and in many foreign countries. “Our mission has been to showcase Kentucky to the world,” says Breeding. “We have so much to offer in Kentucky and presenting Kentucky’s assets in film is just one of the many creative ways we can show the world our unbridled spirit.”

In 2009, Breeding was commissioned by the Kentucky Humanities Council to film Our Lincoln: Kentucky’s Gift to the Nation at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. This DVD is now available through the Council.

For more than 30 years, Breeding’s work has been recognized and awarded for his unique style and ability to assemble and develop superior creative teams throughout the Commonwealth and nation.

Two years in the making, Breeding produced an in-flight entertainment film for British Airways. Destination Atlanta is a cool, hip approach to above-the-clouds entertainment and a good example of the many tourism films in Breeding‘s diverse portfolio. (See Destination Atlanta)

Michael produces two to three documentaries and many marketing films every two years. When asked about his favorite project, Breeding quickly turned to his hometown of Springfield, Kentucky for inspiration. For Springfield, it is the story of a covenant between two families, the Lincolns and the Hanks, and of a bond that would lay the foundation for a legacy that would change the course of Kentucky, of America and of world history forever.

Michael resides in Lexington, Kentucky. He attended UK having received a full tuition scholarship in vocal performance. He later transferred to Asbury and finished his college career at EKU with a degree in Radio, Television & Film.

Project BLACK PATCH

Tobacco farming is often as cultural as it is economic. It is a tradition going back generations, bonding families to their land and to each other. It is a practiced art form, a true craft. It is a learned skill and trade—taught by one generation and acquired by the next. Sharing the complexities of the craft with those who are unfamiliar is not an easy task; Farming in the Black Patch tells this marvelous story.

Project CASSIUS M. CLAY

Cassius Marcellus Clay: An Audacious American portrays an 85-year-old Clay writing his autobiography—recollecting vividly the triumphs and tragedies of his life, sparing neither himself, family, friends nor enemies. Clay takes the viewer with him as he purposely strides through the 19th-century landscape of bitter politics and duels, palatial homes and beautiful women, slavery and the Civil War and a diplomatic mission precipitating the purchase of Alaska, leaving the lasting imprint of his fiery emancipationist personality in his wake. An Audacious American had its premiere at The Kentucky Theatre and on KET in 2012.

Project NASCIO

Michael Breeding MEDIA has produced ten films for The National Association of Chief Information Officers (NASCIO). These films were highly complex and demonstrate our ability to manage large projects incorporating ideas and concepts from many partners while producing programs that were both entertaining and informative. All of the NASCIO films were premiered at an annual NASCIO conference and some were used at Congressional Hearings in Washington.
