About The Double Take

The Double Take are two movie lovers from the opposite sides of the globe.

Michael is a Graphic Designer from Bristol, England, who is currently living in New Plymouth, New Zealand. As a young teenager Michael was introduced to 70’s – 90’s classics, ranging from horror to western, and as he got older he has developed a passion for film. From the age of around twelve he loved the Spielberg classic Jaws, owning a 20th anniversary VHS copy and became his favourite movie. A fictional movie festival celebrating the works of Martin Scorsese became the subject of his final project at university, and since this time he has explored a plethora of films and developed a love for all things Scorsese, Fincher, Aronofsky, Hitchcock and so many more.
