Contacting Michael W. Dean.

If you must contact me, post a comment below and I’ll be in touch if I feel like it.

I like an attaboy as much as the next guy. But it you’re writing to tell me one of my books, albums or movies is great, why not review it on Amazon or on your blog, then send me the link along with your note. That helps both of us.

  1. Hi.
    I’m a producer of FAN, a radio show in Argentina.

    We’d love to interview you via Skype about your work.

    Are you interested?

    These are some international intervews that we already did:


  2. Whats up Mike! My name is Cary Robinson but you can call me Tazflcn(taz-falcon) I am an alumni from $30FilmSchool. I love your book. I feel this book was made for me because I been “taken the vow of poverty for my art” before I even read this book. The reason I took the vow before the book because I feel that I am destined for greatness because of my art & if I don’t get the results I am looking for I keep going. I know somewhere in this universe I impacted somebody with my art, drive, ambition, & my cunning wits. Right now my team is working on a DVD & we in post production stage. Also, I try starting a “gofundme” account to cover art work, promotion, dvd packaging, shipping, touring, & etc. but no luck. Any advice? If you have any words of encouragement outside of the $30Film School book? Thank you for the book .

    P.S.I planted some special trees since after I read the

    Hey, the Slish album (that weird red cassette) was gifted to me from a friend that knew someone in the band. Anyway, it was probably one of my two favorite albums. Is there any way or any place to get a copy of it nowadays?

  4. Phil Wormuth

    Michael –

    I must contact you… with good news and I hope you feel like replying. I would be remiss if I didn’t thank you (along with Norman Buck, and Tony Y.) for ushering me into the world of poetry over 35 years ago. My tenure with you and members of “The Armless Children” (circa 1982) was transformational. My recently published poetry anthology “Venus Remembered and Other Poems, by Phil Wormuth” is evidence of your expert DIY/punk ethos tutelage. You are dearly remembered in the acknowledgements. I would like to forward you a copy – please advise.

    You are amazing and I want your kittens.

  6. Hey Sir!
    Hello from the wild coyote covered Echo Park.

  7. Mr. Deen,

    I am the pastor of a presently small church plant in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I discovered you on the Apple TV machine and listen to the show every morning I can, my wife also enjoys the shows, which says more than you can imagine. I have found a handful of people in our small area are home bound and would listen to the Sunday services if we live streamed them and hung them on our website afterwards.

    I immediately thought of you, as you love to talk gear and how to set up streaming content. I preach in a mobile manner, not staying behind the podium, so a static microphone would not be a good option for the preaching, but might work for the singing of the church if it would pick up everyone else. What do I need to buy as I am in the process of applying for a grant from the North American Mission Board.

    I think I will need a face/throat mic, some kind of software program, an editing program, and perhaps a recording device of one form or another. I am not super tech savvy, but I have a really good friend in Washington State that can talk me through most stuff. I will be making the purchases based on the cost and if I qualify for the grant from NAMB.

    I have a Macbook Pro at the facility so whatever software/hardware you recommend will have to be compatible with that.

    PS Why don’t you have a PO Box or something like that to receive money at? My wife has OK’d me sending you guys some small amounts of money when I get them because I support what you are doing. I just cannot figure out hw to get it to you. I have considered just ordering buttons. If possible I would like to send you a small check every now and then though. While I am fighting for peoples spiritual lives, you are fighting for their physical ones and both messages work together.

    Thank you,

    Hi Michael, My name is Tim Lydon and I just wanted to reach out and thank you for writing the book $30 film school. I just finished reading it with great interest. The ‘Focus” section in the Closing Arguments chapter really hit home. It was as if I had to read all those things at this time to make the film I want to make. I have just begun my journey to shoot a film next summer in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. Just wanted to say thanks,

  9. I would love, love, love to own a Bomb tshirt. Is there anywhere I could find one to purchase? I have scoured the Internet to jo avail. Hits of Acid is still one of my favorite pieces of music to this very day.
