A graduate of the University of Waterloo's Film Studies program, Michael Mercy's range of projects is as diverse as his range of talents. The Canadian born filmmaker has produced music videos, shorts, television shows and the inspirational tear-jerker feature film, "Acuity." His narrative work ranges from drama to thriller to action-comedy. Mercy works as a writer, director, cinematographer, editor and actor in his various projects as well. His films have enjoyed success at festivals all over North America,including Nashville, Houston and Toronto. Mercy also co-hosts "Armchair Directors," a weekly movie review and discussion TV show that airs in Southern Ontario and online.

-   Shoulder length hair

-   Themes of redemption, inspiration and spirituality


-   Adheres to a "straight edge" lifestyle (doesn't smoke, do drugs, or consume alcohol).

-   Iris in right eye is half blue, half brown (heterochromia).


-   Create your own opportunities, and exploit to the fullest potential the precious few that fall into your lap.

-   You can learn just as much from watching someone do something wrong as you can from watching someone do something right.

-   Honor, integrity, respect and self discipline are very important to me, so I think I'd fit right in with the Samurai.

-   I shudder at the thought of how many opportunities have been missed because someone couldn't take 30 seconds within a 48 hour span to answer an e-mail. It's a form of disrespect when you don't write back to an important question/request. Respect has unfortunately gone out the window along with the postage stamp.

-   Leading by example is pretty much the only thing you can do [to make the world a better place]. Think of others before you think of yourself. Treat others with respect, and remember that there are no momentary lapses in integrity.

-   Watching an entire theater of people break down in tears while watching my feature film, "Acuity" [was my most fulfilling filmmaking experience]. If just one person called up an old friend or relative and said "I love you" after watching that movie, then the whole thing was worth it.

-   I feel very fortunate to be already collaborating on a regular basis with several great talents, who are also good friends. Usually you can't work with the same people you hang and have fun with, but I'm very lucky to know a number of people just like that. If I had to pick some "celebrities" though, I'd go with James Cameron and Clint Eastwood. Cameron because I admire his attention to detail, and Clint because he's The Man. Even if I screwed something up on Eastwood's set, I'd consider it an honor if he called me a "no good punk." I'd brag about it to no end.

-   [on being alcohol free] I got through half a beer before I realized it just wasn't for me. Messes with my concentration. I'm proud to be "Above the Influence, " and I love that there's a movement by the same name that encourages young people to stand up to peer pressure and not drink in order to have a good time.

-   If something makes you happy, as long as you're not causing harm to yourself or others, it should never embarrass you.
