Michael S. Bandy  

Author, award winning Children's Book and Screenwriter

Michael S. Bandy caught the creative bug at a very young age. Growing up in the deep south, Michael would act out roles he had seen on television to an audience of chickens, hogs and an old bovine named Bessie on the family farm (scary, but true).

Bandy had no idea that his experience working a tough crowd would pay off years later when he began hosting industrial shows for a number of demanding Fortune 500 companies. He has been involved with shows including the Silver Anvil Award winning, Drive for Conservation, Not For Men Only and EC1 - Lets Clear the Air About Air Pollution.

Bandy, a founding member of the comedy troupe, Comedy Shorts, has written for the European animated children's series, Star Street and has worked as a writer and production consultant on Animation Tune Factory's Muscle Dogg. With co-author Eric Stein, Bandy wrote the children’s book, White Water (Candlewick Press) and the award-winning script of the same name which also garnered him a Cosby Screenwriting Fellowship. Bandy and Stein also penned the scripts, Man of the Cloth, The Messiah From Madison and Lemonade, a Gordon Parks Award finalist.

Bandy, has appeared in a variety of productions including The Mighty Gents, Purlie Victorious, Wine In The Wilderness, A Raisin in the Sun, The Madwoman of Challiot, Jacques Brels Is Alive and Well In Paris, and The Smokin Room, which he co-wrote and produced. His film and video credits include, Not My Cab Buddy, Untogether, and The New People. He was also a regular for the Cincinnati, CBS local access programs, Dr. Kincaid's Casebook and Juvenile Court.

His promotional and marketing company, Singer/Bandy Group, consulted with Hanna-Barbera to develop Hanna-Barbera Family Favorites, a book series from Bantam Double Dell. His company also produced story boards for the MCA' direct-to-video production of The Little Engine That Could and created animation cel art for the 50th Anniversary of Woody Woodpecker for Walter Lantz Productions. His creative and marketing talents were also utilized on a project for former Heavy Weight Champion of the World, Riddick Bowe.

While at the University of Cincinnati, Bandy was an announcer for campus radio station WFIB. In addition to producing and performing with the Black Rose Theater Guild and Mariemont Players, Bandy wrote, directed and was executive producer of the community student film, A Tragic Thang, which won critical recognition.

His professional and civic affiliations have included: The Animation Art Guild; Weingart Partners, a homeless advocacy organization; and Southern California Youth Conference.
