Michael Yessian Answers Five Questions
September 30, 2020 by Andrew Schneider
In this week's round of Five Questions with SCREEN, we bring in Yessian's Head of Production Michael Yessian. Yessian is all about crafting sonic and musical environments that transform your experience. Let's hear what Michael has to say about everything from his go-to karaoke song to the cacophony of the presidential elections...
SCREEN: On the heels of the first Presidential Debate... If you could appoint ANYONE to be President of the United States, who would it be?
MICHAEL: Can I just appoint myself at this point? I’ve got some ideas. Lets get shit done! We need more love and compassion in this country. Enough is enough!
SCREEN: On a lighter note... Staying on that MUSIC theme that is what Yessian is all about, what is your go-to karaoke song?
MICHAEL: I mean, you'll get me up there on stage if the bartender is pouring heavy that night! As for the song, I think everyone melts when I sing “ You've Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ ". No really…don't get me up on stage!
SCREEN: If you could play any superhero in a major motion picture, who would it be?
MICHAEL: Superman! The dude can fly, shoot rays out of his eyes, he stands for the greater good and did I mention he can fly? I'd change the red cape to Yessian orange though.
SCREEN: What has been your favorite "stay-at-home" activity over the past few months?
MICHAEL: Like most people during these times I've never spent so much quality time at home in my life. The one on one with the kids has been refreshing. From fishing to biking we've been staying pretty active together. Although, it's getting to the point where I sure hope they can go back to school and I can hop on a flight to go see all our friends and colleagues again in person.
SCREEN: What's inspiring you today?
MICHAEL: The hope that we can come to some real change in this country. There's a movement that EVERYONE needs to recognize. At the end of the day, we as a people need to come together. If not for us then for our children.
