Preston was my dog growing up.
He was awesome. 
Preston Films is my company.
It's pretty awesome too.

This is the portion of the website where I boast about myself in an attempt to get your business. So here goes.

My name is Michael Torpey and I
am the owner of Preston Films. 

I named my company after my dog, Preston. I figured that if I can do half as good a job running my business as he did being my best friend, I'll have great success. 

I was born and raised in the suburbs of New York City.  My mom says I used to scream a lot when I was a child which undoubtedly led to my musical abilities.  In addition to creating beautiful films, I am also a conservatory trained vocalist.  While my lifestyle choices have pushed my musical endeavors aside, I still enjoying singing and could come of out retirement at any time.  If you're interested, you can listen to a clip of me singing here. 

A veteran both on stage and off, my experience behind the scenes includes everything from Broadway productions to live broadcasts and feature films.  Over 15 years of experience in the entertainment industry has afforded me the opportunity to work with some of the world's most notable celebrities and talents.  I don't want to drop names, but I will anyway...  Paul McCartney, Hillary Clinton, Meryl Streep, Itzhak Perlman, Jerry Seinfeld, Michael Buble, Patti Labelle, Aretha Franklin, The Eagles, Don Henley, Michael Bloomberg, Allan Greenspan, Josh Groban, Chevy Chase, Jennifer Lopez, to name a few. 

My years of experience in production ensures that you are getting reliable, professional, and knowledgeable service.
