Michael is known as one of the industry’s most knowledgeable, inventive and passionate technologists. Born into a family of filmmakers, he has produced and directed several high impact documentaries, most recently, for the United Nation’s Geneva Summit for Human Rights. His documentaries help raise awareness of human and animal rights violations around the world to provide a voice for the voiceless.
Always interested in the overlap between film and technology, Michael co-founded Radiant Images in 2005. His work and innovations in film led to his acceptance as an associate member of the American Society of Cinematographers, an invite-only membership group for experts with distinguished credits in film. He also received several other prestigious honors that include the Mario Award, which recognizes significant technological breakthroughs, and landed a spot on the Studio Daily’s list of The Top Creatives & Technologists. Mr. Mansouri’s efforts in filmmaking led to NASA / JPL’s 2018 Emmy win for Outstanding Original Interactive Program for Cassini’s Grand Finale, which was NASA’s first recognition in the film community. At Radiant, he hopes to break the technology barriers surrounding digital innovation and provide a more meaningful impact that connects and engages humanity.
