Michael Barbuto: Actor. Writer. Producer.

Being an actor/writer/creative person you are basically a storyteller. My journey has been an exploration of that storytelling.

Michael Barbuto is an award-winning mul6- talented actor, writer and producer who is based in Los Angeles. He is currently starring in Hallmark Channel's new original movie, Banner 4th Of July which premieres June 29th on the network and also stars Brooke White and Oscar winner Mercedes Reuhl.

Upon gradua6on, Barbuto sought opportuni6es in Los Angeles. He was accepted to the pres6gious American Academy of Drama6c Arts in 2003. During his 6me at the Academy, Barbuto seasoned as an actor and performed in over a dozen professional shows once joining the elite Academys company in 2005.

For Barbuto the complex retelling of the human story is best explored through the intertwined avenues of ac6ng, wri6ng and producing. Since the age of eight, he was hooked by the performance arts when he observed audiences experience varying emo6onal response to lms leading him to ponder on how a lm could make adults laugh and how it could make them cry. In accep6ng roles currently, he looks at the the no6on of being put in the middle of a conict that is a complex emo6onal space that we all nd ourselves in from 6me to 6me. That is storytelling.
