Having established himself as an actor of great diversity, Michael began his career as a director by devoting five years of his life directing his first major independent film, Illusion. The film stars Goorjian alongside Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas, and deals with the theme of “following your heart” . . . something Goorjian firmly believes in. Since then, he has directed the Louise L. Hay documentary You Can Heal Your Life and Wayne Dyer’s film The Shift. Michael directed the Tales of Everyday Magic original film anthology.
