“The Wrong Rock hits home and drives to the core of what makes cinema great. The team Michael has assembled is absolutely incredible. Despite everyone being spread out all over the world, Michael has been able to unify their efforts in an extremely cohesive way and the work they are doing is truly awe inspiring.”

“Michael has the knowledge to make a film like this take off, he is great at bringing people together, running a large project and seeing it is completed. His previous experience and the way he managed the community of artists tells me this new film is sure to be a passionate and well managed endeavor.”

“Through The Wrong Rock, Michael Cawood celebrates a powerful message of acceptance and unity. By assembling a global team of talented animators, he masterfully crafts (and echos) the journey of a single hopeful soul who helps shine a light on the truth that we are all one. There is no time more appropriate than now to spread this message, and I’m thrilled that Michael and his team are doing so with passion and integrity.”
