Michael English is a seasoned 15-time Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist, filmmaker and print journalist. English’s recent environmental documentary credits include a list of investigative films that explore and explain many of the vexing but little-understood problems facing the Chesapeake Bay and unknowing residents in the mid-Atlantic region. Some of them include: Fracking: Weighing the Risks; Rivers of Worry; Blind Spots: Threats to the Chesapeake; Chesapeake Crossroads; Weary Shoreline; and, Hidden Rivers. His acclaimed film about the widespread environmental damage from nutrient runoff from farms, The Runoff Dilemma, was screened at the 2011 D.C. Environmental Film Festival. Recent historical film credits include: The War of 1812 on the Chesapeake; and, The Heart of the Civil War. His most recent political film was the critically-acclaimed Citizen Schaefer – a film biography of Maryland’s colorful governor, William Donald Schaefer. On the lighter side, his cultural program credits include: Eatin’ Crabs Chesapeake Style; Eatin’ Crabcakes: The Best I Ever Had!; Chesapeake Bay by Air; Secrets of the Chesapeake; and, The Chesapeake Bay Bridge: Spanning the Bay. Besides his ongoing work as an independent filmmaker and in developing new projects as the Executive Producer of Environmental and Historical programming at Maryland Public Television, English is currently busy slogging through the muck shooting Search for the USS Scorpion, an exciting new film documenting the fascinating discovery and ongoing archeological excavation of a sunken sloop of war found buried in the Patuxent River. The U.S. Navy believes the ship is Commodore Joshua Barney’s long-lost War of 1812 flotilla flagship – scuttled in August, 1814 to deny the British its capture. Search for the USS Scorpion is scheduled to premiere in August 2014, on the 200th anniversary of the battle for the Patuxent River.
