"I have worked with Michael McCormack on several projects including documentaries, narrative subjects and presentations. He is a talented musician and more importantly a collaborator. He understands the mood, tone and needs of the Production and works tirelessly to achieve it. His music doesn't underscore the project, but combines with it to help tell your story."
- J. Michael Roddy (Producer/Creative Director) - The Shark Is Still Working
"Michael McCormack's work on the score for The Shark is Still Working was, in a word, outstanding. His professionalism, flexibility, and ability to produce quality music while still meeting deadlines are qualities that made him an asset to the project. Michael's challenge was to create a score that was evocative of John Williams' classic score for JAWS while not being an imitation, and at this, he exceeded all of our expectations."
- Jake Gove (Executive Producer) - The Shark Is Still Working
"Having scored a couple short films and a feature documentary I directed, Michael McCormack's passion for making music is evident in both the scope and quality of tracks provided. His focus has always been on creating the best aural environment for its visual counterpart. In my case, there were critical requirements to evoke much-needed pathos upon which the project could rise or fall. Mike always came through with flying colors. His dedication to excellence and punctuality is nothing less than astonishing. I have never before worked with anyone who can, in such a timely fashion, produce the volume and variety of styles he does. I am very pleased with the level to which his scores have raised my work."
-Erik Hollander (Producer/Director) - The Shark is Still Working
"...it's definitely worth mentioning that when The Shark is Still Working does find its way to being released, we feel very confident that you won't have to be a Jaws fan or even a movie fan to love it. We believe this because we made The Shark is Still Working full of texture, visual pizazz, and other kinds of sensory stimuli to make TSISW fit right in in the MTV generation. Much, much more than a traditional "talking head" documentary... One of the biggest reasons TSISW will succeed on this level will be through its music. TSISW also is carried by modern, cutting edge music written exclusively for the project... For that, TSISW benefits from the magnificent contribution of composer Michael McCormack."
