Mike Smith

BOARD MEMBER

Mike Smith is the creator, producer, and director of the viral film sensation Out of Shadows. That documentary – viewed by well over 100 million people worldwide – shed light on media manipulation and child trafficking. Since the 2020 release of Out of Shadows, Mike has become a Champion in the fight against media censorship and exposing the dark side of Hollywood.

Mike Smith grew up in Houston, Texas, where he began a multi-sport athletic career at a young age. Mike was a lifelong practitioner in various martial arts, horseback riding, and motocross. On a diving scholarship, Mike graduated from Auburn University. He then went on to high dive at live shows at Magic Mountain and the MGM Grand Hotel.

Mike then began working on movie sets doing action stunts and quickly became one of Hollywood’s hottest stunt doubles. He served as doubles for many stars, such as Mel Gibson, Ethan Hawke, Christian Bale, David Duchovny, and several other A-list actors. He’s been James Bond, Batman, and countless other iconic movie heroes. Mike has appeared in hundreds of feature films and television productions.

As Mike’s career progressed, he transitioned into the world of stunt coordinating and action directing. Mike became an honored member of Stunts Unlimited – one of Hollywood’s most prestigious groups – and he served on the board of directors for multiple terms. Mike never stopped trying to develop his ability in filmmaking, and eventually, he became one of Hollywood’s most sought-after action directors. Mike also accomplished the rare achievement in Hollywood of becoming a member of SAG/AFTRA, WGA, DGA, and the Academy of Motions Pictures.

Sadly, tragedy struck in 2014. Mike shattered his spine and became paralyzed from the waist down while working on a movie set. His recovery took him on a journey that brought him to Christ and the realization that Hollywood was no longer a world he wanted to be a part of. Mike made the decision to sacrifice his career and livelihood, to expose what he believed to be the truth about the dark underbelly of media and Hollywood through his blockbuster film Out of Shadows.

Currently, Mike and his team are dedicated to revolutionizing and restructuring the media for the Judeo-Christian fundamentals that this nation was founded upon.
