"Great film directors get cut up," Mike explains on his website. "They take pains with the details, story, money and sacrifices to their vision. Their body succumbs to the pressure."

All figures are 1:4 in scale, and 18 inches tall or wide, sculpted from scratch in wood and polymer clay. "Art and film treat my pain. They're magic. They trick me into remembering why this world is so damn beautiful," Mike adds.
