Mike Burns’ Movipods: Where Podcasts Meet the Power of Visual Storytelling


In an industry where creatives routinely encounter significant hurdles, one standout filmmaker emerges as a trailblazing force of transformation. Mike Burns has unveiled his latest venture: Movipods, which is poised to revolutionize entertainment by harnessing scripted podcasts’ potential.

The inspiration behind Mike’s venture traces back to a common hurdle encountered by creatives. “So many creatives struggle with building momentum for their projects,” Mike shares. Identifying this pervasive challenge, he envisioned Movipods as a platform to illuminate extraordinary talent while forging connections between Hollywood and budding creators on a global scale. 

Movipods isn’t solely a platform; it represents a movement, a bridge linking writers with industry professionals, through scripted podcasts, an ecosystem where budding ideas metamorphose into mainstream feature films and television series. It’s a fertile ground where ideas take root, evolve, and ultimately blossom. With its co-production agreements, the network allows writers to adapt their intellectual properties into enthralling audio dramas while still adhering to the guidelines of the current writers’ strike. 

In addition to conventional screenplays, Movipods introduces a genre called “Movipod Musicals,” an inventive form of storytelling that seamlessly integrates music and storytelling, which provides songwriters with a unique opportunity to build story around their new as well as existing releases. With a diverse portfolio encompassing dramas, thrillers, sci-fi, comedies, and musical genres, the network embarks on a bold and ambitious journey. 

Already displaying a remarkable lineup of 10 “Movipods” spanning various genres, the podcast network is set to capture audiences. As the debut podcast series, “Movipods Presents” and “Movipods Musicals,” gear up for a fall launch, Mike’s dedication to amplifying screenwriters and songwriters’ works takes center stage. It embodies a commitment to reimagining the packaging of intellectual properties for the entertainment industry, all while elevating the potential of the burgeoning scripted podcast medium.

Throughout Mike’s career, his attention to narrative storytelling through films and music and determination to promote materializing talent have proven to be a testament to his dedication to the entertainment industry. With over 80 film credits, and millions of media impressions, he has garnered an impressive resume. 

Mike’s vision takes center stage as Movipods prepares to enrapture listeners with its series lineup. He reflects, “Never stop believing in your vision. When you have one, it’s a sign of a real need. You’re likely just slightly ahead of your time if it takes a minute to manifest your vision into something big.”

Looking ahead, Mike’s aspirations for Movipods are grand yet rooted in the practicality of nurturing talent. “I believe that Movipods will become the leading destination for storytellers and songwriters to grow their audiences and get their projects off the ground in a significant way by leveraging the power of audio,” he says. As Movipods grows, Mike continues to build the foundation for a world in which narrative and sound will reshape the fabric of the entertainment industry.
