Michael joined the National Academy of Songwriters in Los Angeles, California (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Academy_of_Songwriters) in 1987 as Michael studied songwriting, evaluation, and analysis. Michael also took many seminars from Grammy-winning songwriters such as Irene Cara, and Jackie DeShannon, as many artist representatives from Arista Records, Capitol Records, Warner Brother Records, and many more at the National Academy of Songwriters in Los Angeles, California. A pop song I wrote, "Foreigner," was picked up by Arista records in Beverly Hills in 1989, and they planned to give Michael an album, but Michael didn't finish the contract with Arista to release the Foreigner song. Michael also wrote a story, was a director of martial arts, a producer, and co-starred with a famous Vietnamese actress, Ly Le Hoa, in a low-budget martial arts movie called "Revenge of the Dragon," aka Michael Dang.
In 1989, Michael wrote another screenplay called "My Enemy Is My Friend" for an independent producer Mr. Alex Khuang, and Alex paid Michael ten thousand dollars for the script. This script advisor was Mr. Kevin Pike, the Film Trix Agency. At that time, Michael took many seminars with AFI: http://www.afi.com - regarding some exceptional cases studied with Warner Brothers Production of film distribution: Terry Semel, Mark Canton, Jon Peters, Joe Silver, Lisa Hasen, Lucy Fisher, Shane Black, Lawrence Gordon, and many other famous producers and directors of Hollywood. Michael also studied some seminars at the AFI with a former president of the director guild (Gilbert Cates), Joe Dante, John Badham, Film Finance Inc., Creative Agency, Willam Morris Agency, etc.
Further turmoil continued shortly after when, in 1992, Warner Brothers Production wanted to develop Michael's synopsis called "Wonder B and the Atlantis Force." It was an action/martial arts/science fiction film. At the same time, Michael had a special director from Paramount Pictures who tried to help Michael to work with actor and comedian Eddie Murphy in the '1980s before the Golden Child movie.
Additionally, Michael also had special funding from the Bank of American entertainment division for Michael's screenplay called "Do It For Love" with famous screenplay advisor Mr. George Gallo of Midnight Run (starring Robert De Niro). A major steel company tried to fund Michael's movie script, and it starred Steven Ford, the son of former President of the United States, Gerald Ford, but Michael did not finish any contracts to make those movies at that time.
Michael was the project leader assigned to a ten-million-dollar account, the "Tourist Shopping Center" project in the City of 29 Palms, California, and it was approved by the Major and City Councils in 1990, aka Hong Thanh Dang. Michael was an eBay Powerseller in 2003. Michael is currently in pre-project for a new, most superlative advanced technology-independent magical action science fiction, martial arts, summer and winter Olympics, Xfighters (http://xfighters.redbull.com/en_US), movie called "Invincibility Dream" and Michael plans to finish it by December of 2018. Michael would like to do a lot of movies in the future. Note: The Invincibility Dream movie project will not start production right now because Michael is trying to work with the United Nations Foundation to reform the United Nations Charter of Human Rights.

Michael worked two hours and got paid eight hours on the weekend. Michael had a lot of fun times at PCC at that time. Michael moved to work for Terminal Data Corporation in Woodland Hills, California, as an engineering technician for one year.

George Lucas bought ten computers for $1 million to make the Return of the Jedi movie, and Steven Allan Spielberg bought five computers for his Young Sherlock Holmes movie. Truly, Symbolic, Inc. has helped Michael a lot with their IT education, and they gave me all the money for my IT college at that time.

Michael worked with the architect and engineer to finish the project, and it was approved by City Major and City Councils in 1990. However, we got the Gulf War (August 2, 1990 – February 28, 1991), we could not get finance for the project, and it was not built.
