Mick Gochanour is an award winning Writer/Producer/Director.  The soundtrack to his most recent film, The Rolling Stones: IRELAND '65 (a/k/a Charlie is My Darling) won a Grammy for best historical recording.   The film has been called “the most important lost rock film ​of all time” by Rolling Stone Magazine and currently has a 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating.

He also received a Grammy as a producer for Sam Cooke: Legend, the first feature-length biography/documentary of the barrier-changing artist.

One of the first projects he produced was The Rolling Stones Rock & Roll Circus, a long thought lost legendary film that had become the holy grail of music film cult status.  It included John Lennon’s 1st post-Beatles performance with Yoko One, Eric Clapton & Mitch Mitchell, The Who, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithful and featured The Stones introducing Beggars Banquet, their new record of the day.  It was shelved, for various reasons, and eventually disappeared.  Through detective work and on-site, physical digging, he managed to locate the missing, unfinished film, buried in a massive archive in London.  Working with co-producer/editor Robin Klein, Mick spent the next 3 years shaping, restoring and conforming the film that now exists.  The film debuted at the 41st NY Film Festival to universal acclaim. His has produced and/or directed numerous documentaries, music videos, animations, and commercials. Collaborations include works with Albert Maysels, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and MIck Rock among many others.
