Exploring the World of Michael Crichton

Michael Crichton’s legacy—as the man, the author, the filmmaker, the doctor, the teacher, the visionary, and more—is very much alive and important today.

This website is an entrance into that world. As the Official Site for Michael Crichton, we at CrichtonSun Productions, LLC invite you to explore the many facets of the man behind the genius. Michael’s work, whether in books, television, or film, is revolutionary and timeless, speaking to all generations. We want to honor his life and continue to reveal his words, ideas, influences, and diverse interests to you.

As we excavate Michael’s Archives, we will periodically crack open the vault doors for you to peek inside, unveiling his explorations within the spheres of human behavior, morality, modern medicine, technology, and scientific breakthroughs, to name a few. The most exciting part is rediscovering the prolific nature of Michael’s work and how it compels us to revisit his world and continuously be curious.

The importance of this website is to fully express the vision of the man behind the characters and stories we have all come to love. Michael Crichton, the Jules Verne of our modern era, was a true Renaissance man, ahead of his time, and relevant to all generations.

Welcome to the World of Michael Crichton.

In His Own Words

Michael Crichton - In His Own WordsWhen I was 15 I wanted to go to college and be a writer. When I was 20, I was in college and applying to medical school to become a doctor. When I was 25, I was in medical school but I was going to quit when it was finished. When I was 30, I was a successful film director with my first film, Westworld, in release. When I was 35, I had almost decided I didn’t want to direct any more, but I wasn’t sure what to do next. So I started a software company and did computer games. When I was 40, I really wanted to only direct movies and never write again. When I was 45, I had my first child and I was happily writing and not interested in directing. … I feel like my life has been very exciting and very unpredictable.
