Michael Kenneth Mann (born February 5, 1943) is a film director, screenwriter, and producer. Major films include the period epic The Last of the Mohicans, the drama The Insider, the biopic Ali, and the crime films Heat Collateral and Public Enemies.

Rather than dubbing in the gunshots during the bank robbery shootout, Michael Mann had microphones carefully placed around the set, so that the audio could be captured live.
This added to the impact of the scene, because it sounded like no other gunfight shown on-screen.
