Between 1993-1995 Michael travelled and worked all over the USA and South America, making films for An Afternoon On The Moon, Lonely Planet, The Sunday Show and, perhaps most notoriously, The Word. Preachers, pornstars and pageant queens all came in for the Terry Christian treatment. For a more in-depth analysis we recommend My Word, An Autobiography by Terry Christian (chapter 12).
