Mike Call

 

Mike began his career as a director of photography shooting rock climbing videos in 1988. He has since has gone on to shoot and direct dozens of critically acclaimed rock climbing films and TV shows. Mike has worked with clients such as NBC, CBS, Speed Channel and Disney, shooting national news segments, TV shows and behind-the-scenes movies. Keeping his interest in the outdoors, he was a cinematographer on projects such as the Sports Emmy Award winning film King Lines by bigUP Productions. He also began directing and shooting commercials and music videos, taking his unique perspective and work ethic to new, creative heights. Moving into online media and rich viral content, Mike was commissioned by Esque produce a visual study of their unique handblown glassworks.  The finished piece, “Glass is Liquid” went on to draw huge viewership after airing on leading web journal Cool Hunting.
Mike had the pleasure of operating cameras alongside two of his film industry heroes: Academy Award winners for Best Director and Best Cinematography for Slumdog Millionaire, as well as a number of other modern classics: Danny Boyle and Anthony Dod Mantle as an integral shooter on their latest project, “127 Hours”, which is being hailed as yet another contender for Oscars in 2011.
