Michael Hartzog

Film Maker

I'm a multimedia kind of guy, but ever since I was eleven I've had my finger on a "record" button. Eating, sleeping and breathing film production. I graduated with a BFA in Live Action Film from the California Institute of The Arts (CalArts) in 1999. Avoiding the hustle of the Hollywood scene, I moved into the world of commercial advertising. After ten years of "Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!" and "But wait; there's more!" I've come back to my filmmaking roots to share my talents with the world of educational documentary and the super awesome folks at In The Telling.
