Michael A. Smith has had 25 years of experience that has lead him to making movies. He acted in every play and musical in his high school years and had an Associate’s Degree in Electronics by the age of 18. These offered him a background in theater and the willingness to accept ever developing technologies in today’s digital media. In college, a friend thought he would make a good Disc Jockey so he began his career being a wedding and on-air DJ.
Michael soon proved that we could shoot and edit wedding videos better than those with film school training and he realized his path was in visually story telling. Today, Michael is an award winning Producer, Director, and Cinematographer of movies, shorts and documentaries. He volunteers his time to the local PTA and Boy Scouts and is a Guest Lecturer at the Dubois Business College School of Movie Making.
