Presenter Profile

Michael Hartzog

Guest Artist, Filmmaker

I grew up an artist; drawing, painting, sculpting, and anything I could get my hands on. Being the youngest of three, I was extremely shy and found solace in art. I was introduced to video as an art medium when Video 8 camcorders hit the market. From there I was completely consumed by everything filmmaking. Lighting, shooting, directing and writing. I’ve now been in the film/video field for over 20 years. I have of course upgraded my camera and gear since then. Most of my experience and knowledge is hands on. I’ve worked on features, shorts, docs, commercials, by way of freelance, corporate, and startup companies. I have held many positions in the film world, but my current position is “Video Specialist” in the creative department at Sphero. That means anything and everything film/video related. Shooting, editing, commercials, tutorials, social media, etc. It’s a great big world out there and I crave to record it!
