About Michael

I'm Michael Kleven. I work as a cinematographer, sound mixer, producer and stills photographer. I've worked on a wide range of corporate, narrative, and documentary projects as a sound mixer. I've also worked as a producer and cinematographer in corporate and documentary production. I take on occasional gigs as an event, portrait and set photographer. I'm proud of the work I do. People seem to like my work and positive presence on set.

Unique traits: I started out studying theater and acting during my first go around in college. I think this gives me a unique perspective when working on set. In the end it may have been my work as a yearbook photographer and college radio station employee which have had a greater impact on my work life. Still I think the energy, drama and storytelling of theater helps guide me emotionally. Other traits include my great sense of humor, (everyone says so), love of photography and phycical fitness.
