Mike McCaleb got his start making demo reels for comedians while he was a manager at the Brea Improv. While finishing film school, a friend invited him to help film a wedding. The first time, he hated it. Then, he took a documentary film class. The second time, he was hooked, and he’s been doing it ever since. This is Mike's fifteenth year as an event filmmaker. He gained experience as an editor for another company, but soon realized that the magic was in doing BOTH filming and editing.
What REALLY matters is all of the weddings he's been a part of, because those gave him the experience to anticipate new shots, new angles, and new emotions. Every event is different, but one can borrow from events past to make sure they are in the right place at the right time, and feel comfortable in their shoes.
