Mike Forrester in Ogallah, KS videotaping a tornado

Mike Forrester, Producer/Director

Working in video production as both a Cameraman/Director of Photography and producer since 1990, Mike's fascination with visual storytelling has been a lifelong obsession.

A Florida native, Mike's career started in the corporate world where he created productions for Amtrak before setting out on his own in 1995. After moving to Atlanta in 1998, he freelanced for CNN, The Weather Channel and corporate clients in the region.

Mike has worked with US Presidents, Fortune 20 CEO's, celebrities, dignitaries, politicians, athletes along with everyday citizens. He brings the same care, professionalism and level of service to all his clients.

He has chased and filmed dozens of tornadoes, gone through the eye of hurricanes, endured blizzards and tennis ball sized hailstones in his quest to find extreme weather. His work has been featured on ABC, National Geographic, The Weather Channel and other networks.

Even after years of adventures, you'll still find him producing your video, encoding your webcast or setting up the next studio shoot.

success stories

Working with Mike was so simple. We knew what we wanted but had no idea on how to make it a reality. It was critical with our project on a national level to create a video that appealed to both consumers and businesses. They made our vision possible along with assisting with casting, story boarding, etc. I will definitely recommend and use them in the future."
