Jack-of-all-trades, master of SOME
Michael Christensen started No Coast Creative in 2010, as a sole-proprietor offering video production services. He has since worked for companies like AKPD Message and Media, GE, the MCAA, WJE, Walsh Construction, Procore, B&H, Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School, and Tribeca Flashpoint College.
When Michael was in first grade he knew that he wanted to be either a filmmaker or a professional basketball player*. The foundation of all of Michael's creative ambitions is a passion for good stories, and that passion has helped him to develop a comprehensive set of creative skills and a deep respect for the power of storytelling. When studying photography as an undergraduate in the School of Art at Illinois State University, a mentor asked Michael, "why do you want to make pictures?" This seemed like a straightforward question at the time, but even today he is still finding new and compelling answers.
When it comes to digital media, Michael is an unapologetic Jack-of-all-trades, and while some may claim that a Jack-of-all-trades is master of none, Michael has developed considerable expertise in cinematography/videography, video editing, and motion graphics. He is also a highly proficient director, colorist, graphic designer, photo editor, and web designer.
