Mike Hazard Biography:
Mike loves to use a camera to see the world through another person's eye. Because almost nobody earns a living making authentic documentaries, Mike works as an artist-in-the-schools to pay the bills. Mike says "Once upon a good time in sixth grade, my Dad took me out of school to help him film a story about the radical abolitionist, John Brown. Almost fifty years later, when people asked why I love the camera, I always laugh with the story that starts, "In the beginning, I got out of school".
A recent Bush artist fellow, Mike has made five films that have enjoyed national release on PBS. His short C. Beck is a recent Grand Prize Winner of the ITVS Short Film Competition. His documentary on the late politician and poet Eugene McCarthy was awarded the D.L. Mabery prize, Minnesota's Oscar.
