Michael Neumann began life in Chicago as the son of a classically trained art director and pianist from Prague and thus his childhood was filled with modern images, Czech puppetry and music. By the age of eight, he was shooting and editing Super-8 narratives. Later, his studies, including the Art Institute of Chicago and a master's from Northwestern, continually focused on film production for television application. Simultaneously, Michael worked at area network affiliates and further immersed himself in the process of production. A seven-year stint producing for a national agency provided Michael with a particular understanding of client & agency needs. Now, Michael's unique creative vision and ability to work well with actors and real people in a variety of scenarios and situations, yields a most distinctive creative production every time.
