Being involved in filmmaking myself, you can only imagine how excited I was to recently discover the work of Naperville’s own Mike Krumlauf. Once you view the sample of Mike’s talents below, you might be surprised to learn that he is only a Junior at Naperville North High School.
I caught up with Mike recently via email and learned that he has been shooting video since the age of nine, which is a milestone he says changed his life forever. His passion resides in the realm of cinematography and music video. Though he’s in high school today, Mike already has his sights set on making a living with his art.
Like many of us who have grown up with a strong artistic orientation, I related to Mike’s candid remarks about how filmmaking opened up a welcome place for him in this world to express his thoughts, perspectives and ideas.
I encourage you to check out Mike’s work and keep an eye out for him as he continues to emerge in this new media world. SM
