Hello and welcome to my site!
My name is Michael Poggenburg and I have been working as a video editor and post-production artist since 2005. I recently edited and co-directed the award-winning film Woke Up Alive, a documentary about peace and environmentalism in the Middle East. In addition to my own work, I have done freelance editing and consulting for independent filmmakers and production companies around the Pacific Northwest, as well as taught programs in video production and post-production at Northwest Film Forum, 911 Seattle Media Arts Center, and the City of Seattle RecTech Youth Program. I am currently employed by Camera One in Seattle as an editor and post-production specialist.
My real passion in working with video comes from turning ordinary footage into an extraordinary story. In my previous work, I have enjoyed the challenge of transforming low-budget, spontaneous film projects into innovative and cutting edge works of art. I revel in pushing the limits of what video and independent film can accomplish and take pleasure in working outside the established boundaries as an editor.
I also helped found the production company Owl Cat Pictures and am currently in the early stages of pre-production on my next documentary film titled Sacred Food: A Story of How We Eat.
In addition to working in visual media, I have also written electronic music since I was 15 years old. In fact, it was working in audio production that inspired my leap into visual media. You can learn more about my music here.
