DIRECTOR | CINEMATOGRAPHER | EDITOR
Hard work has never been a stranger to Micah Brown, a former two-sport athlete in both football and track at the University of Kansas. After dropping a track scholarship to walk on for football, he became the hero of the 2008 Orange Bowl team by catching a game-saving first down off a fake punt. The catch earned Micah a scholarship, and helped secure KU their first BCS Championship.
The same passion and uncompromising pursuit of excellence that Micah had on the football field carried over into his career. After graduating with a degree in filmmaking, Micah went from making plays on the football field to editing movie trailers at The Refinery AV in Burbank, California. During that time, he collaborated with some of the top creative minds in the industry on movie campaigns such as Date Night, Knight and Day, and the A-Team.
Micah’s love for sports called him back to Lawrence as he returned to his alma mater to produce an all-access web series for Kansas Football called The Gridiron. Over the next two seasons, The Gridiron would break new ground in collegiate video productions and open the door for a new wave of recruiting tactics. The series quickly became a fan favorite amongst Jayhawk Nation and was recognized on a larger stage by winning back-to-back Emmy’s for Best Regularly Scheduled Sports Program.
Micah is an award winning director and cinematographer who has worked with some of the top networks in the country. His work has been featured on nearly every major sports network in the country including ESPN, Showtime, NFL Network, ABC, Fox Sports, NBC Sports, CBS Sports, Big 10 Network, Golf Channel, The Blaze and the Bleacher Report. In addition to being a part of over fifty television shows or features, Micah has also produced national commercial campaigns for companies like Garmin and USA Football.
He recently served as a lead cinematographer on ESPN’s four-part mini series Draft Academy which followed four NFL prospects through the draft process and Showtime’s Emmy Award winning boxing series All Access. Hired primary for sports features and documentaries – Micah’s creative direction/cinematography has made him a regular contributor to award winning programs such as College Gameday, E:60, NFL Countdown,SC Featured and The Journey.
He is currently directing a documentary for Showtime set to air in 2016.
