Michael Sacca began working with cameras when he was 12 years old. His first efforts were with his father's 8mm movie camera, making stop motion animation shorts featuring the antics of neighborhood kids. His experience in film and video grew from work in photography, which still plays a central role in his image making. He has worked with all formats of still cameras from 35mm to 4x5, analog to digital, and with super8 (which he still actively shoots with) and 16mm film and a variety of video formats including High Definition. Michael works as an independent producer and freelance cameraman and photographer. He worked for 10 years as Senior Producer and Principal Videographer for Dartmouth College. Broadcast film and video credits include Passamaquoddy Basketmakers, (co-producer, cameraman and editor) The Abenaki of Vermont, (producer, cameraman and editor) Nosey Parker (camera assistant and second unit cameraman); William Sloane Coffin: A Lover's Quarrel With America (cameraman); and Birdsong and Coffee (cameraman), winner of a Cine Golden Eagle Award. In the 10 years he worked at Dartmouth, the Media Production Group has been recognized with 6 Gold Medals from CASE (The Council for Advancement and Support of Education) for promotional and documentary pieces done for Dartmouth College.
