Micha Hilliard (Film Skillet Producer) - Black Mountain NC USA
Hilliard was born and grew up in a small town in Switzerland, among green pastures and cows. At the age of thirteen, he shot his first film: "Total Carnage." Three years later, he moved to the United States to continue his education. The culture shock was acute. He completed high school in North Carolina and went on to study both Cinema Studies and English Literature at Oberlin College ('11).
Hilliard divides his time between documentary filmmaking and working as a cinematographer. His documentaries focus on international social issues, in particular children's rights. They are commissioned by non-profit organizations in order both to raise awareness and funds. This line of work has taken him from India and Mongolia to Rwanda and the Palestinian territories. As a cinematographer, Hilliard has worked on a number of short films, which have been selected for festivals and aired on public television. He is part of the production company "Art+Practice."
