When ALMOST LIVE! debuted in 1984, it had several writers, more than a few cast members, a full studio crew – and plenty of critics.
But it had only a single field camera guy. But what a guy! A guy gifted enough to carry the load. His name? Mike Boydstun.
He’s far more than a guy with a camera. He’s a director, producer, editor, sound designer, lighting specialist, location planner – but most of all, a storyteller. He was the very first director of photography for Disney’s Bill Nye the Science Guy show. And for Biz Kids on PBS. He’s been the longtime senior producer for Miramar Productions, and much, much more. He’s been nominated for Emmys, Grammys, you name it. Mike is amazing, opinionated, musically-inclined – and one-of-a-kind. And he’s extremely fun-loving. He puts the ‘boy’ in Boydstun.
