Michael Coen
Video Producer
Boulder, CO

Michael Coen is a video producer based in Boulder, Colorado. A classic story of ditching the corporate world to pursue his passion for cinematography, travel, and storytelling, he now runs CoenFilm with his partner, Tabitha. Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Michael’s love of dive bars is surpassed only by his love of travel, and rarely experiences one without the other.

What’s it like living in Boulder?

Boulder is an exciting place to be because of how fast it's growing. Everybody wants to live there for obvious reasons. You can be in the mountains in basically zero minutes. The beer is pretty good too.

What gets you out of bed every morning?

Tabitha is a morning person so she usually gets bored and makes me get out of bed :) Just kidding (sort of). Honestly, I'm pretty driven by whatever project I'm working on and usually pushing myself to learn and become a better videographer. Jeb Corliss, a famous wingsuit athlete once said, "My time on this world is limited, but the things I can do with that time are not."  I try to remind myself every day that time is the most precious resource we have. Make the most of it.

When did you pick up videography?

When I was a kid, my friends and I would make silly videos with my parents' VHS camcorder. Fast forward to being an adult in a corporate job thinking, "what do I want to do with the rest of my life?" - I simply reverted back to what made me happy as a child.

Where’s your favorite place to travel to?

About three hours southeast of my hometown Portland... Bend, Oregon. Similar to Boulder, it has everything I love without the congestion of a larger city. You can rock climb at Smith Rock, Ski on Mt. Bachelor, enjoy some of the best breweries in Oregon and soak in that high desert air.

What’s next?

The cool part about videography is that it can take you to some amazing places. Looking ahead, I'm in the process of trying to grow my video production business with my partner, Tabitha, while balancing our shared desire to travel.
