About Us

It's not just about the equipment - it's knowing what to do with it.

We come ready to hit the ground running. We're there to bring another dimension of thinking to your team, to work with you, not “at” you.  And when we combine our expertise and creative experience with your insight and knowledge, we arrive at more than pretty pictures to ooh and aaah over, we arrive at meaningful results that often exceed expectations.

Our customer-focused approach allows for pleasurable and productive relationships to be formed. Just ask our return clients.

We are the ones to come to when you are trying to figure out what you need.  We do more than just 'shoot it'.  Conceptualizing and arriving at creative solutions is our strength.  Years of production experience, from New York to Los Angeles, means that we not only know what to do with challenges, we welcome them with the energy and know-how that it takes to arrive at exciting solutions.

Creative solutions - it's what we do!

Michael Podolski is a creative storyteller, director, writer, editor, and videographer.  After 10 years of working in the Los Angeles film and television industry and nine years of teaching production, screenwriting and animation at Penn State, Michael co-founded Blackbird Media Group in 2001.  Offering full-scale production services, Blackbird has allowed Michael to combine his broad talents, work experiences and educational background with a number of skilled production professionals to fill out crews that best serve each project. 

Blackbird has achieved a national presence, producing projects from coast to coast.   And it’s Michael’s love of the production process (from strategizing to delivery), along with the creative collaboration with his crews and his clients that fuels it all.   As a result, Blackbird has consistently produced award-winning video productions over the years, with an emphasis on satisfying the needs and honoring the trust that clients put into Blackbird.
