In college, Mike Cohen thought he would work in broadcast news. He ran the University of Hartford student news broadcast, did news internships and took journalism classes.

Then Mike discovered corporate video and a job duping tapes at Ciné-Med. After a few months Mike was promoted to shooter editor, and has never looked back.

The first edit suites back in 1994 were Ampex ACE 25 edit controller based, with a Vista switcher, ADO and both 1" and MII machines.

As technology evolved to include in:sync Speed Razor, Media 100, and now Adobe Premiere, so too have Ciné-Med's services, business model, and Mike's responsibilities.

Now serving as production manager, Mike serves as project manager on numerous medical educational projects, including videos, websites and interactive Flash programs. Other responsibilities include attending several medical trade shows each year, and new business development.

A member of the COW since its inception, Mike is an active participant in the forums, a leader on the Business and Marketing forum and a COW blogger to boot.

When not shooting surgery or editing nursing videos, Mike likes vacationing in Cape Cod with his wife Rachael, watching movies, DIY projects around the house and cooking.


You can find Mike Cohen hosting in Creative COW's and TV & Movie Appreciation Forum.

Star Wars: How Much Is Too Much?

Star Wars: How Much Is Too Much?

When Disney announced that they would be making a new Star Wars movie every year for at least 10 years I was both excited and a bit skeptical. In 2012 when Lucas sold his company to Disney for $4billion, he included his outlines of Episodes VII, VIII and IX. But Disney and Co. decided to discard these stories and start over, also discarding the extended universe of comics and books that millions of SW fans had grown to love. Adding JJ Abrams to the mix was icing on the cake for SW fans who have become critical of SW. But Lawrence Kasdan was the saving grace, who wrote a script for VII that the original actors could get behind. So, how much Star Wars is too much?

What Star Wars Means To Me

What Star Wars Means To Me

Part of the criteria your future spouse must meet is a deep knowledge of the Star Wars Universe and you can quote most of the lines from at least one of the original Episodes, but how did the magic, the action, the VFX (before you even knew what VFX were and it was all oh so real!), and The Force, change you? Mike Cohen answers with what Star Wars means to him.
