Mika Johnson is an award-winning filmmaker, photographer and writer who directs music videos, commercials, and fiction and documentary films. Johnson teaches directing and documentary production at Prague Film School. He is also a member of MomenTech, a multiplatform experimental production studio based in New York City.
In 2011, Johnson began directing “The Amerikans,” a web series featuring three- to five-minute documentaries created in close cooperation with their subjects (www.theamerikans.org).
Johnson’s most recent projects include “Confessions of a Box Man,” a feature inspired by Kobo Abe’s “The Box Man,” and “Forever Professor,” a thirty-minute, award-winning film on a psychologist obsessed with time who has the largest collection of talking clocks in the world.
In 2016 Johnson will launch two new web series, one inspired by the works of Franz Kafka (see Resolutions) and another with writer Gabriel Paletz. The latter, titled “Lost & Found,” is inspired by tourists astray in Europe.
