I had the pleasure of working with Mickayla to film a promotional video for my debut album. As a musician, storytelling is at the core of what I do, and I wanted to ensure that my narrative was authentically captured. From the moment we began, Mickayla treated my story like it was her own. Her goal throughout the project was always to get to the heart of the story, and she masterfully captured this through her beautiful videography. She is a consummate professional, a passionate filmmaker, and an incredible creative caretaker for any project. I can’t wait to collaborate with Mickayla again

Working with Mickayla was the best thing I could have ever done to get my business seen in a way that is authentic to its core. It was so FUN and felt effortless. I am amazed at how effectively she was able to capture my desires for the video project - especially because I didn't think I was being clear enough with my vision.  Her level of professionalism and attention to detail put me at complete ease the entire day of shooting. She listened with such care and compassion to create something unique and genuine that was perfectly illustrated in every aspect of the video. 

Overall, I am so pleased that I had the opportunity to work with Mickayla. She has significantly helped me to share aspects of my business with the world through social media and up-leveled my website.  I cannot wait to do more projects with her in the future!

It’s one thing to create a beautiful film, it’s another to capture the heart of a story. Mickayla effortlessly achieves both. She is a natural storyteller. Her technical abilities speak for themselves, but what is of real value is her ability to capture the emotion and passion behind the brand and person. She gently guided me through the filming process and was able pull the story from me. In other words, I didn’t know how to deliver the story…she did. She made it easy for me to be myself and share. She then instilled confidence that we were on the right path. Her gift to you is her intuition. She instinctually knows how to connect viewers to the visual world you want to share. She knows how to create a visual story that people will resonate with and care about. She truly invests in your unique brand by holding a vision of the highest caliber and then delivers an outstanding product. To top it all off, she genuinely wants you to succeed. You can sense that what lights her up is shining a spotlight on you, despite your lack of confidence.

For so long, I was playing small. I lacked certainty to share my story with the world. She helped me achieve my goal and then some.

You won’t regret it. Book her while she’s still available.

A little bit about me...

I am a driven creator, a passionate storyteller and a lover of genuine authenticity in every form.
It is my distinct pleasure to capture each individual story with the utmost care and respect; to show the world what you have to offer through the beauty and grace of a lens.
Quality is very important to me.  I will not take a project on unless I know I can commit 100% and give it my all.  
I am a wife, a mother of 2 boys, a sister, a daughter, a friend, an ally and an excited participant of humanity.
I am eager to work with you and look forward to our mutual growth and expansion​.
With Love,

Mickayla’s work speaks for itself. Her attention to detail, and her ability to capture the essence of a moment is outstanding.  We had the pleasure and privilege, of working closely with Mickayla when she created a short story (mini documentary) of an event that took place over the course of several days. Throughout the project she was attentive, hard working, professional and extremely thoughtful.  Her kind and warm-hearted personality was genuine and delightful.  Her beautiful story telling surpassed our wildest expectations and still brings tears to our eyes after many viewings.  We highly recommend the exceptional work of this very talented woman. 

Thank you Mickayla!

Experience

In university, I was involved with over 20 short films, with credits such as director, assistant director, PA and Sound Technician.

Moving into my career, my expertise evolved to promotional video content.  

I worked with a diverse range of people, products and stories. The videos we produced consisted of short film/advertisements, short-form documentaries, PSAs, social media content and everything in-between.

Making the move to become a freelance director came from the lack of female representation in the film industry. I believe feminine energy is needed now more than ever to balance the scales.

With 9 years of filming experience under my belt, I am confident we can get to the heart of your story and spread your message 

to the world.

Mickayla Pyke is one of the most visionary filmmakers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is totally dedicated to her craft. I have greatly enjoyed working with her in a director/producer relationship on several projects. I can say wholeheartedly, seldom will I ever have the chance to collaborate with a more genuinely kind and talented person. She weaves so much heart and soul into every story she captures.

There’s one else like Mickayla. She’s uniquely in tune with the emotional nuance of her work, which gives everything she does a distinct, irreducible touch. I’ve seen her work long, stressful days, and she’s never once lost sight of those essential subtleties of her work. She’s an artist, a generous collaborator, an expert technician, and one of the most dedicated people I know.
