Contributor Profile: Micah Trostle
Micah Trostle set up Trostle Films so that he could “create things that influence people to think diversely and live a life they take pride in.” His desire for people to think differently, more globally even, was ingrained in him from childhood as Micah grew up as a Third Culture Kid in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea, an island nation in the Pacific.
He remembers seeing “so much beauty, yet so much hardship intertwined.” That led him to use his love for film and photography to get started in “an initiative to help share stories around the globe of people that have their own dreams and hopes for their communities.”
Micah continues, “While Trostle Films specializes in storytelling, we highly enjoy commercial work, as it helps encourage the growth of local-oriented teams we work with. My dream is to move back to Papua New Guinea in the near future to impact business development and help to expand communities. Within the next 4 years, my aim is to open PNG's first stand-alone film school, so that other young people like myself can have the opportunity to use their gifts and find their callings.”
His mission is “to change the way people see the world through positive media.“
