Ted V. Mikels

Ted V. Mikels (born Theodore Mikacevich on 29 April 1929) is an American filmmaker of independent cult films. Mikels was also known for his home life, as he once lived with groups of women in a Glendale, California castle. During his grade school years, he was an amateur photographer who developed his own film in his bathtub. While in eighth grade, he was awarded his first acting role in a film that was to star William Powell, but World War II forced the cancellation of the production. By the age of fifteen, he was a regular stage performer, and developed an interest in filmmaking when he attempted to film his performances. "I figured out that you have to move the camera around to get different angles, and then you have to edit the film when you're done." In the 1950s, Mikels moved to Bend, Oregon, joined the Bend Community Players little theater group, and founded his own film production company. Soon, he began producing both educational documentaries, and short dramatic features. Additionally, as horseman, archery expert, Indian, and stuntman he contributed to the production of several Hollywood films made in Central Oregon.
