WELCOME TO MY PORTFOLIO
Imagine. Envision. Make happen.
I am Kyle McKenzie, a North-West based filmmaker, producer, sound artist, actor and videographer. I started life as a freelance video artist in the Summer of 2019 and have been fortunate enough to work on a variety of projects.
I am a graduate of Lancaster University, completing both a BA and MA with honours in Film Studies. After years of experience studying the art of filmmaking and learning about the components that create an effective film, I decided to begin my journey as a filmmaker.
I have experience in directing, producing and editing a range of different content. I can be hired for trailers, music videos, social media promos, behind-the-scenes coverage and more.
I am available for hire for any videography work or other film related opportunities. For queries or hiring details please visit the Contact Me page or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
How We Live Now
A series of short documentaries created in affiliation with Litfest. I was given the opportunity to direct and edit six short documentary films. These films explore the lives of members of the local (Lancaster/Morecambe) community. Each of them have a story to tell about how their lives changed because of the COVID-19 pandemic and how they adapted.
The films were screened at a live premier event held by Litfest online during the pandemic. The films are followed by a short Q&A with myself and several of the stars of the films.
Green Lancaster in Copenhagen
This is a typical example of videography work I can offer. For this film, I traveled to Copenhagen, Denmark to document the journey of a sustainability team from Pendle College, Lancaster University, on behalf of Green Lancaster. This promotional video was filmed, produced and edited by me.
Escape2Make Interview Advert
An advert that I put together for Lancaster-based charity, Escape2Make, to showcase a range of interviews that were conducted by young people. The video was shot entirely by young people using iPhones and I edited the footage together to create this advertisement for the full interviews.
Lancaster Music Festival 2019
A highlight video that I filmed during the Lancaster Music Festival 2019 that was used by the event for social media promotion. One of the most vibrant and exciting times of the year for Lancaster residents- I was able to capture the city transform into a musical haven. Edited by Chris Wright and Directed by Lucy Reynolds & Chris Wright. Music by The Balkanics.
Unbelievable - Duncan McKenzie [Music Video]
A music video shot and edited by myself, featuring music by Duncan McKenzie, a talented, emerging musician, who also happens to be my brother. This is a music video in its most basic form- and I have many ideas for more complex projects in the future.
