My passion for film is rooted in stories that strive to engage, challenge and entertain the viewer through social commentary, quests of the heart, and throwing a humorous light onto the quirkier themes inclusive of our wonderfully flawed human conditions.
SEMI - FINALIST
'Anti-Social' Placed as a Semi-Finalist in the top 3%, top 40 from 1400 short film screenplays.
ANTI-SOCIAL is a darkly comedic look at the dangers of social media, the allure of fame, and the power of guilt, told through the lens of magical realism.
'Anti-Social' pre-production is underway for a mid August shoot.
Canadian born and based in Los Angeles, Kyle Cassie has consistently challenged himself to push the limits and visually reinvent with his evocative storytelling voice since he jumped behind the camera to Direct. Kyle’s passion for film is rooted in stories that strive to engage and challenge the viewer through social commentary, quests of the heart and throwing a light onto the darker themes inclusive of our flawed human condition.
Kyle spent the last six years Directing and Producing in the visually stimulating world of beauty commercial content for a New York based global beauty brand shooting in LA, NYC, London and Berlin. As a “one man army” he’s also been cinematographer on many of his Directing projects. In addition, his love for the post production process keeps him seated as editor and colorist allowing him to tangibly carry his creative vision on his projects through to final delivery.
Although Kyle entered the industry as a working film/tv actor for over two decades, his true love for cinematic storytelling landed many years ago while he worked as a film editor and colorist on multiple feature films for theatrical and broadcast. His early articulate understanding of pacing, genre and the puppeteering of emotional beats earned him several award nominations for his work as an editor and a win as a producer.
His insatiable appetite for evocative storytelling and arresting visuals is currently being sated with the development of 2 feature film screenplays and the narrative short ‘Anti-Social’.
