My name is Kyle Sklenar. I am a Los Angeles based story teller. At the age of nine I shot my first short film, and I'm sure the tape can still be found sitting in a suburban attic next to a box of legos and an old baseball mitt. Since then, I have written, directed, and produced eight Short Films, of which three are award winning; The One P.C., The HIT, and The Love Note... (And one that wasn't so good). The Love Note won Best Picture at Georgia State University's Campus Movie Fest, and went on to compete nationally in CMF Los Angeles. My most recent film, RISE UP, caught viral attention on Facebook, amassing 30k views in three days. My films and commercial work are both driven by my love for story. I have directed viral music videos; shot for over seventy brides; and worked with clients such as Harvard University, Mercedes Benz, CBS, OnceWed Magazine, Richmont Graduate University, and #LiveFully Blog.
I am a student of film, and trust that I always will be. I am an avid Braves fan, but almost exclusively because I'm an avid Atlanta fan. I like to know and be known, and I believe the most powerful tool someone can wield is their honesty and integrity.
I challenge you to never get too big for your britches, always say "Yes ma'am", remember that fame and money are never the end goal, and no one is perfect so don't expect your art to be.

Currently, I'm writing a feature and in post on a short.
