Kathryn Robinson

My career began working for two years on active duty in the US Navy. After serving in the U.S. Navy, I built a career as an Investigative Operations Analyst at the FBI. However, I always knew my curiosity around film making would drive me to alter my career path. My love for the movie The Matrix inspired me to become an editor and propelled my start in post-production. In my opinion, film editing is the most powerful form of documentary storytelling. This format provides a creative space for those who are passionate about telling a story and confident in taking calculated risks. I also believe the teams dedicated to telling stories by way of documentaries care about the message beyond its monetary value. I am keen to follow my dream of becoming a film editor and working on movies that speak truth to power. I am flexible and willing to contribute as a key member of the documentary team.

Driven by his own food story, Kevin discovers the untold stories of food and the people who make it. Kevin has made films ever since he was eight, but it wasn’t until he turned 11 that food entered his consciousness. Obesity plagued his childhood and when a nurse warned him that he was on his way to type two diabetes and daily insulin injections, he was scared straight. He began to change his ways. He exercised daily until butter seeped out of his pores, and learned about food the best way he knew how: through his camera. By the time he graduated from UCLA, Kevin had ventured across five continents, filmed countless food entrepreneurs and won film awards across the world. Currently he's creating TASTE, an independent short form food documentary series.

Kennedy McGilvery

I'm a senior at the University of Missouri, studying Documentary Journalism and minoring in Digital Storytelling and Sociology. I am a storyteller. I use my hands and camera to tell stories that words could never capture. I've always been drawn to long forum journalism; 90 seconds never felt long enough to capture a story, making documentary journalism the perfect outlet for my creative ideas and career goals. I've been a newsroom editor for the past year at the Columbia Missourian, where I produce microdocs and edit video assets for the newspaper. I'm dedicated to gaining experience and growing my abilities as a documentarian. I'm a passionate creator with an eye for detail and a willingness to go the extra mile for the small details. Journalism opened me up to the world of video editing and has motivated me to keep learning more within the field and different techniques and skills to master my craft as an editor.
