Welcome

Hello, my name is Kai Yost!

I am a recent graduate from The University of Georgia, Class of 2020. I recieved degrees for a B.A. in Film Studies and an B.A. in Entertainment and Media Studies. Additionally, I received a Certificate in New Media from the New Media Institute at Grady College, and minored in Studio Art with a focus on photography and videography at the Lamar Dodd School of Art.

As a student at The University of Georgia, I have had the unique opportunity to work on several short films and creative projects with the goal of crafting dynamic media. My priority is always to put the story first, and to make sure that the workplace is a productive and creative environment.

I have strong leadership skills and a strong desire to help others in every aspect of my work, which is bolstered by my organizational skills and ability to take initiative to solve problems.

I produce, shoot, and edit digital video in order to create dynamic content for online audiences. I specialize in narrative fiction and short documentary production. Additionally, I work as a Production Assistant for production offices and on set. In my free time, I create my own content with the goal of writing and directing film.

Aside from my work, I like to create art and watch and review films, including reading and relating to film theory. I also love to play D&D and read, and to take my dog on walks.

I specialize in video production, specifically in the aspects of cinematography and editing. My strong leadership and ability to previsualize projects are valuabel assets to any film crew. Additionally, I am organized, with the skills to work as a script supervisor and production assistant both on set and in the office for creative and dynamic media.
