Interim Managing Director & NFFTY Co-Founder
The son of an acclaimed deaf actor, Seattle native Kyle Seago was raised with a visual eye and a creative mind. In high school, Kyle’s film projects earned awards at international film festivals. After helping co-found NFFTY, Kyle traveled to Los Angeles to attend film school at Loyola Marymount University. Shortly after, enticing job offers from MTV took him down the path of reality television, where he worked as a producer on shows such as CW’s “America’s Next Top Model” and MTV’s “The Phone.” As a TV producer, Kyle has produced over 30 hours of primetime television and traveled to Italy, Morocco, Greece, and Macau for international shoots. Since moving his home base back to Seattle, Kyle has produced commercials for Microsoft, including international campaigns for Internet Explorer 9, Windows 8, and Microsoft Surface. His recently completed projects include music videos for Alex Clare’s chart-topping song “Too Close” and Seattle-bred hip-hop artist Sol and a diverse range of short and long-form documentary films.
