If you haven’t heard of Kyle Predki, Kpredki to us Zoopers, I’m sure you will soon. Kyle is a recent graduate, but already has an amazing demo reel! His winning video ‘You’re No Dummy’ really encompasses the #DreamBig concept. From the fun animation style used in the video, to the adventures of traveling abroad, who wouldn’t want to save money on textbooks after watching the video?
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I studied film and animation in college and recently graduated. Since then I have been working on staff and as a freelancer for different studios around Boston.
What’s your favorite project you’ve ever worked on?
One of my favorite projects I have worked on is something that I have done recently, I was brought on board at a studio to do some 3d character animation for a commercial spot on television.
As a contest winner, do you have any tips for other filmmakers trying to score their first win?
For the young filmmakers looking to score their first win, I suggest always take the time to think about the message you need to convey. This is most important because it shapes the rest of the creative process. A second thing is to always have an inspiration behind each project. Good ideas rarely arise from thin air. Lastly, work with a good team. I had some talented people help with the writing and designing, and the entry wouldn’t have done so well without them.
