Well hello there!
I’m Melissa Kyle, and I am a freelance Producer and Assistant Director for hire. I currently reside in sunny Los Angeles, CA.
I have a BFA in Film & TV from Tisch School of the Arts, NYU, and began my career in the art department (The Dictator; The Bourne Legacy) followed by working in production offices for the ABC show Pan Am (RIP) and 30 Rock (yes, it was awesome).
From there I moved into set PA work on shows like CBS’s Blue Bloods, FX’s The Americans, and movies like The Amazing Spiderman 2, Focus, 10,000 Saints, and John Wick. I also produced and AD’d short films whenever I had the opportunity.
In 2015, I made the leap and moved to Los Angeles. I began working in the development world at Benaroya Pictures (Lawless, Margin Call) as an executive assistant to Mr. Benaroya, as well as office managing. About a year later, in 2016, I moved over to Warner Bros Studios as a Creative Development Administrator for Greg Silverman, President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production, Motion Pictures.
In 2017, I returned to my roots of producing and ADing. The last two years have brought me all over Los Angeles on a variety of music videos, short films, features, and branded content. I’ve also traveled across the country and back for projects I believed in and am always up for a new challenge.
In addition to working as a freelance AD and producer, I’m also part of a producing team - check out my company’s work with producing partners Madeleine Paul and Melissa Zeigler over at www.mightandmainmedia.com.
