An Overview

Kimvoynarbiopic3

I’m a highly creative writer, editor, visual artist and producer with over two decades of experience across art, writing, tech and film. I was a film critic, film festivals editor and frequent juror, panelist and moderator on the international film festival circuit for a decade, writing for Cinematical, Movie City News, Indiewire and Variety. I am the on-air co-host for The Daily Buzz, a public radio program and podcast that broadcasts from the Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, Cannes Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival. In addition to being known for in-depth critiques of films, I have a well-established history of writing about feminist issues, access and diversity across pop culture, film and tech.

Six years ago I shifted over to film production, making my short film “Bunker” (which I wrote, produced and directed) and then working for three years for Wizards of the Coast founder Peter Adkison, helping him build his film production company and producing many projects for his company.  Three years ago I decided to realign my focus more on my own art, and co-founded WonderTek Labs, a boutique 360/XR content and consulting firm; in 2016 we produced and directed one of the first ever 360 3D stereoscopic music videos, for Seattle indie music legends The Posies. We are currently working with Live Nation act Super Geek League on a live-streaming in-show video integration for their Hallucination Engine show in NYC and are in early stages of development on several other creative projects.

The backbone of our consulting business is 360/VR event producing for film, music and art festivals. Current and recent fest and enterprise space clients include Seattle International Film Festival, Tacoma Film Festival, Harlem International Film Festival, deadCENTER Film Festival, Oxford Film Festival and Capitol Hill Block Party, Fest Forums and Pike Electric. We’ve also consulted for some of the leading names in the VR space, including Dr. Tom Furness (“the grandfather of virtual reality”), Virtual World Society, Brett Leonard and Scott Ross (Virtuosity VR), and Furious M (producers of groundbreaking 360 episodic narrative “Defrost.” You can learn more about my company at the WonderTek Labs website.

I love pioneering on the bleeding edge where music, film and art intersect with emerging tech. There’s nothing more fun for me than working with smart, passionate, deeply creative humans who love getting their hands dirty, deep-thinking and getting experimental as we play, explore and shape together new ways for audiences to experience story, art, music and tech.
