About Kirk

Hello! I'm a Los Angeles based actor and filmmaker. I have a background in music and sound, and own a recording and post-production studio with vintage analog gear as well as digital recording and video editing capabilities. Over the years I've written several screenplays, recently did quite a bit of acting, and now branching out into directing and producing. I'm interested and meeting and working with fellow actors and film makers with a passion for good stories. Directors I admire range from Antonioni and Hitchcock to Scorsese and Lynch to Aronofsky and Nolan, but I also love a good comedy in the vein of Wilder or Allen, or even something downright heartwarming a la Capra. If it's honest on its own terms, I'm in. Let's work together!

My short film "A Singularity" (writer/producer/sound design/actor) was an official selection of eighteen festivals and won four awards. The trailer is posted here, and you can visit www.kleerbros.com/asingularity for more info.

I just completed the short film "Rope Trick" (writer/producer/director), a neo-noir drama starring SAF3 star Pia Lamberg and Magic Castle magicians Jackson Ridd and Steve Silverman, which is now beginning a festival run. So far it is an official selection of ten festivals and won five awards. I found my crew on Stage 32! Visit www.kleerbros.com/ropetrick for more info.

I love this community and I'm proud to be a part of it. Best wishes in all your creative endeavors! - Kirk
