RED THREAD STUDIOS
For over ten years, Red Thread Studios have connected films with their audiences through the development and implementation of strategic word of mouth (WOM) and release campaigns for a diverse range of 15 amazing films, including the arthouse success THE ORATOR, the multi award winning SAMSON & DELILAH, the international distribution game changer MARGIN CALL and the blockbuster PARANORMAL ACTIVITY.
We have also been privileged to work alongside some of Australia’s biggest arthouse Distributors including Footprint Films, Transmission Films, Paramount Pictures, Icon Film Distribution, Madman Entertainment, Umbrella Entertainment, Becker Film Group and Film Art Media.
After completing a Bachelor of Business degree in marketing and communication, Kylie joined the telecommunications industry and was responsible for developing and implementing innovative relationship marketing campaigns.
In 1997, Kylie moved into subscription television where for the next six years she continued to create innovative marketing campaigns for four major TV channels, working closely with several Hollywood Studios.
In 2006, she launched Red Thread Studios to help Australian film distributors connect their films with viewers through very successful below the line grassroots campaigns.
Following a tree change in 2011, Kylie became an official advisor to the Gold Coast Film Festival and in 2013, took over as Festival Director for the 2014 and 2015 festivals.
During this time, Kylie also worked as Production Manager on two documentary series and produced her first short film The Score. She was invited to sit on the judging panels for the prestigious Bond University Film and Television AWards (BUFTA) scholarship program, and final year student script assessment panels (Centrescreen).
In 2016, Kylie moved to regional Victoria and is collaborating with film practitioners on feature film projects.
