Rex Sikes’ Movie Beat chats with filmmaker Kyle Olson
Just a few months ago, Kyle completed filming the pilot episode of a new webisode series he wrote and directed, called “Mouth to Mouth”. He is also occasionally called in to work pyrotechnics at Universal Studios, Hollywood for special events. Olson, who was born and raised in Milwaukee, went to school at Columbia College Hollywood upon first moving to California (after graduating High School from South Milwaukee High). Kyle also occasionally serves as a “Hollywood Insider” on 99.1 WMYX Milwaukee, calling in to dish the latest dirt in Hollywood.
Each summer, Olson returns home to Milwaukee to offer an annual “Summer Entertainment Camp” in his hometown. Last summer, the camp celebrated its third year running. As the camp continues to grow in popularity, a feature length documentary has just been released to show what happens on screen and behind the scenes during the camp. Kyle is also searching for new ways to expand the Entertainment Camp to bigger platforms, which include the possibilities of taking the program national next summer.
When he’s not working in television on an official ‘crew’ or working on his camp, Olson uses a creative way to stay working in the industry by serving as an instructor with the American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles. Here, Kyle teaches CPR, First Aid, and other life saving skills to high-profile clients, such as The Walt Disney Studios and Universal Studios Hollywood.
