Personal Profile

David Kuskie

David Kuskie is from a small town in Western Nebraska. His interest in film developed at an early age. Two important events in his young life were receiving a Talkboy for Christmas and his parents getting a video camera. The Talkboy allowed him to make his own radio shows, and the video camera allowed him to start making movies. He started singing and acting in church and school productions at an early age. In high school, Kuskie was approached to program the school's public access channel. This eventually led to employment with the local radio station. At the radio station, he was a part-time board operator. His responsibilities included running the board during live remote broadcasts, djing, and so forth. Kuskie was heavily involved in speech, drama, and choir through the school and the community during his high school years. After graduating from high school, he enlisted in the United States Navy for six years as an Electrician's Mate. Kuskie was able to see many unique locations including countries in the Caribbean, South America, and Asia. He served onboard the USS George Washington, and lived in Japan for two years. Following his Naval commitments he returned to radio and community theatre for a year. He worked as a Production Assistant with duties including writing, recording, editing, and producing commercials. He became the President of the Main Street Players community theatre organization and performed in productions ranging from Shakespeare to Check Please to The Odd Couple and A Christmas Story. He made his stage-directing debut with The Odd Couple (in which he also played the role of Oscar Madison). He started volunteering at film festivals at the 2010 Cheyenne International Film Festival where he was a digital projectionist. At the 2011 Love Your Shorts Film Festival Kuskie, who was volunteering as a digital projectionist once again, came up with the idea of making a documentary about the festival.
