KIMBY CAPLAN (Director of Photography)
attended the University of Colorado at Boulder where she was exposed to the experimental and personal filmmaking of Stacy Steers, Patti Bruck, Stan Brakhage, and Phil Solomon. She went on to make four experimental short films, three of which received a Goldfarb award which is the highest honor possible as determined by faculty. One of these tied for a Golden Glove (best student film as determined by the student body). This is a record as yet unbroken; and these four films (alongside two others) now reside in a permanent collection, in the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ Film Archive at the Mary Pickford Center in Los Angeles, California.After graduating with a BFA in 1999, Kimby moved to Park City, Utah, where she volunteered at the Sundance Film Festival and worked as a ski instructor at Deer Valley Ski Resort. After several years of being inspired by the film scene at Sundance, Kimby enrolled in the Cinema-Television program at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. For her master’s project at Southern Methodist University she made the documentary film, LISTEN. LISTEN chronicled, on a personal level, the journey her parents took with Doreen Pollack (an audio-verbal therapist to the profoundly deaf). LISTEN went on to win a first place at an Academy accredited festival, The Black Maria, and received a 2005 Student Academy Award (Bronze medal in the documentary category). Excerpts have aired on ABC, NBC, and PBS; in addition to touring the country and showing at museums and universities across the country. Most remarkably,the film was at the crest of a wave of public interest in the world of the Deaf and the hearing impaired. This interest has led to increased information and media attention to cochlear implant technology, and the Deaf Pride that is now most evident at Gallaudet University (the nation’s premiere university for the culturally deaf) in Washington, DC.

Kimby Caplan graduated from the American Film Institute in Los Angeles, specializing in cinematography. She continues to work on experimental films, documentaries and narratives that she feels will contribute in positive ways to the advancement of those who are marginalized.
