Director Biography - Kaylie Waite

Kaylie Waite is no stranger to the film community. She has 7 years of experience, her first role being an infected little girl in the film REMISSION at the age of 8. Later, she landed the emotionally charged lead role in SKELETON DANCE as a child being raised in an abusive home. She enjoys her time on set meeting new cast and crew as well as watching how a film comes together. Kaylie has learned about acting, costumes, makeup, props, being an assistant, and at age 11 she wrote her own script TAKE ONE. At age 15, she directed her first film and wants to learn all of the pre production and post production that comes with it. She is excited to share her experience with her fellow students at the Arts & Humanities school.
