Kindrid Parker is a writer, award-winning filmmaker, and founding member of San Francisco-based production company Last Wave Film. He grew up in Columbia, South Carolina writing stories and experimenting with Super 8 film, video tape, and audio recording. He made his way to San Francisco in 1992 and began his creative career publishing fiction and experimental prose through a number of literary journals, including the post-punk, rogue publication 3am and the half-century-old surrealist cornerstone The Walrus. His voice as a writer and longtime experimentation with film naturally met, and in early 2007, Kindrid founded his production company, Last Wave Film. The films he's written and directed have been on view at various mainstays of the Bay Area filmmaking community: The Pacific Film Archive/Berkeley Art Museum, The Artists' Television Access, The Knew Nothing, Ark 221 Gallery, The Cafe Revolution, The Space Gallery, and many others. His most recent film, Act III, Scene 1, a contemporary revision of William Shakespeare's Hamlet, won City Shorts Film Festival and is currently receiving outstanding public reception on the festival circuit. As a working producer and assistant director, Kindrid is also a vital contributor to countless Bay Area productions. Informed by his background as a writer, his films are literary, visceral, hypnotic, and fitful; operating according to the rhythms and logic of the id. Kindrid is currently in pre-production on his feature film Trubble, an impressionistic coming of age allegory about children in the deep south.
