CinemaKC profile: Todd Norris

For 30 years, Todd Norris has devoted his life to mastering the art and craft of writing, directing, cinematography and editing. A seven-year stint as a projectionist at the Fine Arts Theatre & Video allowed him to see virtually every art film that played in Kansas City in the 1990's. After that, Norris began making a long string of award-winning short films including the internet sensation "Killing Michael Bay."

In 2005, he served as cinematographer on the film "First Date," which screened at the Sundance Film Festival. It also was one of only five American Films that played that year at the prestigious Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival in France. Since then, Norris has photographed several other projects by Kansas City filmmakers including Mitch Brian's "Rhubarb Pie" and the feature-length "Bonnie & Clyde vs. Dracula," directed by Tim Friend. Norris is also an Emmy Award-winning Promotions Videographer/Editor for NBC Action News. His latest film "Candy Apple Red," which he wrote and directed, is currently making the rounds at festivals across the country and is winning awards.
