Kirk Horton


Kirk Horton is a filmmaker based out of Boulder, CO. Kirk grew up in California, went to school in Vermont, and spent a year living in New York City before moving back West.

Kirk’s passion for storytelling stems from people changing their worlds, however big or small. He enjoys creating films that make people feel something authentic, and that’s his goal for every piece he works on. His work has taken him around the globe—from Chile to Rwanda and back again—working on productions with the Planet Earth II team, winning awards at film festivals, filming wild animals, and everything in between.

He’ll stop and pet just about every dog he sees, and he loves wearing wigs. He watches as many Liverpool FC games as he has the time for, and is currently trying to teach himself the harmonica. He’s not very good at it yet.
