On the set of Cold, a short film by KJ Hamilton (Kirsty) 2018. DOP Chris Matthews, First AC David Chan.

Kirsty writes, directs, acts, voices and teaches acting and has produced short films.

As an experienced and passionate actor herself, she has a talent for facilitating actors to be at their very best.

Kirsty is happiest working in a collaborative manner as a director with the specific talents of cast and crew alike.

Kirsty’s strengths lie in her focused intensity, emotional vulnerability and ability to maintain a sense of humor.

Kirsty writes about healing. She makes films that bring attention to the struggle, adversity, talents, and quiet triumphs of women, girls and those who are disempowered or hurt by exclusive, restrictive systems and privileged perspectives. She wants to shine a light on the negative effects of abusive environments, and the hardship and challenges that poverty creates.
