Who They Are:
KT! Eaton is the mastermind behind FLYiNG WARTHOGS FiLM. In her own words KT! describes the mission of FLYiNG WARTHOGS FiLM aptly as the creation of “unique motion pictures with heart.” FLYiNG WARTHOGS FiLM, under KT!’s masterful and breaking-out-of-the-box direction, specializes in expert-caliber consultation, collaboration, and creation of films, documentaries, music and educational videos, and media spanning both public and private sectors.
KT! wants to “keep mass communication personal.” After years on the road and rail, she has brought her skill and energy back home to the Shenandoah Valley. While keeping Bath County as home-base, KT! continues to travel and work on projects all over the world. One of her most recent feats, however? A project for Staunton’s own Downtown Development Association!
KT! seeks collaboration and long-term relationships in all aspects of her work and has built these relationships with other area creative professionals since the welcome return of FLYiNG WARTHOGS FiLM to Virginia.
How did you get here?
KT! spent her professionally formative years becoming an expert in everything from pyrotechnics to handling cinema-quality filming and editing equipment. Alongside her formal education at Wells College in Aurora, NY, KT! has honed her diverse skills leading and supervising numerous film projects as a creative producer, director of photography, and special effects technician in locations spanning the globe. She also managed to accomplish every child’s dream by riding the rails with Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus as a pyrotechnician.
KT! can often be found roaming the streets of Staunton, filming equipment in tow…if you are lucky perhaps you will catch a glimpse of her!
