KATHRYNE "KAT" GARRIDO
is a young Cuban-American visual storyteller who loves the art department and production design with all her heart.
She grew up right outside Charlotte, North Carolina and is currently in her senior year of college at UNC School of the Arts: School of Filmmaking in Winston-Salem, North Carolina where she is currently pursuing her BFA in production design for film. She will graduate in May of 2023.
She has worked in many different areas of the art department on the east coast and has also production designed many independent films as well as music videos all over the United States and as far out as Berlin, Germany.
In her most recent venture, she set decorated a horror feature film for Hulu/20th Century Digital set to release in fall 2023. It just recently world premiered at SXSW in Austin, Texas this past March.
She is well-versed in the Adobe Creative Suite, SketchUp/Layout, plenty of experience with stage shows as well as on-location shooting, budgeting, breakdowns, and more. Experienced with prop house etiquette in the US as well as internationally.
Known to have great communication skills and will work quickly and efficiently to get the job done. A fantastic multitasker and loves working in teams as well as independently,
She also has a lot of hands-on experience with construction, miniatures, sewing, prop fabrication and
stop-motion fabrication. A human swiss army knife.
Q&A w/ myself:
Favorite food? easy, sushi.
Favorite coffee shop drink? easier, chai tea latte.
Favorite movie? hard. Between Harold & Maude and Punch-Drunk Love. (guilty pleasure is a tie between
Dude, Wheres my Car? and 17 Again)
What kind of music do you listen to? I have a deep love for all types of folk music. American folk, indie folk, folk-rap, French folk, Ethiopian folk...you name it. Bob Dylan is currently my phone's lock screen. Catch me blasting Cat Stevens while cruising down the highway.
