KURT ENGFEHR - Creative Consultant
Kurt has worked in all areas of television and film production, including stints at HBO, MSNBC and National Video Center as a staff Avid editor. He has edited programs for Lifetime (The Ruby Wax Show), CBS (The Sports Illustrated for Kids Show), and music videos (Love Power performed by Ziggy Marley and the Muppets); he has also been a promo writer for ABC and HBO, and a stop-motion animator of a series of short films featuring Chernobyl, the guitar playing penguin. Kurt was senior editor on Michael Moore’s Emmy nominated show The Awful Truth (1999).
Kurt has recently won the American Cinema Editors Award for best documentary editing for his work on Bowling for Columbine (2002). The trophy is proudly displayed on the mantle above the fireplace, right next to the last award he won, a 3rd place Thanksgiving Day Bowling Tournament trophy from 1987.
Not being able to pry himself away from bowling, Kurt recently finished up work as co-producer and editor for A League of Ordinary Gentlemen (2004), a documentary about life on the professional bowling circuit which won the Audience Award at the 2004 SXSW Film Festival and which will soon be appearing at a movie theater near you. Kurt then decided he didn’t need any rest and worked on Michael Moore’s newest film Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004). It turned out ok.
