Kristin R. Thomas has accomplished more within the state lines of North Carolina than what often takes many filmmakers within the Los Angeles city lines years to accomplish. From a young film buff to a self-taught film student, with a strong appetite for knowledge, it's no wonder that Thomas now calls the shots at her own production company.

After attending Appalachian State University, Thomas got a job at Cutters Production as a Production Assistant and the Executive Assistant. While working at Cutters Productions, Kristin knew her heart belonged to film. In faith, Thomas quit her job and the next day started working as a Producer for a feature film.  Not looking back, Kristin Thomas started producing Indie films and specializing in branding opportunities as a funding source for entertainment projects, events, theatrical plays, and print media.  Thomas is currently the Creator, Executive Producer, and Host for the LGBTQ+ media outlet, “Trip Out TV." 


Kristin continues to provide production services for Hollywood Movie Studios,  Independent Producers, and Web Creators worldwide.
