Biography

Kyle Coffman is originally from the small town of Alton, Illinois. He spent 10 years living in Washington, D.C. as a residential property manager for luxury high rises, before moving to Los Angeles to become a filmmaker. Kyle has been in love with Hollywood nearly his entire life. Obsessed with horror movies as a teenager, he quickly began writing as soon as he learned how to type. Originally, a self-taught screenwriter, he completed his first screenplay by the age of 17. It was at this age that Kyle was presented with the opportunity to write, direct, and star in his first play about teenage adolescence and the consequences of drug abuse. The play was a hit launching Kyle into a whirlwind of writing screenplays and short stories. After moving to Los Angeles, he enrolled in a film production program at Los Angeles City College and completed various cinema classes. His horror short, “It’s In The Closet” was nominated for the college’s Fall 2014 Cinema Division Selected Films. Kyle’s short story, “Prequel to Hell’s Road” won 3rd place at the Los Angeles City College’s 17th Annual Writing Contest. Two of Kyle’s screenplays placed in the top 25% in The International Page Screenwriting Awards (an international screenwriting competition that receives over 5,000 screenplays each year) in 2012 and 2015. Kyle published his short horror novel Hell's Road, an adaptation from a screenplay he had previously written with the same title, in 2016.

In 2018, Kyle's short film Another Casserole was selected as on official selection in the Marina Del Rey Film Festival. 

Kyle is currently studying for his Bachelor of Arts in film production at California State University.
