Clint Kelly was born in 1988 in Columbia, MD. Ever since he saw “John Carpenter’s Halloween” when he was 5 years old, he has been hooked on horror films. In high school, Clint used to tape himself and his friends skateboarding with a Hi8 camcorder he got for his birthday. Clint then started to move away from skate videos to film backyard horror/comedy shorts with his friends and various kids who lived in his neighborhood. After graduating high school, he quickly realized that filmmaking was his A#1 passion and what he wanted to do for the rest of his life.Clint then befriended the late B-Movie maestro David A. Prior when he bought the DVD rights for Mr. Prior’s classic SOV movie, “Sledgehammer.” Clint worked on 3 David Prior movies (Deadliest Prey, Relentless Justice and Assassin’s Fury) before writting 2 scripts with Mr. Prior before his passing in August 2015. Clint also co-wrote and co-directed the short “M is for Munging”, which was a finalist in the “ABCs of Death 2” contest; a contest that had over 500 submissions. “M is for Munging” didn’t win the contest but it will be featured in the Magnet Film spin-off called “ABCs of Death 2.5.”
Clint met Chris Seaver in 2011 and ever since then they’ve been making movies together. Clint has worked as a cinematographer, writer, director, editor, grip and pretty much any other film job you can think of to cut his teeth in the world of filmmaking.
With Midnight Kids Production, Clint hopes to bring back the fun and feel of the movies he loves from the greatest decade of all time, the 1980s!
