As a Filmmaker, once I feel I have found a concept, sometimes snapshot sometimes planned and am happy with the symmetry, I often emerge endowed with a profound mystical feeling while all applied mathematics, the infinite capacity of the cell's nucleus - they're all exploding inside my brain. Finally, my skin becomes transparent, my blood begins to turn a thin watery hue until the light of the sun streaming in the window passes entirely through me. At last, having evolved into pure spiritual energy, nothing remains of my existence except a pile of show reels, stacks of proposals, thousands of slides and digital images, a cell phone, a computer and perhaps a cold beverage. KLINE


​My introduction to the film industry began in the early 80’s in New York City as a Production Assistant for Murray Bruce Productions (EUE Screen Gems). Eventually, I worked my way up to Production Coordinator, Location Scout and Stills Photographer. During the summer seasons, I worked as a River Guide and Photographer on Grand Canyon and Alaskan River Rafting adventures as well as a Professional Scuba Diver in Hawaii. 

​I transferred to Los Angeles in the late 80’s and started working in the camera department as a freelancer in the motion picture and film industry as a Loader/Clapper. I worked my way up to First Assistant Camera/Focus Puller working on 35/16mm worldwide comm
​​ercials, music videos, feature films and documentaries which extended into the mid to late 90’s. I ventured out on my own and started KLINEDOG FILMS international in the late 90’s and worked as a Director of Photography, Cameraman and Operator on Nature/Natural History, Stock Footage and Documentary projects.  In addition, at present I freelance as a Stills Photographer on worldwide Corporate Meetings and Incentive programs and as a Photo Journalist for ABC NEWS. Currently, I have several in-development projects.

Where does the KLINEDOG come from?  My nickname growing up in Phoenix, Arizona was DOG - add KLINE and you can imagine the fun others had.  The outline of the dog logo is a Pictograph in Canyon de Chelly, Arizona.  The scene depicts dogs chasing deer - except one who seems to be doing all the talking - that's my logo! KLINE
