As a business leader, Kimball has celebrated accomplishments over his two decades of work with some of the most well-known brands in the world.
After a time as a print artist and writer, Kimball transitioned to authoring comic books, co-creating the well-received Shadow Agents series which was distributed to the United States and UK. During several years writing in the commercial and industrial production worlds, he authored a variety of short and feature film scripts as well as television pilots, some produced and others languishing in development. In 2003 Kimball wrote, produced and directed the suspense thriller Revolver which received film festival praise and positive reviews from screenings in New York and Los Angeles. In 2006 Kimball wrote, produced and directed Samaritan, which received strong reviews and also marked the first example of long-form filmmaking using non-tape or film-based media. In 2012 Kimball hosted and produced the first episode of Left, Right & You – a Web documentary series exploring the two-party political system in America. The episode was shot on locations in New York City, the Valley of Fire in Nevada, Las Vegas and Kauai, Hawaii. For Left, Right & You Kimball received the second of his Telly awards for direction. In 2014 he began work on Nobody But Us with the intent of exploring the meaning of the famous Police song, Miss Gradenko, by which the story is inspired. A collaboration with skilled Cinematographer Lance Kaplan, Nobody But Us was shot using RED camera technology at resolutions of 4K and above. The film was completed in early 2015 and has been shared at festival venues across the United States.
As of 2016, Kimball is at work on various creative projects and continues to contribute his passion to leading teams in the business world.
Continuing his work on the episodic Web series, Left, Right & You, Kimball explores the two-party political system in America. Featuring views from leading educators, political experts and the voting public, the series aims to explore the psychology behind our acquiescence and asks if we can do better.
Currently in the script stage, Untitled is in many ways the most personal project Kimball has ever created and will also be the most complex story he's written to date. Taking place on locations across the globe and exploring the dangers and intricacies present in today's unsafe world, the project will be episodic and far-reaching.
Exploring his life-long fascination with cars, Kimball muses about his favorite machines and explores the compromises in choosing a ride perfect for daily use and for performance track driving.
Inspired by the song Miss Gradenko by the Grammy-winning band, The Police, Nobody But Us is a short film which explores a lover’s triangle in which not everyone is what they seem. A modern-day heiress aligns forces with her lover as she schemes to put an abrupt end to the abuses suffered via her current husband. In so doing, she sets in motion a swift decent into evil for the lover and a quiet coup d’etat for herself. Following the song’s mysterious lyrics as written by Stewart Copeland, Nobody But Us is a dramatization which imagines what the song might be about. The film’s dialogue is made up nearly entirely of these lyrics, the story told in sequence as the lines from the song are attributed to characters within the drama. The result is a telling which offers an homage to the original work while also creating characters that live outside the lines of the tune.
