Kyle’s mission statement reads:
“My mission is to bring a slice of the film and entertainment industry to Pottstown. While growing up, I was always fascinated by film and TV, but I often felt the absence of a substantial presence without having to venture to major cities. I wished for earlier exposure to the possibilities in this field. I sensed a geographical disadvantage, yet having grown up in Pottstown and subsequently moved to a major city, I take pride in my roots. Pottstown is a remarkable town with immense potential and exceptional individuals. I aspire to contribute and cultivate a cultural environment that can fuel the town’s progress, allowing anyone interested to dream more vividly imagine new possibilities.”
