Kip Pastor always enjoyed storytelling and wanted to influence how people saw the world. In 2009, he founded Pasture Pictures to do just that. Having traveled and explored extensively, Kip finds inspiration in places outside of his comfort zone. After graduating cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania, he worked at a major law firm in Washington, DC, the Wildlife Conservation Society in Vientiane, Laos, as an international trade consultant in Mexico City, and in Maryland doing development and post-production work for a History Channel show. Kip received his Masters in Fine Arts degree from the American Film Institute, and then became the Program Manager at Meaningful Media in Los Angeles.
As a storyteller, Kip is an award-winning filmmaker. He has directed, produced and written commercials, short films, documentaries, and music videos that have played on television and worldwide, including In Organic We Trust, Life on Earth and Judie & Yolanda. He’s written articles for the Miami Herald, Christian Science Monitor, Huffington Post, and TakePart Media, and he’s appeared on ABC7 News, Bravo TV, NPR, and many others. Kip believes that filmmaking is the most effective medium to disseminate big ideas and affect real change.

At Pasture Pictures, we are committed to creating narrative and documentary films that inspire change and increase understanding. We believe that filmmaking is the most effective medium to disseminate big ideas. Our environment shapes us and gives us inspiration. What we surround ourselves with, defines us. As such, Pasture Pictures is a carbon neutral company. Not only do we off-set the carbon footprint that our companies creates, but we off-set the carbon emissions from each one of our productions. We reuse everything that we can, we recycle the rest, and we promote a Zero Waste community. Glass pickle jars are in our cupboards as cups, hybrid vehicles or bicycles are in our parking spots, and GoogleDocs are our backup copies.
