No two days are alike for Tight Line Media founder Kris Millgate. Some days she camps out in an edit bay creating award-winning films. Other days she hikes into the wilderness to collar grizzly bears, count bald eagles and catch native fish all with camera in tow.
Millgate graduated from University of Utah with a degree in broadcast journalism then worked for several TV stations for a decade before settling in Idaho. Millgate recognized the meshing of the mediums in 2006 and made the bold move to multimedia with her production company Tight Line Media.
Idaho Fish and Game honored Millgate with Outstanding Service for Wildlife Conservation in 2013. She placed in National Geographic’s Top 10 film competition in 2014. Three of her films toured with Wild and Scenic Film Festival in 2013, 2014 and 2018.
Millgate is a leading member of Outdoor Writers Association of America. She’s a life member of Trout Unlimited and a commissioner for Idaho Falls Parks and Recreation. She’s also a fly fisher, trail runner and youth hockey coach. In every pursuit, Millgate’s determination is relentless.
