Idaho Falls, Idaho–Tight Line Media, an Idaho based video and print production company, turns 10 in 2016. The Idaho Falls business established in 2006 when outdoor journalist Kris Millgate started covering stories for all media rather than just TV.
“She’s recording a part of America that we need to have forever in the libraries and I appreciate that she’s doing it so well,” says Karole Honas, TV anchor/reporter. “She’s one of the few that said, ‘This is what I’m going to do,’ and she’s done it. And she’s done it better than anyone else I know.”
Millgate’s outdoor coverage quickly grew from local reach to national appeal with stories about trapping grizzlies, restoring waterways and saving the West’s wild places.
“Kris tells stories that are important to her,” says Curtis Hendricks, Idaho Department of Fish and Game regional wildlife manager. “You quickly pick up on that when you work with her or when you watch one of her productions. She has an ability to tell stories or share information in a way the really resonates with people.”
Over the last decade, Tight Line Media also took on larger in-depth projects nationwide by producing a select number documentaries for non-profits like Trout Unlimited and government agencies like the U.S. Forest Service.
“The way it’s portrayed to the public is very catching to the eye. Makes you want to watch it,” says Louis Wasniewski, U.S. Forest Service hydrologist. “Every time I have something, I’m always talking to Kris. She has the pizazz, passion, everything a person would want to do their film especially natural resource type films.”
Tight Line Media holds true to its Idaho Falls basecamp by continuing to produce local content via East Idaho Outdoors magazine and Idaho Public TV while also showcasing local entities like Idaho Fish and Game and Idaho Falls Power.
Nationally, Tight Line Media holds high honors for outdoor ethics, conservation contributions and quality craftsmanship.
