Kim Spurlock, who is in no way the inspiration for Livin’ The Dream’s Kit Scanlon, got her MFA from NYU’s graduate film program. After making her angsty short films, Kim won several prestigious awards including a Student Academy award for her thesis film, Down in No. 5. She has several feature films in development, including A Case of the Dismals, a noirish mystery that was one of 12 projects selected worldwide for the Venice Biennale Cinema College. Kim lives in Brooklyn and when not tearing it up as a writer and director, she enjoys zumba and tormenting her farmboy/amazing husband, Ben.
