of the X-Nilo Show:
Kyle Justice is the creator and producer of The X-Nilo
Following is a brief personal history of Kyle's experience
which lead him to produce X-Nilo.
Kyle Justice was born in Portland, Oregon. From an
early age Kyle explored the medium of film and television at home with his twin brother,
Shawn, and father, Larry. This was quite a special family activity because all
shared a strong interest in this hobby. Shawn and Kyle both got quite involved
in video production as teenagers. At 14, they were featured on the syndicated
program "PM Magazine" for their involvement in video production.
Shawn and Kyle were interested in using their faith in Jesus Christ and their
experience in television to minister to others. They created a Christian music
videos show titled, "Solid Rock Videos" for the local cable systems in
Portland. Around this time they heard Dr. Donald
Chittick, a chemist by trade, speak at a seminar about the evidences for a Biblical
creation. After hearing Dr. Chittick, Kyle was very excited and desired to produce a
television show that presented these evidences.
While finishing his schooling at Trinity College in Deerfield, Illinois, Kyle worked for the
Moody Bible Institute (Chicago, IL) as their
Educational Studios Coordinator. This responsibility encompassed supervising the
audio and video studios for the school as well as being involved in corporate productions
for MBI. After three years of service there, Kyle moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia
to work for the Family Channel and MTM
Entertainment. While there he supervised the distribution of syndicated programs
such as "Rescue 911" and "America's Funniest Home
Videos." Part-time work included teaching video production at Regent University as an adjunct professor.
In the Spring of 1996, Kyle started to develop his idea for producing a kids
creation-based science show while watching "Bill Nye the Science Guy."®
Pooling resources from the Family Channel and Regent University, Kyle sought and found a
grant to produce the first X-Nilo episode. The show was completed in the
Spring of 1997 and soon after Kyle and his wife moved back to their home town of Portland,
Kyle has joined back up with his twin brother, Shawn, to produce additional episodes of X-Nilo, which will be shot this coming
summer. For over nine years Shawn has been operating Justice Productions, a
corporate video production company. Shawn's clients include such corporations as
Bank of America and Columbia Sportswear, for whom he produces corporate sales tapes and
Most recently Shawn and Kyle collaborated on a scenic video of waterfalls set to
soothing piano music. The waterfalls in the video feature those in the national
scenic area of the Columbia River Gorge. The relaxing video intertwines encouraging
Bible verses for meditation and reflection. The video is entitled "Waterfalls of the Columbia River George."
Two more videos are planned featuring the majestic cascade mountains in winter and the
fantastic beaches of Oregon.
