About me
Like Batman of the creative industry (but less surly and stoic), Kristian’s utility belt full of creative ideas and uncanny mental flexibility when it comes to storytelling comes from his unconventional childhood and years of experience fighting criminally boring conformity. Picking up a camera at an early age and starting his career at the iconic Dazed & Confused magazine in the publications seminal years set Kristian on a path that has been crammed with incredible opportunities within his beloved world of creativity. Seemingly a hard cat to pigeonhole, with his exploits as a photographer and film director, he has also worked extensively in the film, advertising and comic book industries on creative direction, writing and consulting. One thing is certain, Kristian has an uncanny ability to tell incredible stories. Kristian’s skill and dexterity for ideas has seen him working on blockbuster feature films, dreaming up branding for powerhouse film studios, writing global ad campaigns and even curating a giant comic book museum in China. With his innate passion for storytelling in its many facets, Kristian is always on the hunt for the opportunity to tell new immersive stories and stamp his uniqueness on the world (Cue emotive music as he strikes a superhero pose).

  • Good Times, Bad Moon - Short Film
    Good Times, Bad Moon - Short FilmGood Times, Bad Moon is an atmospheric, neon noir short film that’s a love letter to the experience of the early 90’s roller disco... but with a horror twist at the end. The mood is set with colourful neon lights flashing through dry ice smoke to beats reminiscent of De La Soul’s “A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturday” in a time before rollerblades came made skating uncool.

  • Inlaws
    InlawsAs the title suggests the subjects in this series are my parent in-laws. Using the stereo type of uneasiness that can be conjured up when thinking about one's in-laws, I've place them in plastic animal masks to create an almost paganistic nightmare.
