Kristyna Archer is an interdisciplinary artist who works across film, photography, and design with a passion for creating thought-provoking, visually compelling work through a lens of hyperrealism. She explores the surreal and the absurd, with a proclivity towards irony, infused in her vibrant stylized worlds. Her distinct aesthetic and playful tone breathes life into all types of projects in film, moving image, stop-motion, and photography. Concepting from her keen eye for design and quirky point of view with access to an abundantly curious imagination, there’s never a dull moment on set.
Some recent accolades include Best Fashion Film by London Fashion Film Festival and Best Concept Film by Canadian International Fashion Film Festival for her fashion short “Musical Chairs: A Battle Royale,” nominations for the Next Generation Award by the Berlin Commercial Awards; her quarantine film “A Beginner’s Guide to Quarantine from a Born-Again Optimist” featured as a part of Shiny Picks and various film festivals internationally. She has won 5 Telly awards for her Pantene Pro-V “Ban the Bun” #Buntervention spot and her MommyBahama.com project won a Webby, an ADC award, and was featured in Adweek.
