Kristyna Archer

Kristyna Archer is an award-winning director with a passion for creating thought-provoking and 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 commercial and branded projects in film, moving image, stop-motion, and photography work. 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 projects of note include 72 & Sunny’s, a cultural commentary on the miseducation that maternity leave is a vacation, which won a Webby, an ADC award, and was featured in Adweek. UberEats and Vanity Fair Napkins/ spots, which won a Telly Award, where her minimal, abstract art direction and quirky sense of humor are highlighted. Most recently she wrote and directed a short film called A Brief History of the Eyeroll, where she weaves her love animation into her playful storytelling point of view. Her mastery in seamless transitions is explored continually, but most recently in her oddly satisfying films, Museum of Vibrators and Dreamsicle, which won an AI-AP Int'l Motion Award.

She currently splits time between LA & NYC, is on a covert op to find the best waffles in every town, and can be found befriending any cat that crosses her path.
