Christopher Riggert’s cinematic work explores his fascination of visual language, born from his background in still photography, graphic design, and advertising. Christopher left his native Perth, Australia to travel the globe as a creative at agencies such as Fallon London, where he worked on global accounts for BBC, Skoda, British Telecom, United Airlines, Nike, MTV, Levi’s and Puma. He later shifted to directing with @radical.media, and was quickly named a “Director to Watch” by Creativity in 2008. Christopher joined biscuit filmworks in 2010, bringing his arsenal of skills and international palate to the roster.
With ingrained flexibility from his agency days and a depth of talent, Christopher works like a chameleon, easily changing directorial styles to best suit the project at hand. Brands such as Cisco, NBA, Mercedes, Dodge, Audi, Chevy, Fosters, Bulleit, Powerade, Yellowglen, Domino’s, Hyundai, Nike, New Zealand’s Earthquake Commission, and more have benefitted from Christopher’s comprehensive vision. For each client, he strives to create cohesive and fundamentally unique campaigns that illuminate a deeper emotional landscape lying just beneath the surface. His art and design background is evident in his work, which features visual compositions that are impactful and engaging.
Christopher’s work has appeared in the Super Bowl, and his buzzworthy Dodge campaign “How to Change Cars Forever” was honored at Cannes Lions.
