All About christian

A blend of intimacy and precision allows director christian riebe to bring out the best in a brand’s story, and his natural shooting style lends itself perfectly to working with actors and real people alike. His visual style is defined by authenticity, from his work with kids to his seamless integration of table top into story. This quality results in narratives that emanate warmth and connect with audiences.

When christian was 15 years old, he contributed to filmmaking for the first time as part of the Art Department in a feature production. It was a life changing experience and marked the moment christian fell in love with the industry. Working in various capacities in feature film and TV series production over the next few years, he gained deep experiences in the filmmaking process before enrolling in an advertising program at Filmacademy Baden-Wuerttemberg. While studying, he became a VFX Supervisor – an asset to his future as a director at a time when visual effects was becoming increasingly central to the process.

As a director, christian has contributed his unique eye and multifaceted experience to creating spots with cinematic style and quality. Among them, commercials for Sony Bravia, Miele, Philadelphia Cream Cheese, and LG.

christian speaks fluent English and German, fair French and Italian (only the bad words). Residing in Los Angeles and Berlin, he works frequently in both the US and Europe.

Even More About Christian

There are a lot of things christian could have been. Given that he comes from a long line of sailors and sea captains, he might have been a mariner—if swabbing the deck wasn’t part of the job description. He might have been a singer like his grandfather who once performed opera alongside the incomparable Enrico Caruso. He toyed with the idea of ballet (mainly to meet ballerinas), but something about that Nutcracker sounded a little uninviting. He’s got a vicious inside move and a lethal jump shot that nearly landed him a professional hoops career.

But when he was 15 he fell in love with film. Or was it the French girl who gave him his first kiss while working on a film set? In any event, that pivotal moment of passion translated into a career crafting heartfelt pieces of film that capture food and lifestyle with a refreshingly honest and authentic sensibility. So christian went the director route. He settled down with a lovely French girl. And we finally found a ringer for our imaginary basketball team, the kaboom Blasters.
