Kristian R. Hill
Motor City native Kristian Hill is celebrated and respected as one of Detroit’s most talented creative professionals. Excelling as a filmmaker, videographer and rising director with more than 18 years experience in the business, Kristian has long cast his own distinct glow in the Film, Video & Entertainment industries. His most recent accomplishment is a project he produced, directed and starred in “Postcards: Mandela”, an Africa Channel special feature that was just nominated for an NAACP Image Award. His first editorial recognition came from his work on the critically-acclaimed documentary and television mini-series "Icons Among Us: Jazz In The Present Tense". A documentary the American Film Institute cited as an example of filmmaking excellence for 2010. A gamut of his Emmy nominated editorial projects have been featured on ESPN, The NFL Network, HBO, BET and SITV, just to name a few. Some of his most notable clients include Warner Bros. Records, Overbrook Entertainment (Will, Jaden and Willow Smith in partnership with Justin Bieber), Simmons-Lathan Media Group and NBC-TV Networks. Residing in Los Angeles but still strongly tethered to Detroit, Kristian is now bringing focus to his passion project and directorial debut. He reveals the heart-pounding true story of Detroit Techno with an amazing film set to release this year, and whisks you around the world in an upcoming travel series based on his adventures: “Electric Roots: the Detroit Sound Project”.
