Recently, Kristen's work has screened at film festivals, been broadcast on television, and featured on various internet platforms. Last year, her work on the short film, Idyllwild, a coming of age story set in Sanya, China earned her an award for Best Cinematography.
In addition to narrative work Kristen has experience shooting documentaries, celebrity interviews, web series, behind the scenes features, and promotional branded content for various clients.
With an MFA in Cinematography from the American Film Institute and a BA in Film Production from Emerson College Kristen has a solid basis of collaborative experience and technical knowledge.
