Kristyna Archer is an award-winning director with a passion for creating thought-provoking, 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 recent accolades include winning 5 Telly awards for her Pantene Pro-V "Ban the Bun" #Buntervention spot; her MommyBahama.com project for 72 & Sunny NYC winning a Webby, an ADC award, and featured in Adweek; being nominated for Best Fashion Film by London Fashion Film Festival for her fashion short "Musical Chairs: A Battle Royale;" being shortlisted for the Next Generation Award by the Berlin Commercial Awards; and her quarantine film "A Beginner's Guide to Quarantine from a Born-Again Optimist" being selected for both Shiny Picks and New Faces, New Voices with official selections by various other film festivals internationally.

She splits time between LA & NYC, and can be found playing hide n' seek with her nephew or befriending any cat that crosses her path.

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.

She spent her formative years in Detroit with a Pentax K1000 strapped to her side, chronicling her friends’ misadventures, and moved to the windy city where she attended Columbia College Chicago. After spending a decade in Chicago, she now splits time between LA & NYC. Archer is invested in the gender equality conversation and believes she should do everything in her power as a female artist, director, and photographer to empower women through her work and help other women to flourish. Through personal project endeavors of her film The Future Is Female PSA and podcast Mergeleft that focuses on conversations with creative female leaders, she wants to curate meaningful dialogues on gender and enact change.
