CHRISTOPHER NEWMAN
DIRECTOR

I cut my teeth as a young filmmaker shooting professional surfers across the globe. I went on to earn a Masters degree in documentary from UC-Santa Cruz and have screened my award-winning doc work in festivals worldwide and nationally on PBS. After a stint living and filming in Peru, I returned to San Francisco to build my commercial reel as a director where I continue to work with global brands and agencies. My intention as a director is to create cinematic, heartfelt and honest connections between my subjects and the viewer. I absolutely cherish getting to know people and cultures that I wouldn't have encountered outside of film. When I’m not directing you can find me surfing and photographing the rugged swells that frequent my San Francisco home.
