KRISTIAN
ANDRESEN

Kristian Andresen began his film career more than 20 years ago when he guarded a set parking lot on some of the poorest, most dense and most drug-addled streets in North America

His personality and workaholic attitude enabled successful navigation and ascension through the world of film production. Quickly becoming a well- respected producer in commercials and music videos, Kristian orchestrated and oversaw the collaboration of countless talented individuals and highly skilled technicians. Harnessing the talent and creative drive of those around him, Andresen founded Famous Kids in 2003, a sister company to commercial powerhouse Circle Productions. Shortly thereafter, Kristian was given the opportunity to take the reins at Circle Productions’ Toronto office.

Kristian founded Transmission in 2007 to be a full service production company, enabling all processes from development through postproduction. After a string of high-profile advertising work, Kristian produced Transmission’s first feature film, Skyline that grossed over 80 Million worldwide the highest grossing independent Sci-Fi film to date. Andresen is currently in development with several narrative projects, and leading the production on several marketing projects.
