When the world changes, we adapt. Philipp Kristian has had an eclectic career, as a keynote speaker and beyond. Besides frequent stints in front of the camera, this also included behind the scenes work. For example, he once directed a TV commercial featuring a national athlete, and shot several short films mostly covering life in East Asia. He’s also appeared as a commercial model, with clients ranging from Chanel to Caltex. This means he knows a thing or two about camera angles and lighting. It’s all a long story, best enjoyed over a (virtual) cup of coffee.
