To Riley Robbins, film is about making an emotional connection. It’s about falling in love with the way people move, the way they speak or touch. He finds that raw feeling in their dance, their words and looks, and he delivers that in its purest form.
Robbins’ unique perspective has enabled him, in just a few years of moving to Los Angeles, to produce for some of the biggest names in our times. Aside from Pepsi and H&M, he has also worked with Pharrell Williams, Karl Lagerfeld, and Kevin Durant.
A director is not just the sum of his equipment, but, as an artist, the sum of his experiences. Riley Robbins thrives in these experiences. So that in every shoot, every edit, he creates a story vibrant with people and movement.
“The lens is my brush. She’s my canvas. In one stroke… the moon, pavement, and our footsteps came together in my eyes. So all that was left was the sound of our hearts beating.”
