Mill+ has announced the addition of Tristyn von Berg to its directorial roster. Tristyn’s rich history of excellent creative execution has now led him to The Mill’s Chicago outpost.
Tristyn hails from South Africa where he began his career working under the stewardship of Keith Rose, of Velocity Films. Over the past decade, he has directed commercials, interactive films and music videos including his award-winning spot for the Organ Donation Foundation; he has also been a long-time admirer of The Mill. Tristyn has been recognised for his work with numerous awards, such as the Clios, the D&ADs, Loeries, and was even nominated as one of the Top Young Directors at Cannes in 2012.
Brian Smego, Executive Producer at The Mill in Chicago, comments: “We’re very excited to have Tristyn join the Mill+ team here in Chicago. He’s a truly versatile filmmaker. He excels at visual storytelling and creating emotive content. Combining his skillset with our design and animation teams, allows us to expand our creative palette for both film and experience-based projects.”
Tristyn adds: “The Mill and Chicago have a shared commitment to unique creative excellence – being able to call both a home leaves only the desire to create amazing work with the best the industry has to offer. “
