Cristian Troncoso

Matador of Motion


I loved growing up in Santiago, Chile riding bikes and playing music with friends. The thing I miss the most is being able to walk everywhere you go, but I’m still glad I came to the States to grow my career as a filmmaker.

I’m always up for a good glass of wine, especially Carmenere and Syrah. I find they both pair nicely with the Jazz, Rock, and Ethnic music that I love. Naturally an introvert and deep thinker, I enjoy spending my spare time pondering on the mysteries of life and watching European cinematography like Krzysztof Kieślowski, Giuseppe Tornatore and Bruno Delbonnel.

I love working at Friendly Human because I believe in the power of storytelling and the positive change it can make. While my roles are mainly camera operator, video editor, and sound technician, I always want to strive to produce the best content possible, as it brings about transformation and improves the lives of others.
