From directing, producing, editing, and even scoring a myriad of creative ventures, Chris Folkens has been a filmmaker since he was a teenager. Over the years, Folkens has served as a producer at the worldwide advertising agency, Leo Burnett, working with clients ranging from Hallmark, Delta Faucets, Beck’s Beer, Kelloggs, the Chicago 2016 Olympic Committee, and Philip Morris USA and International. He has continued to produce, direct, and edit on a variety of high-end film and video projects.

Folkens has developed a unique style and creative vision. Drawing on his background as a musician, Folkens often uses music to influence his visual style, pacing, and technique.
