Eyes Up Films is based in Bristol, a partnership between Christophe Blanc and Kristen Griffin.
We are a UK film company based in Bristol. We produce films, working with clients from across the UK and around the world. Together with our clients, we aim to bring real thought, quality, and commitment to everything we do. We love to find creative, original and visual ways to tell stories.
We are especially driven to make films that matter, films that value, motivate, and move people. We create and develop ideas and handle every aspect of making a film, from concept to completion. We assemble crews with the right skills for the size and scope of the project.
We are hands on, hard working, and God knows we love making films.
With a nose like Adrian Brody and a vague sense that he might be a lovechild of Franco Zeferrelli, Kris made the unnatural transition into film from a career managing projects around social inclusion.
Kris has worked for a variety of production companies like the BBC and Channel 4, as well as smaller indies, charities and big brands such as Adidas, NHS, YMCA, and Salvation Army.
Eager to convince himself he is still young, Kris undertook a Masters in Film & Television Production at Bristol University. He is also a member of BAFTA Crew and part of their networking & masterclass programme.
"My two loves are film and music... and Nutella."
The most British Frenchman you ever met, Christophe is an engineering graduate and film nut.
He leads on all the post-production and has mad skills in special effects, CGI, compositing, animation, editing, motion graphics, sound design, and all that other techy stuff.
A trained sound engineer and keen musician, Christophe also produces original musical scores for much of our work.
He is also a very skilled drone pilot and is Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved with Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO - 6784).
"Passionate about people and their stories."

"The campaign film about homelessness that Eyes Up Films made for the YMCA helped us reach our fundraising target so we can build a hostel in Bristol where young people will have a safe place to stay."
