Born and raised in Toronto, Tristan O’Brien’s creative vision is intrinsically shaped by his hometown nostalgia and passion for sharing the stories, or “fragments” as he refers to them, that unfold around him. Tristan’s pursuit of capturing these fragments that we may experience, sometimes for just a fleeting moment, has led to his passion behind the lens. As a lifelong fan of film, Tristan’s vision looks to create a symbiosis between his unique perspective and the cinematic undertones that have inspired his work.
While not having a clear-cut definition of success, Tristan will be the first to tell you that while he may have accomplished many of the goals he had initially set out to achieve, he is far from getting started. “Always learning, always growing.” is a motto that you will hear him toss around often, and a trait found throughout his work thus far.
