I'm Christiana Lopez: a writer, director, and multi-hyphenate creative with an itchy, innovative brain and an entrepreneurial mindset.
I've written and directed award-winning viral videos for Comedy Central, and my self-produced parody series "Not Your Average PSAs" trended on Reddit and was featured by Vulture—twice.
Ever since I was a lanky kid with a clunky VHS camera, I’ve been compelled to create—and it’s an itch I’ve needed to scratch time and again. When developing an idea, staying curious and out of my comfort zone is common practice. While collaborating with others, I believe that gratitude and authenticity are essential to fostering a connected, inclusive atmosphere where we all feel integral to a project’s success. I also believe that playfulness and professionalism aren’t mutually exclusive. We’re on set together for the next 12 hours? Let’s find some joy.
With a body of work spanning from commercials and branded content to web series and passion projects, I’m well-versed in both full-scale and nimble production workflows and have the ability to wear many hats. As an in-house Swiss Army knife at Comedy Central, I wrote, produced, directed, DP'd, and edited the commercial parody series "That’s An App?”. One episode was the brand’s
#1 piece of original content across Facebook & IGTV (2020) and won the "IGTV Audience Honor" at the Shorty Awards. I also helped pioneer “Under the Influencer”, and produced for the multi-award-winning "Mini-Mocks", a series with 500M+ views. When I'm not creating for brands, you'll find me developing an idea, writing a script, or directing an indie project—and if I'm not behind the
camera, I'm in front of it.
I spend most days in Brooklyn, New York, where I enjoy long walks in the Greenwood Cemetery, telling jokes to my plants, and sharing the couch with my cat. I find writing bios to be as intimidating as signing group birthday cards.
