Ask Britt Caillouette why he does what he loves for a living, he might tell you, “Life’s too short” and actually mean it. He beat cancer when he was sixteen, losing a leg in the process. Since then, the drama of real-life just seemed a little more interesting. A student of history with an keen eye for photography, he directed his first documentary in war-torn West Africa while an undergraduate at Stanford. A habitual risk-taker with a love for challenging production situations, he’s brought his honest style of visual storytelling to top brands like Ford, Levi’s, Patagonia, and Apple, winning a Cannes Lion last year for his Intel spot, “Look Inside: Jack Andraka.” Britt lives in San Francisco with his wife and Irish Wolfhound.
