Born and raised in Sweden, Martin Risberg became interested in filmmaking at the age of 12, making movies with his friends in his spare time.
At the age of 17 he received an internship to work as a videographer at Stockholm’s International Film Festival. That was followed by an internship at Wilderness Films in New York City, a company known for it’s consulting role on features such as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Let The Right One In and The Hundred Year Old Man.
Martin moved to San Luis Obispo, California when he was 18 to finish his last year of general education as an exchange student at the local high school. After his graduation Martin continued his studies at Santa Barbara City College with a major in Film Production. Throughout his time at the school he produced eight short films, with screenings at festivals all around California. In 2015 his short film “What If” won “Best student short” at San Luis Obispo International Film Festival, and the short film Brothers which he produced got distribution through the gaming platform Steam (125 million active users) in 2016.
Martin is now living in San Francisco, working as an Agency Producer at Graphite Films. Among other duties he is an important part of budgeting, developing and plan Graphites commercial shoots. Among others, he has recently worked with clients like NewDay USA, Epic!, Whistle and AAA. Martin also freelances as a videographer around the Bay Area.
