Rachel Knoll is a freelance filmmaker who works in director and camera roles. She received a MA at the Royal College of Art in London. More notably, Rachel holds the record for the most copies owned of the critically acclaimed film, Gigli, learned how to drive motorcycles with a troop of pizza delivery drivers in London, and had Thanksgiving with strangers in the Alaskan wilderness and survived to tell the tale. She has spent living in the US, UK, Switzerland and Canada working for production companies and ad agencies.
Rachel works on a range of video and interactive projects with an emphasis on finding new and innovative ways to capture and tell human-centric stories. Combining her interest in emerging technologies and know-how of traditional disciplines, Rachel has been recognized internationally for her perspective by Wired Magazine, Vimeo Staff Picks, The National Film Board of Canada, The Atlantic, Vice, Adweek, and Fast Company.
From documentary, to live-action, to an interactive installation, Rachel works in a variety of disciplines but at the core of all her projects is a strong creative idea and interest in collaboration. She balances her time between working commercially for brands, agencies, and non-profits to create videos, photography, installations, and experiential events. Meanwhile, she pursues personal projects, including directing a short film for which she received a grant from the Jerome Foundation.
