Director and Editor Noah Kistler Joins kaboom

kaboom welcomes director/editor Noah Kistler to the roster. Noah loves storytelling that is personal, emotional, and highly cinematic, and has applied this directing perspective to spots. Among his collaborations are projects for Polaris and Greats.

Noah’s via GSD&M, captures the essence of the US Air Force Maintainers. In the process of collaborating with Kistler on this campaign, kaboom witnessed first hand his ability to work under conditions that involved propriety, passion and skill. For the US Air Force, being mission ready means teamwork, hard work, integrity and expertise. Keeping eyes and ears open and ready to jump into action. For director Noah Kistler, these same ideals carry over into production – on screen and off – to honour the integrity of the Service.

“Filming for the military takes someone who is thoughtful, creative, and flexible enough to handle it,” says kaboom founder/EP Lauren Schwartz. “Noah is that person; a gracious collaborator who really cares deeply about every detail – from showing deep respect for the people and their stories, to creating a filmic look for the campaign. We are excited to officially welcome him to our roster and look forward to delivering engaging stories through our expanded collaboration.”

“Working with Lauren I was able to see her impressive experience in action,” Noah explains. “As a company, kaboom has a great blend of being small enough to feel connected to the team and culture but with depth and reach.”

Noah is an East Coast raised, Los Angeles-based director and editor. For over a decade, Noah has edited movie trailers and documentaries for noted entertainment networks, production companies, studios, and streaming platforms including A24, Netflix, Neon, Paramount, Sony Pictures, Hulu, PBS, Discovery, Magnolia Pictures.
