One for the Kipper

Aaron Ruell is probably best known for playing the role of Kip in the movie Napoleon Dynamite. But the Californian native is also a super talented and  accomplished commercial director and photographerHe was recently declared one of the most promising new directors in the world of advertising by Shoot magazine. Besides directing commericals, Ruell was the only filmmaker to have two films, Everything's Gone Green and Mary, which he wrote and directed, premiere at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. His photos, a little awkward and staged, are simultaneously very layered, colorful and rich with naratives.  Take a gander.
