Dalton Viggers


I am currently a rising senior year at Columbia College Chicago studying Cinema Art + Science as well as Entrepreneurship and Business Management. The influential power that media can have is ultimately what drives me. I strive to create exceptional work that entertains, informs, and nurtures.  

Creative and strategic vision, keen attention to detail, and desire to create for impact are skills that help me excel when it comes to my interest in film, design, and creative enterprise. 

I aim to construct monumental yet simple work that will help shape a better tomorrow.

Host with Pride

Airbnb Internship | Editor | July 2014

I was very enthusiastic in getting the opportunity to edit Host with Pride. Finding the narrative and soul of this story throughout scattered audio clips, interviews, and b-roll footage was highly stimulating for me. I found great pleasure in creating work that stood for something bigger than myself. 

Intern Recruitment Video

Airbnb Internship | Producer, Cinematographer, Editor | August 2014

The goal of this video was to be informative and to express a sense of belonging. I wanted to accomplish this by keeping everything real; not scripting interviews and capturing footage in its most natural state. This was a great challenge I enjoyed learning a lot from.
