Creativity Can Come From Anywhere

We’re a team of over 60 creators and storytellers. We believe the best ideas can come from unexpected places so we’re building a company that’s open to new ideas and where everyone is given the opportunity to be creative.

The AFL Story

Born from the dream of two long-time friends, A Filthy Lot Entertainment was created to show the world there’s a better way to bring creative ideas to life. Disillusioned after a career spent in the trenches of the film industry, our founders Chris and Trevor knew there had to be a better way. Assembling a team from their network of film and TV industry friends and colleagues, A Filthy Lot got its start in Chris’ living room, but before long we found a disused studio by the water, and have been working on getting this place cleaned up ever since.

Our Leadership

Teamwork makes the dream work.

Chris Livingston

Co-CEO

Chris Livingston is a former theater kid originally from Ottawa, Ontario. After a short stint soldering circuit boards for the family business and doing his best not to electrocute himself, he went on to study film making at Vancouver Film school, before embarking on a long and varied career in the film industry. Starting at the bottom and working his way up, he’s done everything from being a camera operator to being a creative consultant for major Hollywood studios. Chris is also a serial entrepreneur, with A Filthy Lot being the latest in a long line of ventures ranging from restaurants, to robotic farms. In his (very limited) free time he enjoys working on his Jeep, off-roading, building PCs and playing video games.

Chief Operations Officer

Hailing from the west coast wilds of Vancouver Island, Ryan has almost 15 years experience in the digital media industry. Ryan spent the majority of his career as co-founder and managing partner of successful digital agency, though he has also lead teams at a “Big three” Canadian telecommunications company and a major post-secondary institution. Ryan has long had an interest in the visual arts, having previously descended to the depths of a very weird rabbit-hole creating experimental video art using lasers and far too many crystals, as well as directing commercials for clients during his time at his former agency. In his personal life Ryan is an avid cyclist, thoroughly mediocre amateur electronic musician, occasional improviser and lover of fine whiskey.
