Director, Video Communications

“If I can help save a child’s life today with a video, I can't think of a better reason to hit ‘record.’”

Kris began making films at the age of 8, and hasn’t stopped since. He is a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill-Radio, TV, Motion Pictures, where his student film, “The Gift,” garnered industry attention at film festivals and led to opportunities to work in Hollywood after college. After a successful stint working on national commercial spots and producing and directing music videos for artists such as Tori Amos, Kris decided to bring his creativity and ability to tell stories to the world of nonprofits. He headed the video production department at Malaria No More and now leads the way for Safe Kids, using humor and substance to inspire more people to get involved.

Telly Awards

It is a great honor that two of our PSAs, “Moment of Silence” and “Bubble Wrap,” won 2014 Telly Awards, one of the premier awards honoring the finest in film and video production.  We are thrilled to be recognized at this level, because it helps bring more attention to the issue of child injury prevention.

Both videos were created by Safe Kids’ video director Kris Hixson, whose vision helped make each project a success.
