Rift started in 2017, with already a decade of experience.


For the past decade, from New York to Los Angeles, India to Ireland, Rift has been all over the world. While adventure is our middle name, we find our place here in the midwest to be home. Rift was started by Scotty Kunkel who has been working with ad agencies since high school, so he's been on the scene for a little while now. Starting with working in the audio world as a musician, he was once asked to pick up a camera and quickly fell in love with composition and light. Just when he thought things couldn't get any better he discovered he had a knack for motion graphic animation, and well, the rest is history.
