Atlanta native Tristan David Luciotti is an American film and voice over actor, director, screenwriter and producer. Tristan is the owner of Vision8Studio in Portland, OR which is a prominent acting and film production studio.

Tristan has enjoyed compelling roles in feature films, shorts, TV shows and commercials - including the feature film GET GONE where he worked alongside Lin Shaye, Robert Miano, Weston Cage Coppola, Bailey Coppola, Rico E. Anderson, Bradley Stryker, and Caitlin Stryker.

He is the director, writer, producer and lead actor, Corey Caruso, in the episodic web series Adventures in #Adulting - releasing Summer 2019.

While he enjoys comedy and is naturally comedic, Tristan has a wide range and is equally drawn to dramatic roles.

Tristan was featured in a couple of TV shows, including Portlandia, Grimm and The Librarians. You might even recognize him from one of his multiple commercial spots as the weather and traffic app man on KGW 8 Portland.

Tristan started acting at the age of 5 and his first time on TV was in a McDonald's commercial. Tristan also appeared on stage in countless plays every year from elementary through high school and some in his early college years. During his youth, he also appeared in several indie films and studied modeling/acting with John Casablancas in addition to being coached by 4 prominent acting teachers and being signed with ELITE Model Management.

In college, Tristan studied Theatre for the first year, then switched to Film Studies at Georgia State University. After graduation, he took a hiatus from the industry for several years and only accepted a few select roles in several projects. He spent that time building up his corporate career until he moved from Atlanta, GA to Portland, OR in December 2013. In early 2014, Tristan decided to pursue his acting career - his true passion - with full force.

His first step into the Portland spotlight was at Twilight Theater Company when he played the lead, Henry Thompson, in Looking for Olivia. He then appeared in several stage musical cabarets and was the Assistant Director of The Heidi Chronicles. Tristan decided to focus primarily on-camera and step away from the stage in 2016.

Tristan is also a filmmaker and will wrap his full feature documentary, All Around Us which will premiered in Seaside, OR at Times Theatre March 2019, then again in Camas, WA May 2019. It is currently circulating the film festival circuit.

His short documentary film Stella & Rocky is currently available to watch on Amazon Video (free for Prime members) after a successful festival run.

He just finished his screenplay The Subtle Art of Being Human, which is currently hitting the film festival circuit.
