Life and career
Walliser began his interest in filming by making skateboarding videos at the age of 14. He also made a short film about the first day of high school which is still used by his high school Hugh Mcroberts. He decided to pursue directing as a career and moved to Los Angeles at the age of 24. His work began with shooting professional dancer friends on a pro-bono basis.
In 2008, one of Walliser’s dancer friends, who was a choreographer for Miley Cyrus at the time, asked him to be involved in a dance music video, which led him to direct two Miley and Mandy dance crew videos; M&M Cru with a U Battles Step Up 2 and M&M Cru Final Dance Battle, challenging Jon Chu's and Adam Sevani’s ACDC (aka Adam/Chu Dance Crew). These highly publicized music videos, touted as “the biggest online dance battle in YouTube history” featured a number of celebrity cameos and received worldwide media attention, including a feature on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The online dance battle culminated in a performance at the 2008 Teen Choice Awards, which Walliser also directed.
In 2009, Cole directed the opening video for P!nk's Funhouse World Tour. He also directed a 30-minute documentary On Tour with P!nk, and four of her music videos (Please Don't Leave Me, Funhouse, Leave Me Alone (I’m Lonely), Mean), which played during the Funhouse Summer Carnival Tour and can be found on P!nk’s ‘Greatest Hits So Far’ DVD.
In 2010, Cole Walliser edited two episodes of the dance webseries, The LXD: The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers.
Subsequently, Walliser collaborated with Katy Perry and directed the story line that played throughout her 2011 California Dreams World Tour. Walliser was entrusted to edit together footage of Katy Perry's wedding for her intimate performance at the 2011 Grammy Awards.
Walliser frequently collaborates with Lexus, USA for their marketing initiatives through the Walton | Isaacson advertising agency.
