Fav Genre – Neo Noir, Sci fi and Fantasy

 

Background – Producer, Production Manager

 

About Chris:

 

I have always loved film and as an adult I have been involved in many different ways, such as, Producer (14 titles), Production Manager (8 titles), Director (5 titles), Cinematographer (2 titles), Writer (2 titles), Editor (1 title). I have also been in Distribution as well as other film festivals.

 

After one of mine and my brothers usual heated film debates we both decided that we should create our own film festival. We want to make sure that everyone's films are seen. As we always say "A Film Isn't Finished Until It Is Seen".

 

Film festivals are important as seeing the crowds, meeting aspiring filmmakers and mingling with the movers and shakers of the industry is exhilerating. The feel of community is especially strong in the local festivals and film markets and the energy and excitement that comes from the national ones is thrilling.
