About Chris

Chris has been dubbed the Canadian Clint Eastwood and the John Carpenter of the icy North. Not by any film critics but by his very knowledgeable brother bribed by very expensive single-malt scotch.

His most memorable experience thus far has been music and sound editing a season of the UK series ‘Naked Attraction’ on subcontract for Big World Sound. The TV series where men and women choose their next date based on what contestants ‘junk’ looks like. Needless to say, it was hard to concentrate!

Chris tells stories in many different mediums and thus the reference to Eastwood and Carpenter - the masters of multi-tasking! He is a published author (C.M.Hindmarsh THE FORGOTTEN), he’s sold a TV script, his radio-plays ‘Zoe’ and ‘Sanctuary’ air frequently and nationally on CBC radio, his music scores have featured in over 25 plays and many films and videos including ‘Unveiled: The Kohistan Video Scandal’, his documentary ‘Synchronicity’ has been screened at many venues in British Columbia and the feature film ‘Savage Island’ that he co sound designed has won 4 horror film festivals in the US. Chris has also spent significant time performing on stage having played in four bands.

He really likes the adage that “you can’t know a subject fully until you’ve taught it” and to that end Chris has taught at Vancouver Film School and many other post secondary venues.

Is there anything Chris can’t do?
“No!”, according to his brother, now pleasantly pissed on said very expensive single-malt scotch.
