Chris Ramlochan was born in Guyana where no electricity at home meant no television but that did not stop him from soaking up movies, in fact, all movies Hollywood and Bollywood, so much so the Raj Mahal Cinema became a second home. And as if that's not enough, right after the movie event, like a ritual, Chris would hurry home to a gathering of siblings and neighbors only to be awed with more storytelling, this time told flawlessly by both his mom and dad.
A few years later, the compulsion to tell these stories became a fire that can only be quenched by letting these stories out -- So for Chris, a former high school teacher -- after graduating from Gotham Writers' Workshop in New York City, and devouring works by Vogler, Trottier, Field, McKee and of course the indomitable Campbell -- Chris penned five screenplays and won a couple competitions: Stop The Sun (action) snapped up 1st place while ShockWave, a sci-fi, earned 2nd prize. A drama called Tears in Heaven followed, then Watchdog Woman, a one-of-a-kind serial killer story -- with real franchise potential. Chris is currently editing Seeker of Hell, a supernatural horror story. Priorities for 2018? Sell Seeker, develop my own content starting with Watchdog, raise additional financing and produce that baby.
