About Chris

Chris Roland is an award-winning American producer, director, and writer living and working in Cape Town, South Africa. Chris owns ZenHQ Films, a leading production services company, and My Movies, an international sales & distribution company. As a consultant, Chris provides a wealth of experience that helps turn challenges into opportunities and ideas and dreams into realities.

Chris has recently shifted away from production and turned his attention to inspiring others, which began with the July 2018 launch of his new book, It's Not Personal - Letting Go and Gaining an Island. The story revolves around Chris' last film and the loss of his business, home, retirement, and marriage due to the South African government defaulting on a contract, and the spiritual journey that kept Chris from also losing his mind.

Chris is now a full-time Transformational Teacher, dedicated to changing the world by helping others to break through personal and professional challenges and transform their lives. In addition to one on one and group sessions, Chris is also a public speaker and is currently penning four new books, the next to be released in November 2018.
