About Chris

Chris Roland is an award-winning American producer, director, and writer living and working in Cape Town, South Africa. Chris owns My Movies, a sales and distribution company, and previously owned ZenHQ Films and The Imaginarium, both leading production companies, and the South Africa Film Finance Corporation (production financing), and Basecamp Logistics (unit equipment rentals). 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 producing and has turned his attention to writing (10 current screenplays available), directing, consulting, and inspiring others, which began with the launch of his book, It's Not Personal - Letting Go and Gaining an Island. The inspirational and often funny story revolves around Chris' last film and the spiritual journey that kept him from losing his mind.

Peripheral to his work in the entertainment industry, Chris is a 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 2020.
