About Chris

I am the writer and director of a small group of filmmakers called Free Your Mind Films. I work in a movie theatre at the moment but that is nearing its end, and am trying to find some entry level film jobs in the city, while still directing my films on the side.

Unique traits: Films that deal with the darkest of the real life human condition. We're not afraid to ask the hard questions, whether it's domestic abuse, racism, or suicide.
