Chad Hawkins began his film career working for independent producer Jack Hafer on the Kiefer Sutherland/ Robert Carlyle film, To End All Wars. From there he took a Development Executive position under the Miramax banner with Ross Bell, producer of ‘Fight Club’ and industry heavyweight Lawrence Bender, Quentin Tarantino’s producer with Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill Volume 1&2. While with Bender, Chad helped develop multiple high profile projects, including Shantaram with Johnny Depp, and Bank Job with Jason Statham.

Along with its sister commercial company Stortellerz, Chad produced multiple television projects including Air Force Elite and Man Hunters, as well as numerous commercials, and has the films, Genuine Imitation and Unearthed in pre-production for next year.
