About Chris

Chris tells stories. Sometimes whoppers.

He began his career as a storyboard artist and following 15years as an award-winning Art Director and Creative Director, Chris slipped into the Director’s Chair in 2003 when no one was looking and he has continued his craft there since, creating films for international brands and screens of all sizes. Chris has shot in Europe, Africa, Australia and the Americas and has a particular passion for sport.

Alongside athletes and actors he also enjoys coaching performances from kids, animals and other forms of unpredictable chaos. His polished work often combines live action with CG, VFX and his technical expertise encompasses hi speed, aerial, green screen and motor crane cinematography. In demand for his expertise and experience, Chris lectures in screen Direction at the Manchester Film School and the University of Salford where he leads the Directing Fiction Module.

Chris takes no joy from anything done half-hearted and his favourite things are Northern Soul, talking and drinking. Ideally all at the same time.
