Cutting his teeth way back in 1998, Chris picked up his folks Video8 Camcorder, pulled together a motley crew of skater mates and filmed/edited his debut release “Thrive – A Skateboard Film”
From those glory days of steppy slow-mo and star wipes he’s since discovered a passion for telling people’s stories through the art of editing. This same passion for visual story telling can be seen in Chris’ love of travel & street photography – keeping a curious eye on the stories from the streets has aided him in crafting some beautiful narrative pieces in the edit suite.
Chris has over 15 years of editing experience in post houses, production companies, and advertising agencies. He is forever on the hunt of finding fresh ways to craft engaging pieces whether it be commercial, content, doco or film.
Travelling man, Family man, Editor…man.
