Named one of Shoot Online’s “Up-and-Coming Directors” of 2017, Chad is an honors graduate of Art Center College of Design. His work specializes in the combination of live action and CG with a commercial client list that includes notable brands such as Google, VW, Honda, Marvel, Ubisoft, The Grammys, and Westin Hotels.
“Welcome to The Last Bookstore”, was his first foray into documentary filmmaking. It has garnered several awards, and played at Academy Award Qualifying film festivals, including AFI and Cinequest. It has also been featured on NPR, The Atlantic, Newsweek, Boing Boing, chosen as a Vimeo Staff Pick, and Short of the Week.
Chad’s most recent narrative short, “From 35,000 feet / Praise Aviophobia”, is based on the poem by American Author Geffrey Davis, recently screened at the DGA Theatre for the AICP’s Commercial Director Diversity Program.
