Chris’s directing skills stretch across various genres from comedy drama to documentary to music video. With a strong emphasis on character and dialogue, his work has led him to collaborate with a diverse range of household names, including Robin Williams, Bob Geldof, John Peel, & Chris Rock.
Recently, Chris directed the critically-acclaimed ‘Officially Special’ for Sky, as part of the ’Love Matters’ season. The sharp, witty ‘commitmentphobia’ comedy features the formidably funny Katherine Parkinson (IT Crowd). Chris also helmed the channel’s ‘Miss Wright’ starring Isy Suttie (Peep Show’s Dobby) - a short, surreal ‘musical’ about a cafe owner obsessed with a railway station employee.
Chris has been named by the Observer magazine as one of the top ten film talents to watch after making 5 feature length documentaries for the BBC on various American Histories. The collection of films was recently nominated for both Royal Television Society and Grierson Awards, as well as being voted the best ‘Hidden Gems’ on the BBC in the last 10 yrs by The Radio Times. Chris has also been nominated for two Scottish BAFTAs and has just been signed to direct a US comedy feature in 2014 called ‘The B Team’.
