Chris is a writer-director – and occasional photographer – from the UK. In his early career, Chris was a member of the audiovisual collective Addictive TV. They produced experimental films, motion graphics and the long-running ITV1 electronic music series Mixmasters. As a live audiovisual act, Addictive TV were voted No.1 VJs in the world by DJMag, performing at events/venues including: Le Centre Pompidou, The ICA, The BFI, Glastonbury Festival, Mutek and Cork Opera House.
He is now focused on writing and directing narrative film. His work spans documentary and fiction, often exploring the interplay of our behaviour with landscape, architecture, folklore and the uncanny.
Chris’s work has screened at film, photography and art festivals globally. In 2018 his feature documentary New Town Utopia, narrated by Jim Broadbent, was released theatrically to widespread acclaim, including four-star reviews in The Guardian, The Times and The FT. It played at festivals around the world and was selected as ‘Best of the fest’ at Rotterdam Architecture Film Festival.
New Town Utopia is also cross-platform work that also comprises a publication of poetry, photography and theory (featuring contributions from Jonathan Meades, Owen Hatherley and Gillian Darley), and a video installation entitled New Town Utopia x Magic Party Place. This was exhibited at the Sharjah Biennale (Beirut), Format Photography Festival and Rich Mix, London.
Chris has also created and directed commercial films and interactive work for brands including Guinness, O2, Sony PlayStation and the National Lottery.
