“ Chris has worked for me many times on my documentary and dramatic film projects. Most recently he sound edited my documentary “ Reclaiming Rights “ and scored and sound designed my Bravo short “ Wanting the Wine “. His skills recording dialogue, composing music, sound designing and sound editing are exceptional and I have been consistently impressed with the results. Chris’s professional attitude, attention to detail and deadline and his amicable personality make him a valuable addition to any film project. I highly recommend him because he is a joy to work with."

” Chris has unique and “out there” ideas that cross genres from Sci-Fi to Thriller. The story he has worked on diligently through 3 drafts has taken the script into other dimensions and realms not typically explored. He has the potential for a blockbuster in the psychological/psychic thriller he is writing.”

THIS IS ME
Chris has been dubbed the Canadian Clint Eastwood and the John Carpenter of the icy North. Not by any film critics but by his very knowledgeable brother bribed by very expensive single-malt scotch.
His most memorable experience thus far has been music and sound editing a season of the UK series ‘Naked Attraction’ on subcontract for Big World Sound. The TV series where men and women choose their next date based on what contestants ‘junk’ looks like. Needless to say, it was hard to concentrate!
Chris tells stories in many different mediums and thus the reference to Eastwood and Carpenter - the masters of multi-tasking! He is a published author (C.M.Hindmarsh THE FORGOTTEN), he’s sold a TV script, his radio-plays ‘Zoe’ and ‘Sanctuary’ air frequently and nationally on CBC radio, his music scores have featured in over 25 plays and many films and videos including ‘Unveiled: The Kohistan Video Scandal’, his documentary ‘Synchronicity’ has been screened at many venues in British Columbia and the feature film ‘Savage Island’ that he co sound designed has won 4 horror film festivals in the US. Chris has also spent significant time performing on stage having played in four bands.
He really likes the adage that “you can’t know a subject fully until you’ve taught it” and to that end Chris has taught at Vancouver Film School and many other post secondary venues.
Is there anything Chris can’t do? “No!”, according to his brother, now pleasantly pissed on said very expensive single-malt scotch.
Chris has envisioned and written 18 scripts for film, television and radio and to date has 3 production credits 1 for television ( Mustard Pancakes Productions ) and 2 for CBC Radio ( ZOE and Sanctuary ).
He is also an instructor and mentor at Troubadour Mentoring
A despondent young shaman and inventor of the Interface, a device facilitating communication between humans and orcas, joins forces with a vengeful spirit to derail the Navy’s Marine Mammal Weapons Program.
DEATH'S SWEET CALL (Feature)
Desperate to rescue his career, a disillusioned music producer preys on a
gifted young street urchin who can only sing when possessed by Celtic goddess Brigid.
CONFLICT (TV Series)
A curious alien parasite infiltrates NOAH, a badly damaged terran starship crewed by battle-worn mercenaries, and conducts a series of trials to investigate the warring nature of humanity.
When aliens crash-land on a lush Eden-like planet, an exemplary game warden questions his loyalty when ordered to eliminate the survivors who look just like him.
