Hi, I’m Chris.
I’ve been working for Panalux for the last 7 years, initially in the lighting prep at head office and more recently in the engineering department.
During this time I have prepped lights for lots of big productions including entries in the Marvel franchise, James Bond, Star Wars, Game of Thrones along with lots of well-known music videos and TV commercials.
This got me interested in what happens on set, so in 2016 I started my gaffering journey, starting off with my cousins indie horror feature dogged, this got me some contacts within the industry and at this moment I have gaffered 11 music videos 7 shorts (one of which will be entered into the Venice film festival), 3 horror features and an interview between Ghetts and DJ target.
I have entered into the sci-fi 48hr festival twice, I have also been, Best Boy on 2 shorts and just recently was Best Boy on a project working alongside Phil Meheux. (DOP on Goldeneye and CasinoRoyale)
