Chris fell in love with film from an early age. A graduate of the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, Chris has worked as a director, photographer, and editor for clients in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and his hometown of Little Rock.
In 2014 he and his two brothers formed their own company, Cranford Co., which is a full-service advertising, communications, and digital production company.
Chris’s work has previously won the local Best of Broadcast Addy Award three years in a row, and his films for the Little Rock 48 Hour film competition also won three years in a row. His still photography has also won three National Addy awards.
Chris also enjoys taking fine art photographs as a hobby. In 2013 he won First Place in New York’s SoHo Photo Gallery’s International Krappy Kamera competition, and over the years his photography has been displayed in galleries from San Francisco to New York. In 2022, one of his pinhole photographs was included in the Arkansas Department of Heritage’s Small Works on Paper collection.
