Hello my name is Chris Carr and I am a London based film & video Director.
Storytelling is my passion; as for me the best stories are an opportunity to learn about the world we live in and a chance to discover something about ourselves. For me every project I direct is a journey of discovery. I really love working with actors and helping them connect with the material we are working on. I believe my strength as a director is in building a safe and creative working environment that allows onscreen talent to relax and work without fear of judgment. My approach has enabled me to direct award winning stage plays, short films, music videos and commercials.
I have directed commercials for Epson, The Outlet, NS&I, and Premier Cottages. I have also directed online and branded contact for varied clients such as AQA, Godalming College, ING Bank, Imperial College, London Metropolitan University, Marionnaud, NSPCC, Phaidon Press, Prostate Cancer, Superdrug and many more.
I have also directed the stage play "Our Jonathon" which won the "Kenneth Branagh New Drama Award" at the Windsor Fringe Festival in 2015. I have directed six short films, one of which is my first spy film "The Dry Cleaner".
In my spare time I am in the process of researching and writing a number of spy related feature films to direct designed to build off my short film "The Dry Cleaner". As part of this process I run a monthly podcast called "The Dry CleanerCast" in which I interview former spies and experts on terrorism.
