Hello my name is Chris Carr and I am a London based Director for commercials, narrative films and stage plays.
My passion is being able to nurture an idea from its beginning through to completion. I have directed award winning stage plays, short films, music videos and commercials. I have also worked as a producer and I currently run a podcast called "The Dry CleanerCast". The majority of my work is available to view on this website.
Below is a summary of the range of projects I have worked on:
