10 - Writer & Director Chris Blake - How to Find and Work with a Talented Crew

This week we have a conversation with director, writer, and producer Chris Blake. Chris is an award-winning screenwriter and director and in-demand script revisionist. He has done rewrites for indie-films and multi-million dollar features alike. He originally began his career in the music industry in 2007 and played the Vans Warped Tour alongside the bands Paramore and Thirty Seconds to Mars. Chris used that experience to transition into directing music videos.

Chris is also the co-founder of the Nashville Independent Film Festival (NIFF) and currently serves as the Artistic Director. Chris owns and operates Red Vessel Entertainment in Nashville, Tennessee.

Chris directed and wrote his first feature film, All Light Will End, in which Bonsai Creative came on as Associate Executive Producers and Project Consultants. All Light Will End will be available on iTunes on November 2nd.
