Commercial Work

I specialize in content for non-profits and educational institutions—like Hillsdale College, where I have directed TV and web spots (and lots of social content) seen by millions. 

I have the distinct pleasure to work with production companies, crews, and collaborators from across the country who have elevated the work with their many talents. You know who you are.

Hi. I'm Chandler.

I believe that telling stories is one of the most human things we can do.

Our very existence revolves around narrative: we reflect on the stories of our lives and call them memories; we observe the stories of the past and call it history; we contemplate the stories of God and know it to be gospel. 

The mundane occurrences in the lives of regular people are charged with profound significance. I want to uncover this significance in my films.

This is the philosophy I bring to every film I make. You have a story. Let me tell it.
