Commercial Work

I specialize in content for mission driven companies and institutions like Kite and Key Media, Hillsdale College, and many more. I'm always open to talk about a project, big or small.

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.

Short Films

Learn about my upcoming short, Double Bondsmen, a comedy about our dreams and the lies they tell us. After twin brothers hear a gunshot and discover a body, they see an opportunity to chase their outlandish dream of bounty hunting by tracking down the killer.

Or watch Into the Plainsa drama about a mother who departs on a road trip to escape her grief after a death in the family. Filmed across iconic locations in Colorado, the film features a soulful performance from Maggie Alexander.

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.
