Hey there, I’m Chris Hatchett, A commercial & narrative filmmaker living and working in Dallas / Fort Worth.

 

I have a passion for telling stories. Since I was a young child in the 80s with my father’s camcorder on my shoulder filming family functions, life, or making our “improved” versions of SNL skits, I was into capturing life as it happened, and weaving it into a story.

Being able to weave that into a career working with brands to tell stories with both still imaging as well as motion imaging has been my creative highlight for the last part of a decade.

In the Commercial space, I’m not just a “video guy”, but more of a strategic partner. I’m not just interested in a short term relationship with brands, but an ongoing partnership where I can help them use video marketing to grow their business and give tangible ROI’s.

In the Narrative space, I play in both Production Dept. & Camera Dept. I love the logistics of balancing tight budgets and grandiose ideas from the creative team, and defeating the notion of “no we don’t have the budget to do that.” I almost always find a way.

Im also a community architect, driven to unite creatives all over the world and educate future filmmakers. I run a brand called Cinemadventure™ dedicated to creating atmospheres of peer-based learning across some of the most breath-taking environments in the world.
