Chris is Manager of Alice Springs Film and Television, a diverse media production and services company based in the very centre of the Australian outback. He has international credits as a Cinematographer, Writer and Location Manager. Additionally, he produces, directs, casts and location scouts.
His September 2012 news coverage of a "fire tornado" was reported widely throughout the world. Such was the reaction to the vision, he was interviewed live in the U.S. on both ABC's "Good Morning America" and the NBC "Today" show on the same morning. Images featured in almost every major newspaper, TV news service and blog worldwide. Later, after twice refusing ex-U.S. Vice President Al Gore's attempts to buy the footage, he also appeared live globally on Fox News "Hannity" program and on the Glenn Beck radio show (Chris felt any 'global warming' context would be misleading). The initial 7 network Australia TV report went viral on youtube, attracting over 2 million views in its first 4 days before being pulled for a copyright breach: see vimeo.com/49985537 His combined video productions on his youtube and vimeo channels have had a total of more than 1.8 million unique views as at February 2015.
