CHRIS METZLER

Director, Producer

After graduating from USC with a degree in business and cinema, Chris' film career has taken him from the depths of agency work, to coordinating post-production for awful American movies seen late at night in Belgium.

His film directing and producing work has resulted in frequent partnerships with Jeff Springer, where together they've criss-crossed the country with the aid of caffeinated beverages and made their way in the Nashville country and Christian music video industries, before finally forsaking their souls to commercial LA rock n’ roll. These misadventures eventually culminated in them winning a Billboard Magazine Music Video Award.

Chris now finds himself pursuing docs featuring Australian opal miners, gay truck drivers and evangelical Christian backpackers.
