About Chris Corrado:
As a boy growing up in Richland, Washington, Chris had a vivid imagination, particularly when it came to superheroes. The family’s VHS copy of Richard Donner’s “Superman” was virtually worn out from overuse.
Upon realizing that his favorite childhood hero was brought to life through innovative filmmaking techniques, Chris set his sights on Hollywood.
At 17 years old, 1st Assistant Director and family friend Jim Van Wyck gave Chris his first industry job on the film Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home. The experience solidified Chris’ career plans, and after two years at Gonzaga University, he transferred to the School of TV and Film at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.
Serendipitously, during his time at LMU Chris was awarded his first internship in the Warner Brothers office of director Richard Donner. His print of the 1979 “Superman” poster, signed by Donner after completing his internship, is still one of Chris’ most prized possessions.
Chris’ career has been a balance of opportunities coming from both the creative and logistical side of the filmmaking process. Out of 950 applicants, he was one of just 17 selected for the 2005 DGA Assistant Director Training Program. As an Assistant Director, Chris has supported major motion pictures like Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Eagle Eye, and Charlie Wilson’s War. His major network TV credits include ABC’s Castle and NBC’s ER and Life, among others. His understanding of production efficiency makes Chris a strong directing candidate for music videos where time and money are both in limited supply.
On the creative side, Chris has directed music videos for Jimmy Needham, Tree63, and JR Richards (featuring actress Jessy Schram of Unstoppable and Once Upon A Time). He has a unique sensitivity to the meaning and mood of the music he listens to, and has proven himself adept when it comes to translating a mood visually to his audience.
Through his years of production work, Chris has built a wide network of skilled crew members, equipment houses and top-of-the-line services, many of which have contributed to his music videos at deeply discounted costs. When it comes to maximizing production value and keeping dollars on the screen, Chris is uniquely positioned.
Chris is a devoted fan of rock music. His playlists are constant rotations of Breaking Benjamin, RED, Anberlin, and Skillet—who he has seen live 35 times. Other favorites include Mat Kearney and, unashamedly, just about anything from the 80’s.
He currently lives in Burbank, California with his wife Amy and a handful of Superman action figures.
