Read Bio

Director of Film4 shorts NIGHT FEED starring Alice Lowe & GOBLIN? Starring Holiday Grainger & David Oakes. His 3 feature films comprise of Prison based, Vampire horror/comedy: FANGED UP (2017), Xmas, Zombie comedy: STALLED (2013) & his debut feature, FREAK OUT (2006) which is essentially a 90 minute essay in how not to make a debut movie – that Steven Spielberg protégé: Mick Garris declared Christian’s direction as ‘a wild, woolly sledgehammer to the face of Hollywood conformity, a brilliant and gleeful celebration of movie-brat arrested development ’ It must also be noted that Mick Garris is one of the nicest working directors in the World and would likely find something positive to say about his worst enemy.

When not doing any of the above – CJ can be found directing commercials and content for the likes of Evian, Ferrari, Cirque Du Soleil and Sony Playstation. CJ
