Chase CrawfordSpecial Guest Speaker: Chase Crawford

The young dad has some impressive accomplishments so far in his young career, appearing in Sundance and TIFF selections and working on ad campaigns with Uber, Taco Bell, Acura and Samsung… But that was just what he did in 2016.

Less than a year after graduating high school, he landed a role in the James Franco/Nick Jonas film “Goat” and since then, hasn’t turned back.

“I just kept taking opportunities… At that point I was taking everything I was offered just knowing it would lead me to the next gig… I did a lot of work in 2015 that set myself up for a successful 2016.”

Chase has 3 movies slated to come out this year and is already hard at work in 2017. He acquired minority ownership of Seattle-based startup Skylinyl, a deal that was finalized the first week of January.


Film Connections is the monthly social gathering for filmmakers and film lovers. Typically hosted on the last Tuesday of the month, Film Connections offers tips and hints to strengthen skills, critical perspectives on film genres, screenings of films connected to local filmmakers or networking among aspiring and professional filmmakers.
