Director Biography - Michael Chin

Kleos Chin (real name is Michael Chin). I started out acting at a very young age; I went to a performing arts elementary, middle, and high school for acting. I have won monologue competitions at theater festivals in my area! I am currently 17 years old and my birthday is June 20 1999. Although I studied theater in high school, I quickly grabbed an interest into writing scripts, directing, and then acting in my own films. I took up such a love for writing because, I have plenty of stories that i want to tell because I believe my voice is powerful and I have so many ideas. I believe that every piece of art should hold up a mirror to society and tell a great story. I currently have a web show out on YouTube called "The Root Of All Evil" it's doing numbers on YouTube, and it's a really big deal in my area . On social media, I go by the stage name "Kleos" which means well known, and famous in Greek. On social media I make relatable funny comedy skits that get thousands of retweets, hundreds of likes, thousands of views, and everybody talking about it.
