Director Biography - Chris Pittas

Chris Pittas writes the dark-edgy-funny. You know those thrillers, dramas and horror flicks that in the midst of steely tension suddenly make you laugh harder than you probably should and make you doubt your own moral compass? That's what Chris is going for.

After too many years desperately trying to abandon any hope of making it in the arts, Chris gave in to his insanity. He got serious about writing screenplays in 2018 and found success moving toward his goal of subverting genre paradigms.

His horror-comedy 1 hour pilot, CITY OF SOULS is in Coverfly's Top 3% in its Genre/Format (gaining attention from Coverfly's Development Team), made Top 100 in Launch Pad's Pilot Competition, and was a Semifinalist in ScreenCraft's Screenwriting Fellowship.

His first feature SCORPIONS has been generating heat lately, winning Honorable Mention in ISA's Fast-Track Competition which earned him a spot on ISA's Development Slate. His work includes 2 other acclaimed pilots, HARDCORE '86 and DRYVR, a short horror film, ART KILLS, and his service-industry comic strip TIPS. He's currently working on another feature, WRITER, and has several other pilots and features in the queue.

Chris' ultimate goal is to see his stories produced on screens and to shepherd their production as a director and showrunner.
