Chris is a native San Diegan, who got his start in filmmaking when he was 15 years old by doing the "Morning Announcements" at St. Augustine High School. His biggest achievement in Hollywood to date is ironically not as a film director or producer, but as Will Ferrell’s Stunt Double in such films as "Anchorman," "Stranger Than Fiction" and "Kicking and Screaming." He doesn’t claim he’s a stuntman, but looks at working on those professional sets as an educational experience that showed him first hand the process of filmmaking. And it also gave him the opportunity to write, produce and direct his first feature film "Carts."
Cashman most recently produced the award winning feature films; "A Life Lived" (starring Denise Richards and Jennifer Taylor) released on Amazon, "Club Frontera” released on Lionsgate Pantaya, “San Diego’s Gay Bar History” the Emmy nominated documentary released on PBS, "Xolos: Tijuana's Team" released on Fox Sports Network: FS1, FS2, Fox Deportes and "To Hell and Gone" currently being distributed by Gravitas in North America.
