Director Biography - Chris Cheek

Born and raised in Midland, I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.S. in Radio-Television-Film. I am a young filmmaker with a background in sound mixing and music composition and I hope to bring my love for sound into the stories I write. A folk musician and avid folk music nerd, I like to think about what I do as a means of participating in a great storytelling tradition that has spanned thousands of years, capturing the imagination of those that love to dream.

Director Statement

Killer Killer is a story about possession and selfishness. It is a warning and a reminder that people do terrible things for those that they cling to, and innocent people often get hurt in the way. Framed as a gothic mystery, it is a tragic tale that attempts to show how relationships between people break down when an unhealthy love takes over.
