(quoted from bio section of website by Matt Goodman of North Texas Daily)
Christiano Dias (b. 1986) was born in Brazil and raised in Texas. At a young age, he was exposed to an elementary form of storytelling by writing short stories and later drawing storyboards in art class. Further interest in filmmaking came at the age of twelve after experimenting with an old family camcorder. Over time, Chris has vicariously created over 10 short films and received awards including the Texas Lonestar Emmy Award Nomination (Story, 2006), Ford Salute to Education Scholarship for proficiency in digital filmmaking, (2005), Apple Student Spotlight (2006), Official Selection to the Midnight Film Festival (2009), Grand Prize West Hall Film Festival (2006, 2007), Official Selection to The Texas Film Review for his film “20” in 2007, and several other film festival awards and recognition in 2009.
While at the University of North Texas (2005-2009), Chris wrote, directed and produced seven short films and a television show for North Texas Television. Chris has interned with AT&T for digital sports media promotional videos, worked as a Production Assistant for locally filmed commercials and television shows including Prison Break, The Deep End, and America’s Got Talent. He worked at The Studios at Las Colinas (Irving, TX) as Creative Media Director, where he also produced a lot of his own films. Chris has a Bachelor’s Degree in English with a focus on Creative Writing from The University of North Texas and plans to additionally pursue an MFA with a focus on Film Directing in 2012.
Chris has recently wrapped as Director of Photography on “The Life Experiment” (link here) and producer on “The Long Run” (link here). He currently resides in Burbank and is shooting a project on the RED, which he wrote and directed.
