I believe in the power of storytelling. We all have a story. Here's a bit of mine...
My name is Chris Kekaniokalani Bright and I'm a photographer and filmmaker based in Hawaii. I attended Kamehameha School in Honolulu for thirteen years, kindergarten through 12th grade. They call us “lifers.” I went on to study film and music at Chapman University.
After KICKSTARTING a campaign to raise $23,000, I brought together my best friends in college to create my very first short film TSURU. We were blessed to have it premiere at several film festivals across the country, to include the San Jose International Film Festival, Sedona International Film Festival, and Orlando Film Festival.
Soon after, I began a new job at Walt Disney Animation Studios. I had the ultimate privilege of getting to work on the film "Moana." To this day, I think of that as one of the highlights of my life.
Since then I’ve been working on several film projects. My script CONVICTION helped me get onto the 2018 Black List - Hollywood’s best screenplays of the year. It also got me onto the 2018 Young and Hungry List as well as the 2018 Hit List.
I also have another life passion...
