For me a good film is not just telling a story, its taking the viewers on your journey"

Chase in Malaysia shooting a commercial

Chase is all about unique shooting styles and methods, he loves and regularly uses camera drones in his shoots to get ariel angles that no other camera man could get. POV angles are often taken advantages of in his work and camera spins that match the athletes movements. "Surely the most important skills needed in film making is an eye for the shot, good composition and a camera move that compliments the action unfolding in front of the camera" That mixed with a huge drive and passion to create will ensure any project Chase works on will have its own unique magic.
