Christopher Carson Emmons grew up in Milwaukee, where he had a great interest in filmmaking. While earning his Bachelor's at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago he directed the dark comedy "Shine Baby Shine" about a bumbling shampoo salesman. He went on to direct veteran film/TV actor Mark Metcalf (Animal House, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Seinfeld) in "Prone," and "Marked Man," starring Jaiden Kaine (Luke Cage, Vampire Diaries, Hidden Figures). Christopher's romantic comedy with a twist, "Serial Daters Anonymous," starring Sam Page (Mad Men, House of Cards, Gossip Girl) and Scotty Dickert (XOXO, The Last Ship), premiered at the 2014 Milwaukee Film Festival, where it went on to get a limited theatrical release. His short horror/satire "New Skin" garnered international recognition and acclaim in its 2015-2016 festival run. Emmons' upcoming feature, a cerebral drama/thriller called "The Eighth House," starring Cortney Palm (Zombeavers, Sushi Girl), is set for release in 2017.
