American Primitive [aka Wild About Harry]-

“Chris is a wonderful DP to work with especially for those directors that cherish the beauty of film and its glory found in shadow and light.” said [Gwen] Wynne.
USC In Motion

“American Primitive is a beautifully crafted, character-driven film inspired by true events.”
LGBT Films


Sea of Dreams

“The most noticeable highlight of the film is the effulgent cinematography by Chris Chomyn and the way the camera endows every scene with picturesque beauty. Bright and dazzling colors are immediately apparent in every daytime shot, and the vibrancy of the people and exotic locale is gushingly aglow. The actors are likewise touched by bold hues, and everyone in the film is radiant beyond what is witnessed in most recent films. The fantasy elements are accentuated by this seemingly magical cinematography.”
MoviePulse

“With more blues than a thousand seaside sunsets comes the Mexican fable Sea of Dreams, one of the most beautiful-looking films to grace the screen all year….Sea of Dreams is a different movie experience and one of the best September releases. For those willing to take a cinematic chance, take a dip into this little gem.”
PopSyndicate

“Sea of Dreams… evokes an era of story telling, devoid of sensationalism and irony… a rare treasure”
Variety

“Never has the screen been filled with so much beauty!”
Sweet Connection


Lockdown

“The movie has two primary if crude virtues: First and best, it has an overwhelming sense of place…”
Washington Post

“‘Lockdown… is engrossing.”
AccessAtlana


Phantasm III & IV

“Particularly effective are the visuals….The film looks great.”
CultureDose

“Shot…with a thrilling flair that rivals any studio film.”
