Chris Modoono

Bio

Chris Modoono is a “New York Filmmaker” living in Los Angeles, which gives him a bit of an identity crisis. He’s worked with brands like Amazon, Mars Candy, AT&T, Proctor & Gamble, Nickelodeon, Nationwide, and Technicolor, and celebrities like, Robert DeNiro, Whoopi Goldberg, and Katie Holmes. His work is rooted in strong comedic sensibilities. “Whatever the length of story I’m telling, I can make the audience laugh. I believe this comes from my ability to very quickly build a connection with the audience. They get to feel like they are in on the joke while the characters are not.”

Tenured, the feature film he co-wrote and directed for Fox Digital studio, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, and won the audience award at the Maui Film Festival.

It’s a Hit! The TV pilot he co-wrote and directed for The Orchard, won the Virgin Produced award at SeriesFest Season 2. The Orchard premiered the pilot (broken up into 6 episodes) on Funny Or Die.

At a towering 6 feet 5 inches (196 cm), he possesses the unique competitive advantage of being able to spot colleagues in a crowded area quickly.
