Christian Davis is a budding producer, director, cinematographer, and editor, from St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. He’s been in the film and television industry for over ten years, working his way up through both sides of production and post-production.

 

Christian currently runs his own production company, Davis Film, Inc. and in 2021 produced two short horror films, consecutively, as part of NIFCO’s Picture Start program: Grind Mind’s Mummering: Legends, and Mike Hickey’s That Halloween. Since starting DavisFilm in 2020, he’s taken on more key roles in independent television and film productions. He’s affiliated with marketing firms in St. John’s, and has also done work on various national campaigns. Christian’s inspiration includes everything from Star Wars and Blade Runner, to The Collective’s mountain bike films, and even other media, such as video games like Breath of the Wild and The Old Republic, and the master piece manga series, Akira. His love of progression never stops, and he’s even started experimenting in design with Unreal Engine for the next level of production.

 

Recent production credits include director on the upcoming mountain bike series Ride The Rock, director of photography on Kerrin Rafuse’s short La Veillee, and camera operator on web series These Are My Mountains & on Cody Westman’s documentary Hell Or Clean Water. Mummering Legends and That Halloween are currently on the film festival circuit, with the former getting reviewed in Rue Morgue magazine’s December 2021 issue, and the latter getting nominated for best short film at 2021 Blood In The Snow festival.
