Christopher Alender Bio:
A graduate of the Florida State University Film School, Christopher Alender left his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, to begin a career in Hollywood. His first foothold was in the movie trailer industry, where he developed a keen sense of how to tell a story in the fastest, most visually impactful way possible. In 2002, Christopher then went on to found Soapbox Films, a full-service production company that creates long and short form original and branded content. As CEO and CCO of Soapbox Films, Christopher’s focus is now on pursuing feature filmmaking full-time with the unique resources of a top-notch production facility and staff at his fingertips. One of his personal projects, Eye of the Storm, became an award-winning viral sensation and was featured in American Cinematographer for its cutting-edge, not-of-this-world visual aesthetic. More recently he’s co-produced indie standouts Southbound and XX, and in the past year developed and produced three feature films including Emma Tammi’s The Wind and Roxanne Benjamin’s debut feature, Body at Brighton Rock.
