Chris created/produced/directed his passion project: MAJOR DAMAGE, a short 3D film that went on to win several awards at film festivals before expanding into a comic book series and limited merchandise, including a retro metal lunchbox!
It is a story of young Melvin abducted by aliens on Halloween night. They mistook him in costume for the “real” Major Damage giving him the powers of the comic book hero and returning him to Earth.
Major Damage appeared in The Savage Dragon comics published by Image Comics and made a brief appearance in Kevin’s Smith’s film, Jersey Girl.
Currently, Chris has storyboarded and is animating two new short films. Major Damage: The New Recruit and Major Damage: Operation Ginormo.
