More On Chris St. Croix


Born in New York to a Brooklyn business professor and a former nun from Pennsylvania. Raised in New Jersey, Europe, Boston, L.A., and now Nashville, TN. As a teen, I was hell-bent on filmmaking until music took over, landing me in Hollywood as a long-haired heavy metal singer. A storyteller, just louder. I paid the bills by working as an extra on sets with everyone from Tarantino to Zemeckis and soaked it all in. When music shot me back across the country to Nashville, by day I worked my way up the crew ladder to Assistant Director. When the rekindling of my childhood passion couldn't be ignored any longer, I wrote and directed the short comedy "Rocco & Vinnie." Since then, I've written, directed, and released, through Gravitas Ventures, two features and directed shorts, commercials, and music videos. My period supernatural thriller, "Final," is my latest short supernatural thriller. I have multiple finished screenplays and pilots ready to produce and am always looking for collaborators to make that happen.


Chris' Films:


  • Final (short thriller)


  • Midnight (short supernatural)


  • In The Dark (feature horror)


  • Dirty Little Secret 3D (short thriller)


  • Shattered (feature drama/thriller)


  • Rocco & Vinnie (short comedy)
