Director Chris Foster
After almost two decades as a producer/director for commercials, corporate videos, educational work, children’s programming, and infomercials, the twice Emmy-nominated director (“Activity TV”) has garnered accolades and awards for his work for clients: Comcast, NutriSystem, Avis, the History Channel, A&E, TLC, Glaxo SmithKline, UPenn, and DuPont.
“Black and White and Dead All Over” was Foster’s first foray into full-length documentary filmmaking. He has always had a desire to use the craft of filmmaking for positive change in the world. While traveling the globe, Foster has used his compelling storytelling and expert filmmaking talents to bring attention to tales of human struggle and perseverance.
Foster traveled to South Africa on a church mission and created a series of videos to build awareness and raise funds for a relief effort. The church has since raised over $1 million for this cause.
In addition, he traveled to Haiti shortly after the 2010 earthquake, with a consortium of American pest control professionals to assess the deplorable conditions of the hospitals in the capital, and try to determine a course of action to minimize the pest problems there.
