Chad Howitt

A Los Angeles native, Chad Howitt didn’t have a traditional filmmaker’s pedigree or training. His initial exposure to art and media came from spending his teenage years working at video stores, record shops, and tattoo parlors. After graduating from the Art Center College of Design, he went on to work at world class companies such as Psyop, Motion Theory, and Sony Imageworks.

Utilizing his post-production background, he creates spots that are narratively driven, and visually dramatic. His clients include companies such as Volkswagen, Google, Nike, Honda, Marvel, The Grammys, and Skullcandy.

His latest documentary short, “Welcome to The Last Bookstore” has won several awards, and is currently in competition in festivals around the US, including this year’s Cinequest.
