Before we drop the official trailer to my documentary “Walking Dreams” I wanted to introduce you to the visionary director behind it all. So who is Director Chad Ross? Below you will find samples of his work in addition to a bio with his full story. We cannot wait to show you what we have created with “Walking Dreams” but first, meet Chad Ross!
His 13 years breakin, nine of which were spent teaching classes, give Chad Ross a rare mix of technical skills and knowledge of the subject matter. While still a student at The Art Institute of Seattle he directed a series of cutting-edge breakin compilations for “Circle of Fire” that were sold exclusively in Japan.
In the past year he has shot all-access video for recording stars Duran Duran, Nas, The Fratellis, The Presets, MIMS, The Clipse, Bun B, Devin the Dude and Swizz Beatz. In August of 2007 he directed the Dyme Def “3BadBrothaaas” music video making it his fifth work of the sort.
Although the contracting work led to a preferred vendor status with Microsoft Zune, and the music videos brought media attention, his real passion lied with bigger projects. He has two feature length documentaries in production: “Walking Dreams” about painter David Garibaldi, and the feature-length documentary/tutorial the Way of the Bboy which is a collaboration with director Zak Tucker.
I’m proud to call him director of my story and documentary “Walking Dreams”, but also proud to call him a friend.
