Chris Gunn, founder of SHOT BY GUNN Productions, got his recent start in the digital movie biz with the production of short films (documentary, music video, mockumentary) and success in seven film festivals in Arizona. He peddled his way up to the professional 58-minute production of “Changing Gears: Flagstaff and The Mountain Bike” through new training and teamwork. Chris collaborated with Brian Cass, Director of Echo Productions, LLC, in Flagstaff. Over the past 25 years, Echo Productions has worked on programs broadcast nationally on the History and Discovery Channels and CNN, as well as international exposure with documentaries at film festivals across the globe.
In addition to making commercials, short films, and collaborating on projects, SHOTBYGUNN is currently in production of a meaning-filled documentary called "Staying Sane in an Insane World."
SBG also writes, films, edits, and produces short videos for local not-for-profit organizations to document their services to the community. Chris' training and years of work as a licensed psychologist often play a complimentary role in the production of these educational shorts.
Bikers, hikers, and bird watchers came out for the big screen viewing of "Changing Gears" at the 2011 Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival. It was a great success. Thanks to all who supported the film festival and this spinning documentary.
The mockumentary "Fab Flag Duo" got two thumbs up in the Cave Creek Film and Arts Festival. William Pierce, the Phoenix Indie Film Examiner, wrote on July 19, 2010:
"The Fabulous Flag Duo" by producer Chris Gunn
Filmmaker Gunn takes us on a playful romp through Flagstaff as we search for the elusive cross-country skiing duo of Burt and Bob. Along the way we meet a cornucopia of Flagstaff citizenry as they relate their encounters with the pair. The Fabulous Flag Duo is less a documentary and more a lovingly created tribute to fellow outdoor enthusiasts.
Final Take – Ski you later.
