Chris M. Allport
Thrust into spotlight at the tender age of four, Christopher M. Allport was quickly discovered fearlessly singing America the Beautiful — standing atop a grand piano at a local Japanese restaurant — by former Radio City Rockette, Madylin Clark. Thrown immediately into classes taught by Hollywood golden-era pioneers, and drilled in the disciplines, arts and techniques of television, film, theater, music and dance, Allport earned his stage debut at the Pantages for the Walt Disney Company by the age of ten.
After earning his BA, in Film Production, magna cum laude, with double minors in classical music and journalism, from Loyola Marymount University, Allport continued his studies in the private studios of Maria Newman, the Mary Pickford Foundation, the Annenberg Foundation, the Hearst Foundation and in the editorial traditions of legendary Oscar winner, Walter Murch.
Following a successful career as a professional young performer, working with directors, musicians and performers like Steven Spielberg, John Williams, Michael Kamen, Carol Burnett and Debbie Reynolds, Mr. Allport realized that basking in the golden-era’s afterglow wouldn’t satisfy his ambitions for contemporary content creation and storytelling.
