Chris Villamar – 1st AD






Always having a love for film from a young age Christopher Villamar reached a point where watching simply was not enough, he wanted to be part of the process of making them. Having finished High School and not sure where to go he started getting involved in writing scripts and getting any role on a film set he could.

After a couple of years of this he knew he had to step it up and so 2011 he enrolled to study in the Certificate IV in Screen and Media at Metro Screen. There he discovered the role of 1st AD suited his fanatical organisation tendencies. With friends made at Metro Screen he ventured out where they made several shorts and music videos. That group went to create the production company WIST and came across a great script which they are now tackling as their first feature. Having extensive experience in this role Christopher naturally fell into the shoes of the 1st AD for this production.
