I’m Chris O’Brien! I’m an actor with almost 15 years experience, working in almost every possible medium. If you live in Southern California, you may have seen me in the “Random Acts of Helpfulness” Honda commercials. I’ve also done a national Dunkin’ Donuts commercial and I currently have a Sprint commercial airing nation-wide.
In Film, I’ve appeared as Mark in Found Footage 3D which is currently finishing up a tour of film festivals and will see distribution in the coming months. I played Ronald in the FOX Digital studio film Tenured, and I’ve also had a couple roles on TV, most notably on FOX’s Rosewood.
Though my roots are in theatre (I performed in over 30 productions in four year in college), I also have developed a ton of experience by working on web / new media projects, such as Classic Alice, Ride With Me, CSU: Crime Stoppers Unit, Barely Pet Parents (co-starring with Colleen Ballinger), Not a Plan, Rom(dot)Com (by Cracked), and the upcoming series Bunkheads!
I can give tips and insight about all these different mediums - and every part of the process from fund-raising to post-production, but most of my knowledge and experience is as a performer, so my most valuable thoughts will come from that point of view.
I’m really excited to be on Stareable today and happy to share my perspective as an actor when it comes to indie and low-budget filmmaking! Ask away!
