Our Film and Production Class (also known as Metro Film Institute at Arlington) is led by Chris Donaldson, an American filmmaker / producer / writer born in Philadelphia, PA. In 2001, he became fascinated with the film industry and had the pleasure of meeting and studying under world renowned film director / producer John Singleton. In 2002, he took interest in film and attended school at American Film Institute (AFI), one of the most well-known and respected film schools in the world. After graduating, Mr. Donaldson began to soar in the production house circuit landing jobs as a grip, gaffer, audio tech, boom operator, associate producer and then graduating to 1AC, 1AD cinematographer and DP. In 2006, Mr. Donaldson landed his first directorial debut project producing several commercials for Sony, Toyota, and Honda. It is for his unique style of shooting and the attention he gives to details that he is credited with being the network filmmaker. In 2012, he landed a multi-year distribution deal with "The Orchard." This deal assures that all of AME Production Group movies, records, videos and television series will be distributed, marketed and sold in all major retail stores such as Walmart, Best Buy, Target, FYE, Barnes N Noble, and also shown and sold on digital and online stores such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, iTunes, xfinity, Comcast, COX, CHARTER, Verizon Fios TV, Mediacom and many more. Shown below are a few photo highlights from the tutelage being provided to our scholars at Arlington Christian School.
