Christopher Chase Pinkalla
I’m from Houston.
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three beauty products would you like to have with you?
Well, hopefully I would have some sort of beauty products could help me make a fire so I could survive.
I just watch what my favorite actors style or try to pick up things from stylish people off the street here in LA.
Going to movies alone, and just pigging out on junk food.
Follow your dreams. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
My film, Land of Leopold, is premiering at the Sun Valley Film Festival in March. Then Reno-Tahoe International Film Festival in June. Premiering on HBO Europe in the next few months. Other than that I’m in LA pursuing acting work and writing another screenplay.
I like to exercise – running on the beach. I also love to read and watch as many films as I can get my hands on.
Use deodorant, brush your teeth, be yourself.
Guitar(s), books, exercise.
Not that irrational – but recently I’ve noticed I’ve developed a fear of heights and flying – Not exactly fun.
I haven’t been on a proper vacation in ages. I mean my idea of a vacation, as of recent has been a week or weekend in San Francisco visiting my brother or NYC visiting my ex-girlfriend.
I don’t really know – I really like to act. So I think it would be something else related to film or theatre.
Film – Force Majeur, Inherent Vice / Books – Garden of Eden and A Moveable Feast (both) by Ernest Hemingway
I’m a big nerd – like to play video games from time to time, and I love to watch romantic movies, love stories and that kind of stuff.
