SO... WHAT'S AN ELLIOTT CHRIST, AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
Where to start... I started out life in a hospital in Pennsylvania, and twenty-some years later, I'm sitting at a computer in my home in Brooklyn, typing these very words on a MacBook.
Between then and now, I've done a ton of things. I've edited docs and promos, working in all aspects of production, alongside Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning directors. I've also made sandwiches and hauled tape decks onto trucks. I've played with bands at The Bitter End and The Knitting Factory, and I've played solo at bizarre open mikes between a palm reader and a guy lipsyncing The Beatles. I've designed fliers and distributed promotional material for films, bands, and nonprofits. I've written for a regional teen supplement and for The Onion News Network.
This site is a portfolio of some of the things I've done. Not all of the things, mind you. I'm not putting up times I slept, for instance, because there are far too many of them to fit here, and frankly, they're pretty boring. Laying in bed, shifting around, maybe snoring...ya seen one, ya seen 'em all. What you will see are videos I've put together, pictures I've drawn, music I've played, words I've typed, and so on. I'm always updating this site as I'm doing new things, so stay posted!
P.S. Yes, "Christ" is my real last name. And it's pronounced with a short I, like "fist."
