CHRMEDIA is Owned/Operated by Chris Rogers. This brief About section is also the Bio section and learn more about his Training.
While living/working/surviving in Los Angeles, Chris got the chance to go back to school and got a degree in MultiMedia from West LA College. Working on a mostly project-based basis (web), he worked at most of the major studios. During this time, he learned how to transition from in front of the camera to behind it.
While living in Las Vegas, he often served as the contact person for many organizations/companies that come here for conventions. One of his favorites is the MediaMotion Ball during National Association of Broadcasters (NAB). Each year the number of attendees (and value of prize list) grows. Last year (2012), over 400+ attendees sat down to a dinner where the raffle prizes added up to $70,000+. Chris’ main job is creating the video loop that played during the event, showcasing all those companies’ logos, product art, yada.
After living/working/surviving in Los Angeles and Las Vegas for the past 25 years, Chris recently moved back home to Louisville, Kentucky. Chris was born and raised in Northern KY and attended the University of Louisville on a full academic Pre-Med scholarship. He represented his high school in the first Kentucky Governor’s Scholars Program. While studying Pre-Med, he also took classes in the Arts and graduated with a BFA in Acting, Minor in Voice and began his dance training with the School of the Louisville Ballet. In his Junior year, he decided he would rather be poor and happy than rich and unhappy. I am SO glad to be HOME!
He was the right hand man of the founder of LA Final Cut Pro User Group (LAFCPUG). It is the largest user group in the world. LAFCPUG has 2000+ members worldwide. 500+ regularly attend every monthly meeting.
He is a frequent volunteer (since 1999) for the Motion Graphics of LA.

He is also an active contributor (since 2000) to the AE Newslist, the largest AE Community in the world with 3000+ members worldwide.
