Filmmaker, writer, speaker, journalist, podcaster, blowhard. Which one describes him best. That’s for you to decide. Too cheeky for a professional bio? Probably. But here we are.
Christopher Allan Smith (Filmmaker) – An Emmy-Award Winning documentarian, Smith lived in Paradise, California with his family until the Camp Fire consumed his home in November 2018. Since then, he has been conducting interviews and research into the history of the fire as well as the lessons taken by first responders, civilians, government officials and private disaster planners, with an eye towards producing multiple projects based on those lessons. He also acted as a Field Producer for Ron Howard’s REBUILDING PARADISE as well as the writer/director of the PBS broadcast documentary A HIGH AND AWFUL PRICE: LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE CAMP FIRE.
