Chris is Manager of Alice Springs Film and Television, a diverse media production and services company based in the very centre of the Australian outback. His September 2012 news coverage of a "fire tornado" in the outback was reported widely throughout the world. Unusually for a simple news camera story, he was interviewed live on both Good Morning America and the NBC Today show on the same morning. Later after twice refusing ex-U.S. Vice President Al Gore's attempts to buy the footage he later also appeared live worldwide on Fox News "Hannity" program and on the Glenn Beck radio show (Chris felt any 'global warming' context would be misleading). The initial report went viral on youtube, attracting over 2 million views in its first 4 days and was featured globally on virtually every national TV news service : see https://vimeo.com/49985537
