ALL IS LOST
J.C. CHANDOR (Director, Writer) has honed his own subtle yet distinct narrative voice and vision over the past 15 years through directing, producing and writing award-winning documentaries, commercials and narrative films.
Chandor was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for his debut feature film Margin Call (2011), which he also directed. The film has a star-studded ensemble cast and was awarded "Best Directorial Debut" by The National Board of Review, "Breakthrough Director" by the New York Film Critics Circle, "Best Original Screenplay" by the San Francisco Film Critics Circle, and won an Australian Academy Award for "Best Screenplay." The film, which received the "Best First Feature Award" as well as the "Robert Altman Award" (given to one film's director, casting director and its ensemble cast) at the Independent Spirit Awards, was named one of the top 10 films of 2011 in publications such as The New York Times, Rolling Stone, New York Magazine, The New Yorker, New York Post, and The Huffington Post.
Chandor's commercial work over the years has included projects for a long list of clients including Subaru Motors of America, Red Bull Racing, Major League Soccer, BMW-Oracle Racing, America Online, DC Shoes, and Carhartt Outdoor Clothing.
A few of Chandor's other notable credits include producing a six-part concert film series for AOL/Warner Brothers as well as working with Sting, Elton John, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Beck. His debut narrative-film writing-directing credits include the short film Despacito (2004) starring Will Arnett. He is also currently in development on projects with Warner Bros Pictures, Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way and Universal Pictures.
Chandor holds a bachelor's degree in American studies and film studies from The College of Wooster in Ohio and studied film production at New York University. He grew up in the suburbs of New York City and London, England, and currently lives outside New York City with his wife, painter Cameron Goodyear, and their two children.
