"Chris is a great director! He is very professional and patient. Not only is able to execute his vision, but he listens to his cast and crew, and is humble enough to take their input if it makes the final product better." - Trevor Duke, actor ("Undatement Center")


"Chris participated in the Moving Picture Institute's paid internship program, placed at Oddlot Entertainment in Los Angeles. He always reported back to MPI in a timely and professional manner, made the most of his internship time, and exuded passion and talent for filmmaking. We are proud to call him an MPI intern and we look forward to seeing his future work and accomplishments in the entertainment industry." - Lana Link, VP of Development at Moving Picture Institute

"Wise beyond his years and dedicated to the craft of storytelling, Chris Esper stands apart from most directors here in New England. As an actor, I found it to be extremely comfortable working with Chris. He gave me the creative space to bring to life the character as I felt it needed to be. He was considerate and very open to my ideas of character interpretation and when needed, he gently suggested additional options for my performance. I would highly recommend taking the opportunity to work with Chris if the opportunity presents itself."

- Jose Gonsalves, Actor ("Beacons")



"Chris is a great director to work with. Very professional, well thought out shot plans, and gives direction to bring out the best performance in an actor. Everyone on his sets has a great time, along with getting done a great quality of filmmaking." 

- Dave Sackal, Actor ("Beacons" and "Please Punish Me")
