Chances and I met over 15 years ago in Atlanta through mutual friends. He had just begun his career in acting, and I don’t think I was into film or anything at that point. We weren’t super close, but we always had fun together. One day, I was leaving another friend’s condo (ironically where I would later film my thesis, Nebula) and ran into Chances who was working as concierge. One of those random moments when worlds collide that you know means something but you’re not sure what, so you let it go. Flash forward to a couple of years ago, I reconnected with Chances while visiting NYC. He mentioned he was starting to audition again. One thing you can tell from first meeting him, is that he’s passionate about his craft.
