Chad Tingle
Director/Producer

A New Yorker by way of Jamaica brought up in two locales that are opposites, Chad’s point of view is a result of what these places have to offer.

After receiving a B.S. in communications from the University of Miami, Chad started his career directing documentaries that explore race-based gentrification. The female African-American custom of wearing hats to church services on Sundays, and Miami’s soul music scene in the mid to late 60s

His films have been invited to screen at SXSW, Aspen Shortsfest, Miami International Film Festival, Maryland Film Festival and Cleveland International Film Festival.

In 2015, Chad transitioned into commercial directing. His work includes spots for Anthem’ s Simply Healthcare, lifestyle campaigns for Oakley, Resorts World Casinos, and Broward Health.
