Please introduce yourself. What do you do? Why? What do you want people to know about you?
My name is chandler alligood I am a filmmaker and actor. I loved acting and watching movies my whole life and always wanted to be apart of the big screen somehow and making films was always a passion of mine ever since picking up a camera and filming action figures on a kitchen table. I have been making a name for myself for a while now.
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
I always asked myself the Same question, why me? What’s makes me different from anyone else they all have the same talent if not way more than me and are better equipped to the jobs and with that I struggled a lot with identifying who I was and what I will become my family and friends keep me motivated to not give up even now when things seemed hopeless. I love what I do and my passion is this line of work and I’m not gonna stop doing it as long as I’m able to pick up a camera and write a good story and get the chance to get out there and meet new people and make a way for myself and to help provide for my family.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.
I used to stay up all hours of the night hoping and praying for something else to do when filming came As a loss. When I was on stage acting out I felt like as if maybe I shouldn’t be doing this. But when I read a good story or get a great idea throughout the day I can’t help but get exited and can’t wait to write it out or pick up a camera and film even just my family in the living room and getting to have fun on screen with my buddy’s and make a truly good story from the heart come to life. I knew this was what I wanted to do, and I loved it with all my heart and am determined to always keep going.
What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?
That’s a tough one most definitely. Of all the things that came up in my life the hardest was not necessarily going against the odds of my haters or of people making me feel like I was not enough but more of the man in the mirror. Identifying who you want to be and how to get there is a real struggle. The hardest challenge was to accept not everyone will agree and not everything will go according to plans. And sometimes the best moments in life are ones against the odds and against “yourself”. But I know I continue to keep going against those odds everyday!
Who are the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could elevate your career or business? Why these specific individuals?
jon favreau, sylvester Stallone, Henry cavill. Those guys are so inspirational and I have always dreamed of meeting them one day. Jon brought so many comics fans like myself and star wars fans dreams to life on the big screen. Sylvester Stallone brought an iconic character to life as well as being motivation for me to be a director and an actor at the same time as he is who helped bring those dreams to life. And Henry cavil is such a great person and a big nerd like myself who shows that in the characters he plays with such passion and helps me strive to want to become a better actor every day and man of steel is one of my favorite movies ever!
