“Fans of electroshock therapy, psychological horror movies and neurosurgeons screaming at paranoia’s poison door should delight at director Dark Details’ ability to convey some high-level techno-fear.” ALTERNATIVE PRESS
Hello there, I'm Chris James Cunningham - a visual artist/musician from Seattle, WA. I work as a freelance creative for different businesses/bands/people doing everything from custom music and video editing, to directing/shooting.
Music videos are a major passion of mine. I love the process of attempting to conjure up imagery that shares a thread of DNA with the song. When you arrive at that spark of an idea, and it’s almost like a jolt of electricity in your brain telling you: “THIS IS IT.” …that is a very good feeling.
My work has been featured on or shown by: Alternative Press, New Noise Magazine, Seattle Weekly, City Arts Magazine, Dangerous Minds, CVLTNATION, Washington’s Natural History Museum (The Burke), KEXP.ORG, and SIFF’s Sync Music Video Fest.
