MEET CHRIS: A FORCE OF HIS OWN

Real blu customer, Chris, has overcome major obstacles to achieve his dreams.

The professional video editor who resides in Charlotte, NC has always had aspirations of working in film ever since growing up in his small Louisiana town. But after his first year of film school, everything changed.

Louisiana was rocked by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and Chris, whose home was completely flooded, lost all of his belongings as a result. But rather than lose hope and give up on his dreams, Chris returned to school and used his experiences to create something great.

Chris and his classmates spent their next semester developing a film that showcased the terrible effects of the hurricane on Louisiana and its residents, but with an underlying message of hope for the community moving forward.

Check out Chris’ full story in the video above.
