Christopher Hatton, Writer-Director-Producer-Episode #237

Mar 14, 2023 | 4 comments

Christopher Hatton is a writer-director-producer based in Singapore.  His work ranges from sci-fi to drama to action to animation. He’s created projects in North America, the U.K., Europe and Asia.

He recently completed writing, directing, and producing Raven’s Hollow, an ambitious period thriller based on events in the life of a young Edgar Allan Poe.   I’ve seen Raven’s Hollow and can tell you it’s a terrifically entertaining, beautifully rendered, quite eerie mystery-horror-thriller.

Some of Christopher’s other credits include Battle of the Damned with Dolph Lundgen, the robots-gone-berserk thriller Robotropolis, Cyber Wars with genre legend David Warner, Phantom Racer, and the first draft screenplay for what would become Shanghai Noon, among many others.

Christopher earned an MFA in Playwriting from the University of Iowa where he took time out from writing plays to submit an unsolicited spec script to Star Trek: The Next Generation, which wound up being produced as a two-part episode.  This was immediately followed by the sale of a pitch to Star Trek, which brought him to Los Angeles where he secured an agent and never wrote a stage play again.

    Steve, your episode #237 with Christopher Hatton was really, really good! I actually went to high school with Chris (dated his best friend for a bit), and let me tell you … Earl Hougham, our English teacher, absolutely adored him. My aspirations were to be a writer, and I went on to get my degree in technical journalism, so I was always watching Chris and what he did. He probably had no clue on that one, lol. This interview was entertaining and full of “things to think on.” Anyway, now that Chris hooked me up with this site, I will browse more of your guest interviews. Thank you!
