Wisconsin-born and bred, award-winning filmmaker Chris Burgard, made his 1986 Hollywood debut as Matthew Broderick’s dance double in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” He quickly landed a recurring guest role on the popular 90’s sitcom, “Growing Pains” and appeared in numerous television and movie roles over the next several decades.
Chris directed, produced and starred in the pop-cult classic horror film, “The Ruining,” which was featured in Park City’s 2004 Troma Film Festival and later that spring at The Cannes Film Festival Film Mart. His 2007 award-winning documentary, “Border,” screened twice for Congress, helped stop 2007 Amnesty Legislation and won a myriad of awards.
In 2009 Burgard made the dangerous documentary “Honduras On The Brink”. This was the film that gave the world an inside view into the attempted Color Revolution in Honduras.Recruited by 2012 Presidential Candidate Herman Cain, Burgard served as Chief Creative Media Strategist.
He earned the coveted attention of Stephen Colbert who attributed Burgard with adding a new political avant-garde genre to the otherwise boring 2012 political ad campaigns. He created a series of viral videos including “The Smoking Man,” “Sick of Stimulus,” ” Electile Dysfunction,” Paul Nehlen’s Motorcycle Ad, Fight Club Pac’s “No Fear” and an Anti-Hillary Veteran Ad.
In his four years with Breitbart Media his videos received 1/3 of a billion views. He has also received millions of views with his appearances for The Daily Caller and Numbers USA. Burgard hails as one of the most dangerous media guys on the planet. Just ask Herman Cain.
