Christopher James Lopez
Christopher James Lopez was born and raised in the Dominican Republic. He began his study of the arts in middle school. He went on to study architecture at the High School of Art and Design. His study of architecture progressed to the New York Institute of Technology. Two years into the program he realized that sitting in front of a computer was not for him, that the design and freedom he was accustomed to was lost to technological trends. Upon speaking to an English professor, he changed his major from Architecture to English. The professor, a retired actress, acquainted him with the business of acting, while the English major workload afforded him the opportunity to take acting classes at various acting studios in New York City whose credit conveniently went towards attaining a Bachelor of Arts in English. Upon graduating college, Christopher began to work full time as an actor. After being dissatisfied at the kinds of roles he was auditioning for Christopher decided to write and direct his first short "The Cure". That film became the cornerstone of what Christopher now calls "Densely Hollow Films" named after his second short film, the 40-minute long, "Densely Hollow." Densely Hollow Films' objective is to create films that are experimental, artistic, but above all narrative. The team at DHF is now working on their most ambitious project to date, the English/French language feature film "The Final Act."
