VIP IGNITE LIVE
On this episode of the VIP Ignite podcast, your host Deneen White is excited to introduce you to actor Christopher Hill. He was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. At the age of 5, he was introduced to the saxophone by a neighborhood friend at which time he became enamored with performing. By the time that he was in high school he was playing professionally in and around the local market with several childhood friends.Upon realizing that the nomadic lifestyle of a starving musician was not what he was willing to take on as a lifestyle, he joined the U.S. Navy with the hopes of making it a career, but he was apparently too strong-minded to comply with centuries-old traditions. During all of his travels and life experiences, Christopher has always felt like a “certain something” was missing...performing! That’s when he decided to investigate the acting business and performing aspect of it. He started doing background work and very early on was told that he should stay in the business and pursue principal work. After 2 years of doing over 45 different shows of background, stand-in, and photo double work he decided that it was time to make that move. After several failed agency relationships he decided to take things in his own hands and started booking starring and co-starring roles in TV and commercials.Christopher's goal is to be in the 5% of working actors that comprise the 160,000 members of the SAG/AFTRA union. He is relentless in the pursuit of his goals. With the help of VIP Ignite, he is absolutely positive that this will happen.
