Chris Pahlow is a Melbourne-based screenwriter, producer, and director. After releasing his first feature Play It Safe in 2015, he worked with Jaime Browne & Clayton Jacobson on the script for Brothers' Nest, which premiered at SXSW in 2018 and was described by RollingStone as the film that “could (and should) be the sleeper hit of the fest”.
As well as developing a number of his own original film and TV projects, Chris is currently writing new projects for Clay, Grant Scicluna (Downriver, 2015), Tristan Barr (Watch the Sunset, 2017), and award winning commercial & music video director Darcy Prendergast.
