Chad Tingle


Chad is a New Yorker by way of Jamaica. Chad's dual-citizenship and roots in both countries give him a unique perspective on how he approaches filmmaking.

After receiving a B.S. in communications from the University of Miami, Chad started his career as a director on several documentaries that explore social and cultural issues relative to Miami. Issues like race-based gentrification, the African-American custom of women wearing hats to church services on Sundays, and Miami's soul music scene in the sixties.

Chad's films have been invited to screen at SXSW, Aspen Shortsfest, The Miami International Film Festival, Maryland Film Festival, Cleveland Film Festival, and Cinequest.

In 2015, Chad transitioned into commercial directing. His body of work includes spots for Anthem's Simply Healthcare, lifestyle campaigns for Oakley, Resorts World Casinos, and healthcare work for Broward Health.
