Christopher Van Jura (2005)

Christopher graduated in May 2005
Chris resides in Hoboken with his girlfriend Corinne. He has been freelancing with V&S Talent in Philadelphia where he has been getting the majority of his work for the past 2 years. 

In the beginning of March I booked a commercial for Herr's Potato Chips<> which is airing in the Philadelphia Area. It was a great experience and has already opened up several doors for me. I landed two meetings with NY Agencies, legit agent Meg Pantera and commercial agent Tracey Goldblum at Abrams Artists. We are in the early stages of working together.

I'm still freelancing with my manager in Philly which has been the key to my success over the last 5 years. The independent feature which I co-starred in has begun it's festival run. Sneakers & Soul<> has been accepted to 6 festivals so far this year AND is coming back to Jersey in June for a screening in the New Jersey Film Festival.

Finally, The Fields <>,starring Cloris Leachman and Tara Reid, and was my key to SAG eligibility is in post production and will hopefully be released in 2011.

In March of '10 I filmed a regional commercial for Herrs Potato Chips which will be airing during all Philadelphia Phillies games and at the stadium as well!
