The Movies

Along with business partner Neil Kellen, we own Keychain-productions LLC. We have worked on many short films, often producing and directing. Here is a selection.

A WEDDING LIKE THAT :  The story of two young ladies about to be married, and the reactions from their families to this event, will make you laugh, cry and think.

Neil and I picked up BEST DIRECTOR for this film at the Southwest Indiana Film Festival in 2015.


QUIVER Tragic story of a man coping with the loss of his son that we produced and directed (along with writing consultants, cinematography, lighting, casting, editing and other things)

REMAINDERED: A dark comedy we worked on with Lee Goldberg of MONK fame. We handled lighting and location scouting on this one.

A MIND BESIDE ITSELF A torn man’s mind and love. Directed by P.J. Starks. We handled Cinematography, Lighting and Assistant Directing on this one.

ELYSIAN A challenge to create a film with less than six lines of dialog. Neil best defined it as visual poetry. Handled all the major jobs including Producing and Directing.

NIGHTWATCH A music video we did for local musician Mina Fedora. Produced and Directed among other things.

victimEYES My first feature film. Won BEST ORIGINAL STORY in 2010 at the World Independent Film Expo.

DEATH RIDE 69 We helped our friend Derek Mullins, who directed this one.

A GRAIN OF TRUTH An older short film I made in the 90’s before the Keychain days. Small crew and I was learning to produce.

THE MAN OF HER DREAMS Another short film I made in the 90’s before Keychain. So many techniques I gained on this.


The Time Capsule

Peek into my career and see some new and old stuff. Some of the early projects really helped me grow artistically.

BEDREADY: This was created for a company selling Hospital Software.

RIVERPORT:Henderson County Riverport Authority had us create this for them.

The Car

Starsky and Hutch Season One Open from Lew Chan on Vimeo.

This is the Season one open of the TV series, Starsky and Hutch.

The one pictured at the top is mine.

Growing up, I was a huge fan of this show and always wanted “the striped Tomato.” , a 1976 Ford Gran Torino. My car is not one of the original ones Ford produced, due to the popularity of the TV series, but is a replica.

I wrecked it some years back and when it came time to refurb it, I contacted the man who created the “Hero” cars for the movie Starsky and Hutch, so my paint codes match what was on screen, those being Viper Red and Toner for the white. Movie Mike (that’s what he goes by) said the reason he used toner was to make the car pop off the screen.

My stripe has been altered a bit to match the one used on the car in the TV pilot for the series.

I didn’t buy this car as a show car, I bought it to drive and I do that often. It never fails to start conversations and countless are the times I have walked out of a store to find people taking pictures of it.
