Born in Farmland, Indiana, USA

Mini Bio (1)

Born and raised in the small town of Farmland, Indiana, Chad is the oldest child of Ed and Nancy Law. His love for film started at a very early age when his father began taking him to genre films such as "Stephen King's Silver Bullet", "The Lost Boys" and "Big Trouble in Little China". After receiving their own video camera for Christmas, Chad and his brother Evan set forth to shoot over 75 homemade movies while growing up, most of which he "starred" in and "directed."

Although he had always loved creating stories it wasn't until he had almost finished college and after he had just seen "the latest vampire movie" that he actually sat down to write his first screenplay ("Night Class") simply because he wanted to try and do better. Although it was never produced and Chad never developed the script further it did trigger him to write more. Chad's next screenplay, a campy horror project entitled "Daylight's End", which he co-wrote with his brother, went on to place fairly high in the Project Greenlight competition just a few short days after a rough draft was completed. His first produced film, the crime-drama "Hero Wanted", with Cuba Gooding, Jr., Ray Liotta, Norman Reedus, Kim Coates, and Jean Smart, went into production in April 2007 for Avi Lerner's Millennium Films. His next, "The List" (aka "The Hit List") with Cole Hauser and Cuba Gooding, Jr., went into production in February 2010 for Sony Pictures' Stage 6 Films.
