Television Reporting

In 2007, during the height of warfighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, Chas exposed a lethal bacteria outbreak in frontline military hospitals — pointing out how the preventable infections — combined with inconsistent use of antibiotics — jeopardized the lives of service members who had survived their combat injuries, and caused some to lose limbs that might otherwise have been saved.

While an executive with the U. S. Naval Institute in 2009, Chas offered the Canadian network CTV this analysis of maritime piracy off the Horn of Africa.

Film & Video Producing

Chas’ culminating production as a film student at USC was a music video shot at Camp Pendleton, California – featuring Marines from the 3rd Air-Naval Gunfire Liaison Company being pulled from a reconnaissance site by a helicopter that pulls them quickly into the air without landing.

On the 40th anniversary of the Marine Corps Reserve’s annual holiday toy collection, Chas – directing comedy legend Bob Hope, produced this history of how the program came to be. The production includes excerpts of Chas’ interview with the program’s founder, retired Marine colonel, and Warner Bros. studio executive, Bill Hendricks.
