The absurd misadventures of Charles, a friendly kind of guy who meets up with someone whose name completely escapes him.
When Chris was a young boy, his was given a battery of psychological tests to determine what he might be when he grew up. One confusing outcome of this was that Chris was found to have “Mixed Brain Dominance.” When Chris later discovered computers, he found that while he used a tablet with his left hand, he used a mouse with his right. This mixed-up brain behavior has since become a staple of Chris's career path.

Chris continues to be obsessed both with new techniques in CG, and new ways in telling stories with these techniques—as both hemispheres of his brain continue trying to outdo one another. He is an expert in Facial Animation and has developed a course called Making Faces, which he has taught at Dreamworks Animation, Seneca College, the University of Toronto and the Ecole George Melies in Paris.

Landreth's Ryan won best animated short at the 2004 Woodstock FIlm Festival. The film went on the win the 2015 Academy Award for Best Animated Short.
