Mini Biography:

Chad R Homan is a 3rd generation artist, film-maker and educator. His father, Ralph J. Homan, became a renowned artist, as his mother, Sue Vieira majored in education and child development -- he recently retired as Instructor and Chair of the Art Dept. at the College of the Sequoias, while she continues her work with 'Heart - Pro Youth.'

Chad's grandfather, Ralph Christian Homan, ran the Art Dept. at Warner Bros. during the 30's and 40's. His uncle, Mel Homan was a favorite artist and stand-by painter of Spielberg's and Eastwood's.

Chad developed his passions early, constantly supported by his parents and occasionally working with his uncle. Through their encouragement, he pursued and developed many artistic disciplines.

In his early twenties, Chad was accepted into the Actors Workshop at Warner Brothers 'Ranch' and moved south. While there, he was selected to perform limited stunts in Spielberg's '1941'. Watching Mr. Spielberg work, Chad felt that his creative talents would best be served behind the camera.

He continued to study at Tony Barr's Film Actors Workshop for several years after they left the 'Ranch.' He's had a few acting roles here and there to stay 'fresh.' He also kept up college courses and seminars from AFI, Sherwood Oaks Experimental Film College and the UCLA Ext. Program to name a few. At these venues, Chad had the opportunity to learn from notables such as Ralph Levy, Syd Field, Vilmos Zsigmond, James Toback and others.

Chad moved back to Central California in the late eighties to temporarily help with his sister's and brother-in-law's ranch. As though preordained, he met other independent film-makers working in the valley -- one he was fortunate to have studied and collaborated with for several years was Dr. Renee Harmon.

Soon, Chad’s stepfather, pilot Ken Vieira (SAG), entered the industry, with a family business, “Cinema Choppers.” They leased helicopters, flew and performed aerial stunts for "The Puppet Masters," “Under Siege,” “Short Cuts,” “Independence Day,” “Broken Arrow,” “Mars Attacks,” “Mercy Streets,” “Mighty Joe Young,” “America’s Most Wanted,” and others. Here, through his stepfather, Chad garnered more experience and insight with such revered film makers as Robert Altman.

Today, Chad continues to gather gold from gurus like his village's paternal-units as times allow. He believes that furthering education is vital vis-a-vis today's exciting technological advancements. At present, he has studied with Alan Autry, Jim Inch and Charlie Bonner at Autry’s Dirt Road Productions Actors Studio.

Chad feels that culture’s cardinal for sustainable society -- he continues to produce artwork and volunteers his time in this belief. He’s chaired and been a board member of various community organizations -- including two terms as Chair of the Tulare County Board of Mental Health and Chair of the Art Division of the Tulare County Fair. Currently, Chad's Vice President of the Arts Council of Tulare County.

An art column, photos and Prs of his are published in various media outlets including the Gannett News and Information Company -- Visalia Times Delta, Tulare Advance Register -- the Fresno Bee and area TV and radio stations.

Though truest to his passion -- Chad’s an Independent Film Maker and a Producer with SHG Films -- “It's a start-up Production Company filming in the Central Valley. It's where home and family are for most of us -- and with a little luck, film-making too!”
