Welcome to Justin Chase Canavan's Website
Hello! My name is Justin Chase Canavan! Welcome to my portfolio site. This site is a glimpse of all God is doing in my life and is meant as a connector for the future God has for me. I believe God has called me to be a filmmaker and media expert, and I plan to pursue that call with all that I am, have, and do. Also, this site is meant as a resource-maker for spreading the love of Christ throughout the world through missions fundraiser projects and other media outlets. Praise be to God for all that He has planned for my life and for the lives He will touch through the call God has given me.
Mission to Japan Documentary
During summer 2014, I had the wonderful opportunity to serve with missionaries Chris and Lindsey Carter. During my trip to Japan, I filmed a documentary that is set to release in 2015. In the documentary, I will be exploring the many differences in American culture compared to Japanese culture as well as researching into the reason Japan is often called the “missionary’s graveyard.” From my current understanding, a Christian missionary can go over to Japan for years upon years and only see a few come to Christ. I wish to explore this and look forward to seeing what I find out. Be on the lookout for "Mission to Japan: The Documentary."
I am currently the Director of Photography for an upcoming Indie production called "Downfall." James is a college student who is struggling to pay for his education. When he gets into a scuffle at a local club, he is offered a opportunity to fight in a underground boxing club for money. While rising through the ranks he finds himself falling for a seductive woman before eventually realizing that this new lifestyle is just a facade.
