Staying true to his independent artistry, Chance led the editing process and is also self-distributing the film through his House of Kick's umbrella. The House of Kicks is the film house that has become home to Chance, creating an artistic pod where he is reimagining music, film, and virtual experiences.
In 2020, Chance – who hit #1 on the charts with his song “Holy” with Justin Bieber – adapted to stay-at-home orders and completely pivoted the concert experience. He created 11 unique virtual concerts, with Adweek declaring, “These performances redefine what it means to experience music remotely.” In December 2020, Chance released his critically-acclaimed virtual holiday concert film Chi-Town Christmas on YouTube and 3D on Oculus. An ode to Christmas, Chicago, and the miraculous recovery of Jeremih, Chi-Town Christmas is a beautifully shot concert film written and directed by Chance. The film received a "big thumbs up" from the legendary movie reviewer Richard Roeper for Chance's directorial debut.
