Christopher was discovered when the makers of the Florida Project, Kissimmee came to research to the many families who are forced to live in one of the cheap motels in the shadow of Disney World living, the subject of the film. The boy, his brothers and their mother were one of those families. Two weeks later, got Christopher to his role as the Scooty, the best friend of the main character, Moonee.

The movie from director Sean Baker has since its premiere at the Cannes film festival last may to rave reviews. Willem Dafoe goes on Sunday for an Oscar in the category best male supporting role for his work in the film as motelmanager Bobby.

The scholarship of Christopher is co-funded by the producers of The Florida Project, and the American distributor of the film.
