Former Chiefs wide receiver Chris Conley released a new short film, ‘Quarantime.’
As players around the National Football League find themselves in the same situation as the rest of us, with vacation plans grounded and more time at home on their hands, some of them are finding creative ways to use their time and energy. For former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Chris Conley, the COVID-19 global pandemic has given him time in quarantine to further hone his skills as a filmmaker.
Conley officially released a new short film on Thursday, titled Quarantime, about a newlywed couple stuck at home. It’s entertaining, heartwarming, and entirely relatable, and it’s definitely worth a watch, especially given that it won’t take you long at all to screen it below.
When Conley first joined the Chiefs, he came to the team as not only an incredibly athletic wide receiver out of Georgia, but he was also an interesting personality off the field who was in love with film as much as football. The year before he was drafted, Conley, a confessed super-fan of the Star Wars franchise, had created Retribution: A Star Wars Fan Film while he was a student. The end result was a surprisingly good 26-minute long tribute to the beloved series.
In 2015, Conley followed up with his next film, at least ones on his own account, with Fira’s Game: Part One, a short action film with an interesting twist at the end.
Conley played four full seasons for the Chiefs before signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars a year ago in free agency. With Jacksonville, he was able to take on a much larger role in the offense and responded with career-high totals in several categories including targets (90), catches (47), receiving yards (775) and touchdowns (tied with 5).
