My Christmas Love became Hallmark's highest-rated film of the year. Fisher began his production career as a production assistant on Martin Scorsese's Cape Fear. He parlayed that amazing experience into directing, writing, and producing gigs on some of the most successful reality T.V. hits of all time. Fisher's first feature film, Killer Movie starred Wesley, Cuoco, and Leighton Meester before the trio became household names on Vampire Diaries, Big Bang Theory, and Gossip Girl. Killer Movie premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, setting the stage for great things to come. Fisher started making 8mm films in middle school and by the time he graduated with a degree in film from Columbia College Chicago, his student films Still a Kiss and Band of Gold won back-to-back 1st place Film Technique awards his senior year. After graduation, Fisher moved to Los Angeles where his music video Dreams I Dream won the grand prize in Billboard's national song contest for video production. From there, while working as a talent agent's assistant at International Creative Management, Fisher made two short films, Garage Sale, a Rom-com starring Claire Forlani & Nestor Carbonell, and Angels, Baby! a musical comedy starring Laura Leighton.
