In 2003 Chad moved back to Los Angeles and started to focus and a dream he had harboured for a long time – an own production company. While in New York, he and fellow actor Robert Gant had come across a play called Save Me. They read it for a theatre benefit, and fell in love with the story of a gay and lesbian rehab center in Texas, where men and women go to become straight. Chad contacted producer Chris Racster and together with Robert Gant they formed the production company Mythgarden. On explaining the vision behind Mythgarden, Chad said, ”Our company is entirely dedicated to turning the page on gay and lesbian storytelling in film, television, and theatre. We believe that it's time that our stories can be told fully: good relationships, real relationships, honest characters, in all of the genres of storytelling-fantasy, fiction, fairy tales, great mysteries, adventure films, and honest drama.”
In addition to starting a production company, Chad kept busy on the acting scene. He starred in Paris, a gritty modern noir, about a doomed love story of two people from very different worlds. The film premiered in New York on the Tribecca Film Festival.

In 2004/2005 Chad continues to focus on his acting, and landed two very important roles in his career. One dual part in the highly anticipated film End of the Spear, which brought Chad on location all the way to South America, to film one of the greatest stories of forgiveness. The story was born from the death of five missionaries, led by Jim Elliot and Nate Saint. In January 2006, 50 years after the spearing, the feature length movie will release in theaters nationwide.

The other part was as Donald Strachey, in Third Man Out. Here TV a gay and lesbian television network approached Chad with the detective story written by Richard Stevenson, and Chad signed on to do 6 movies in the Donald Strachey Mystery Series.

My life experience has become so great, and I think that really fuels the acting," says Allen. "You know, I've been working on my craft since I was five years-old, and now that I'm another 10 years into it, I have the experience of being open, and I can truly put all my experience into a character without any hesitation or supplementation - ˜Third Man' is perhaps one of the most honest portrayals I've ever been able to give as an actor. Stage experience has been right up there, but creating Donald Strachey was just oozing out of me."

In addition to these important roles, Chad has managed to squeeze in some interesting guest parts on television as well. In 2004 he stepped back on the set of NYPD Blue for a second time, and delivered a powerful performance of a robber who picks up gay men, and ends up murdering one of his victims. Another interesting role came in 2005 where he guest starred in the CBS series Cold Case. The episode entitled “Kensington” evolves around a small town, and the murder of a young mill worker.
