Chris began dabbling with animation in 1993 as part of the commercial arts course that he was taking at that time. Becoming fascinated with the animator’s craft, he began attending workshops held by the Manitoba Society of Independent Animators (MSIA). Chris received funding from MSIA in the form of space and equipment usage and set up shop in MSIA’s studios working on his first film the Urge when time permitted. the Urge was completed in the spring of 2001. After several years of production, Chris completed the Urge 2 - It Lies Within. During this time, Chris taught an animation course at the Winnipeg Art Gallery - Studio Programs, worked on several small animated commercials, and began working on a screenplay for a feature film. the Urge 2 - It Lies Within has won over 15 awards at international film festivals to date, including best film, best filmmaker, and best animator. Then Chris completed his next film, Futureworld. It has won over 13 awards in “Best of” categories, as well as various other awards. Chris’ most recent film, Hinter-Land is now beginning its film festival run. He is in the storyboard stages of his next film.
