My name is Chris Angelius

I am an award winning Canadian born, Sydney based freelance motion designer and director.

From a young age, I've had an innate passion for all things design, spending countless hours experimenting with different software and techniques. After completing my formal education, I set out on pursuing my dream of becoming a motion designer, working on a variety of projects and honing my skills. This journey helped to focus my vision and evolve my style into what it is now.

Today, I am known for my technical expertise, strong work ethic, and my ability to push the boundaries of the brief. I've worked with some of the biggest brands and agencies in the world, creating visually stunning and highly engaging work that captivates audiences and leaves a lasting impression.

Despite any success or achievements, I aim to always remain humble and to continue to be driven by my passion for 3D motion design. I believes that motion design is an ever-evolving art form and am committed to staying at the forefront of the industry, constantly pushing myself to create new and innovative work. My dedication and passion have allowed me to turn what was once my hobby into a career that I hope to be fortunate enough to continue to do for the rest of my life.

I am proud to be one of the most sought-after motion designers in Australia and am always looking to expand my professional network so that I can continue to grow and progress.

The journey is never over, if anything, it still feels like it's just beginning.
