Chris Moreira first entered the Media Arts realm by taking classes in high school, and achieved success with a P.S.A. campaign for the Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving Organization. He directed the short, and our crew won 1st prize in the 2009 competition open to all Ontario students between ages 16-18. He also won his school’s “Effective Communicator” award; given to a student who displayed prowess communicating a message via a multimedia format.
In university, he attended the first ever class of the Film & Media Production Degree at Humber College, graduating in 2013. Although originally pursuing a career in editing, guidance from his peers developed a leaning towards ambitious storytelling through the film medium. While still an editor at heart, his future plans involve writing for film and television, and directing any story he can.
In 2012, Chris edited the documentary, “Life with Lupus”. This film was a smash hit at many North American film festivals, including 1st place at the “My Hero” festival in California, and being the lone, Canadian finalist in the One Cloud Online Film Festival.
Chris has written, directed, and edited several works in his time pursuing film; most of which are comedic and involve the plight of the little guy. Credits include “The Ticket”, “Buddy”, “Casualties”, and “Leaving a Pretty Corpse”, which was apart of the Official selection of student shorts at the Toronto Youth Shorts Film Festival of 2011. Chris is currently directing the short film “Sweet Something”, which is slated for a Spring of 2013 release.
