I am a Greek filmmaker currently based in London.
My first experience with film and animation was at the age of 6 when I made props for an animated music video my father was directing at the time. Since then, I have worked with him in many tv commercials and short animation films and his work and vision has always been a huge inspiration for me. At the age of 23, I decided to explore different aspects of filmmaking by attending the University of the Arts London and doing a degree in Film and Television.
I'm very passionate about animation and I'm always trying to find new ways in pushing my limits even further by realising ambitious projects.
I've worked for various production companies such as Adjust Your Set, Digital Natives and Sunset+Vine and for clients such as the Olympics, M&S, Accessorize, Talk Talk and Allianz. I've also written many scripts and my films have been awarded in many film festivals in UK and abroad.
Currently, I'm in the pre-production stage of my next short stop motion animation film 'Man Wanted' which is being funded by the Greek Film Centre, produced by Magikon S.A and will be released in July 2017.
