My name is Apostolis and I am an award-winning filmmaker & animator based in Greece.
Taking my first steps in the world of sketching and comics, I have gained a lot of experience over the years on how to attribute the still image properly. But my interest was drawn to animation, where a fascinating world of creativity and aesthetics unfolded.
My first completed animation attempt was awarded by Olympia International Film Festival in 2004 as the best animated short film. In 2009 I was also nominated for Digital Alexander and awarded the 2nd DigidalWave prize in Thessaloniki International Film Festival for my short film “The Box”. But the trophies are not the goal and the journey of learning new techniques and constantly evolving is much more exciting. So after I graduate from my animation school in 2010 I worked professionally in many projects with such success, which made me a more experienced and efficient creator.
To this day, my passion for the moving picture, through a combination of filmmaking techniques and computer graphics, is something that undoubtedly characterizes me in quality, elegance and aesthetic, capturing the truly unique in it.
