Christopher Purse

Adjunct Faculty

Chris Purse always wanted to be an engineer when he grew up. As he grew older he realized that being an engineer would have been too boring for his taste. He was destined for a life in VFX and lots of digital explosions.

After graduating from Chapman University, Purse was able to push his skills in computer graphics to new heights. Since 2014 he has worked his way up the ladder in the VFX industry from 3D modeler to Senior Compositor. His journey has led him all over Hollywood from studios such as Ingenuity Studios and FuseFX. He had the opportunity to work on critically acclaimed films such as Get Out and music videos from some of the biggest names in the industry.

In a time where computers are getting faster and smaller, there has never been a more exciting time to work with this cutting edge technology. The software and tools may change every year but Chris enjoys the challenge.
