Fred Chapman has a passion for creativity and for empowering creative people.
For over 17 years Fred has worked internationally as an animation and visual effects artist and supervisor. He helped bring to life many creatures and characters that would today be recognizable by many millions around the world. From the Harry Potter franchise to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles he has contributed significantly to over 30 Hollywood movies.
Fred’s passion for movement is more than just theoretical. In addition to his degree in marine biology and career in the vfx and animation industry, he has spent much of his life around athletes from a variety of disciplines. He once spent several months pushing his body to the limits of its flexibility while studying with a 90 year-old yoga guru in India. He has also completed 2 Ironman triathlons, swam 10km across English Bay in Vancouver and has raced in triathlon age-group World Championships on both the British and Canadian teams.
He also enjoys beer, wine, chips and chocolate, not necessarily in that order.
