Chris James

Level Design / World Building Portfolio


... I am currently doing something different than level / game design by working on a new animated TV series. Throughout my career I've always looked to hone my skills while embracing opportunities to learn new methods to produce high-quality entertainment.

It's been a fantastic experience focusing on storytelling and visual fidelity; creating Cinematic Cameras, Environmental Animations, Mid-Geo Environments, and various VFX's. I have been digging into the technology we are using to explore artistic and technical approaches to building, developing, and organizing our pipelines and virtual spaces.
