Finalist Judge

Christopher Bahry


In 2010, Chris and his longtime collaborator Alexandre Torres met EP Kate Bate and founded Tendril. With roots in Brazil and Canada, Tendril is a design-driven animation, vfx, and digital innovation studio, creating beautiful and thoughtful visuals across many mediums. With roots in Brazil and Canada, they are a diverse group of directors, designers, artists and producers that come together to push the boundaries of the visual storytelling experience, employing an always evolving fusion of technology and craft.

The diversity of cultural influences and myriad of creative voices is their binding agent. Their vision is to rediscover the everyday through the filter of their imaginations. To inspire and be inspired. In his free time, Chris explores deserts, chases bugs around with macro lenses and fabricates 3D printed fractals.
