CHRIS “GONZO” GONZALEZ THE ROAD TO TYPORAPHY


MY S T O R Y

I was a kid the first time I used my parents camera to film a short movie with my sister using Toy Story action figures. Since that moment, I loved filming. I would film fun skits with my friends like fake gameshows, interviews, or even just documenting what we were doing. When I got into 8th grade I started playing sports, and stopped filming. I played football throughout highschool all the way up until college. While I was in college, I got a part time job filming semi pro football games once a week. I knew I wanted to move back to Vegas and go to film school. While I was in film school, I started filming my friends skating. We would film any chance we got. We started a website and started making small montages and posting them to youtube. Eventually we made our first feature length skate film and had a lot of sucsses. After making a few feature skate films, I got an offer to film full time for Zappos.com. I had been filming there for about a year when they asked me to do a typography motion graphic animation. Once I did this, I had a new facination for Motion Graphics. I wanted to learn everything about it. Noticed that you needed to be familiar with Graphic design. Started taking graphic designs classes and took a typography class.
