Job: Motions Designer
Greco-Roman wrestler Chas Betts might not have won any medals in London, but at least he can distract himself from any disappointment with his second career as a freelance motions designer, which involves incorporating graphic design into filmmaking and video production. From an early age Betts, who lives in Colorado Springs, found a way to combine the two very different pursuits. In middle school he used to film himself wrestling, making highlight videos of his performances. By the time he reached college, studying at Northern Michigan University, he balanced majoring in Digital Cinema with competing for the college wrestling team. He remains equally committed to both of his passions.
