Monsignor Kelly Catholic High School has named Chris Moujaes, entertainment executive, producer and author, as the 2018 Graduation Commencement speaker. Moujaes, a MKCHS graduate of the class of 1998, will speak to the graduating seniors on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at the Beaumont Civic Center at 4 p.m.
Moujaes has been creating fantastic, imaginary worlds since he was six years old. Though he probably spent a little too much time drawing in the margins of his homework, all that daydreaming led to an accomplished career as a motion picture executive, producer, character designer and novelist.
Over the past decade, Moujaes’s work has been focused as a busy studio executive – developing, producing and distributing animated motion pictures, live action films and music for the international marketplace.
In 2015, Moujaes became CEO of Herohelix, a studio that produces and distributes original entertainment content worldwide. At Herohelix, he launched the FLUX DESTINY franchise for teens and young adults that has grown into a celebrated universe of books, graphic novels, web comics and merchandise. His first novel, FLUX DESTINY: Fortuna’s Rings, released in 2017 to critical acclaim from fans and industry insiders alike and is spawning a series of ongoing fantasy novels.
From 2009 to 2015, he was the Head of the Original Entertainment for Funimation, a division of Sony Pictures Television, where he oversaw the studio’s various film release labels. Over his many years with Funimation, Moujaes managed millions of dollars in motion picture production, directed the creative development of dozens of films and served as Executive Producer of eight original movies. Moujaes’s film credits include: Executive Producer of MASS EFFECT: Paragon Lost, DRAGON AGE: Dawn of the Seeker, BULLET and LEFT BEHIND: Vanished. Previously, he served as President of Boomstar, Inc., an international animation service company specializing in video games and television, and Spoondbend, Inc., a branding agency.
Moujaes is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and holds a Bachelor of Science in Radio-Television-Film. He resides in Dallas and has two children.
