About the person, in first person
I'm Jorge Corona, and my pronouns are he/him/his. You can probably guess by now that I'm a filmmaker, writer, illustrator, animator and photographer, I specialize in making comedy, documentary, and entertainment video and audio content for the world's leading publications, the world's up-and-coming productions, and the world's New York University.
I've worked with The X Factor, The Daily Texan, the Austin NPR affiliate KUT/KUTX, Texas Performing Arts, VICE Media Inc, Anonymous Content, The Huffington Post, Fusion, New York Magazine, The Verge, Lifehacker, Deadspin, Gizmodo, Jezebel, Kotaku, Make the Road NY, and NYU.
My work has also been featured on Buzzfeed, The Dallas Morning News, Aol's video network, The Fusion Feed (TV), and the Dallas Observer. Someone from storied French publishing house Éditions Nathan reached out to me about putting a video of mine into their textbook teaching French children colloquial English, so you can also find my work in French high schools. If you attempt to verify this, though, please check in with the front office first.
Films I've worked on have premiered at SXSW, and some are available on Amazon. I've also done work on music videos for indie artists like Tei Shi and Wynter Gordon, and on various commercials including one for the great folks at the United States Postal Service.
My work has been recognized with top honors by the Associated College Press, by the late media columnist David Carr of the New York Times, by the North American Digital Media Awards, and by my mom which is still nice.
I speak, read and write English, Spanish and French. I'm also highly familiar with Mexican culture, since I was born in the country of Mexico.
I've taught and mentored young storytellers through Fusion's Rise Up, Be Heard program and through the Writer's Guild Initiative.
I am available for freelance work.
