Mexican born filmmaker residing in L.A. Throughout his college years, Jorge kept a journal where he would write ideas, ideas that would soon develop into short stories. As a result, Jorge has written and directed several short-films.
Jorge's initial intention was to become an actor. At the beginning of his career, he had decided to write for himself. When the time came to perform the lead on his first short film Brian's Birthday (2013), Jorge found an enormous amount of interest in the development process; so much, that it led him to step down and instead concentrate in directing the short-film. This could be noted as a landmark point in Jorge's career as he took time, to perfect his writing and directing craft. In 2014, Jorge launched Mighty Aphrodite Pictures, a production and finance company that would go on to concentrate in the creation of strong, diverse and independent stories with female protagonists.
Although Jorge did not attend film school, his writing and directing method have been critically acclaimed by many in the industry. His thematic is constantly very dark and dramatic. Some of his favorite filmmakers that have served as an inspiration to Jorge's work include Woody Allen, David Fincher, Darren Aronofsky and David O. Russell.
Some of Jorge's credits include his latest short-film "MASTERMIND" that won Best Actress and was nominated for Best Writing, Best short-film and Best Director at the 2016 CFC Film Festival. His short-film "BRIAN'S BIRTHDAY" went on to play at twenty-three festivals. His highly anticipated feature film BLUE LINE STATION is expected to hit the 2017 festival circuit, all while Jorge prepares to start filming his second feature film "21st CENTURY AMERICA" starring Summera Howell, Leo Ramsey and Paul Pratt. Principal photography began March 7, 2017.
