Director Biography - Brandon Delgado

1st generation immigrant to parents from a remote village in the Mexican plains. Brandon Delgado has had a fascination for storytelling through film since he first watched, "Her", after his first heartbreak at the age of 14! Such a well-timed, moving experience inspired him to write his first ever script, "Retrogress" at a whopping 73 pages!
Brandon Delgado is never afraid to take risks. During the 2019 COVID stock market boom, he made high risk, high reward investments which ultimately paid off, but it doesn't end there.
Using more than half the money he made, Brandon Delgado proceeded to produce his first ever movie, "The Lottery", on his own, in the summer of 2020. A learning experience, to say the least.
Since then, something awakened in him, and he has been on a nonstop, almost workaholic grind, creating 4 films in 7 months, and now aspiring to help the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex become a hub for the cinema scene! And what batter first step to take than creating his very own company to do just that!

Director Statement

I wrote "Generation Sparrow Action" as a critique on the activism I see today. Far too often is their blatant corruption thrown in our face, almost as if teasing us, and far too often do people simply take it. It made me question what it would truly take to push someone into taking action themselves. This is what Edwin represents, he who was pushed.

He rose to a pedigree only few live in, but many dream of. Then, he discovers those living in it don't have anybody but their own interests in mind when it comes to changing the world. Now, he is soon to be sent back to square one, to the poverty stricken life he worked so hard to escape from. This, is him being pushed to the edge.
