Director Biography - Jorge Alvarez

“We don’t make movies to make more money. We make money to make more movies.” Words that Jorge Alvarez lives by, since he fell in love with films as a nine-year-old child. When he went to see the James Cameron directed epic Titanic with his mother and older sister. Brought to tears in the theater by Cameron’s master stroke and James Horner beautiful score. Jorge realizes that films can and are works of art.

Born in Brooklyn, New York to two immigrant parents of Latino dissent. Jorge spent most of his childhood in front of his family’s living room tv watching movies, cartoons and Japanese anime which is a big influence on his work today. As the years went by, Jorge love of anime grew as he begun to make anime music videos on his old Dell home computer. That put him on the path to become a filmmaker but what really put it in his mind was watching The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the king in a dark movie theater as he whispered to himself “This is what I want to do with my life”.

Jorge was accepted into several film schools but realize him and his family could not afford to send him. That did not stop him from chasing his passion, so he decided to form his own production company Filmcloudstudio with his childhood friends Tony Malik and David Thenor. With little experience and little to no budgets, their first few films were a great lesson in filmmaking.

Now with over eight years of filmmaking under his belt and bringing in some great talented people into Filmcloudstudio like Anthony Paulino. who was the cinematographer on Jorge’s directed short film Stolen Innocence. The film was to be screened at the 2019 International New York Film Festival. They worked together again in writing Filmcloudsudio’s next film Red Rose, directed by Jorge Alvarez which was selected by the 2020 Dumbo Film Festival.

The excitement and passion for films Jorge felt in that movie theater in 1997 are still there and even greater now as he continues making films and telling story’s as a writer, director and producer.

Director Statement

When I sat down to write my next film, I wanted to come up with an action thriller film without the same tired tropes we've seen so many times before, and turn the genre on its head. Growing up a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino's directing and storytelling, I wanted to tell a story in the same realm.

A female lead action thriller, where she's not the victim but the predator. Like Tarantino's KILL BILL films. So I sat down with my co-writer Anthony Paulino and we came up with this film/series. Where the most dangerous person in the room is the one you least expect. Like a John Wick meets Charlie's Angels.

Growing up a film lover, I've always seen the protagonist of action films look a certain way. And I wanted to break the norm and have other groups of people to see someone who looks like themselves in that role. This is the first installment of a larger world and I'm looking forward to sharing it with the world. Because a Rose isn't the only flower in the garden.
