Director Biography - Jorge Arana

At an early age, Jorge Arana developed an interest in filmmaking which was forever burned into his creative DNA and made him always wonder "How do they do it?".

That ignited his interest in filmmaking and production and made him work his way up the ladder. His career started in Mexico, then moved to the USA to explore new opportunities in the English speaking market. His career as a producer sums over 15 years of experience in live TV, integrated productions, and content creation. His creative mind and love of cinematography naturally led him to become a director. And... CUT!

I directed, shoot and edit this tribute short film inspired by a Facebook post from my friend after the death of Muhammad Ali. Her words were so inspirational, the idea came naturally to me. I knew her words needed to not just be read but seen and heard as well. This is her words come to life.
