Chris Cordova is an outlier. Raised by a young single mom in the working class town of Chino and not having many positive male figures in his life, Chris did everything he could to get out of poverty and make something positive of himself. By the age of 13 Chris taught himself how to edit videos. At the age of 19 he directed a 40-minute short film in Pomona, CA - which involved closing down streets with city permits and casting his actors off Craigslist. At 23 Chris graduated the University of California Riverside and committed himself fulltime to his passion and craft of filmmaking. Chris has held multiple Shooter/Editor positions and created content for various companies and brands ranging from Insomniac Events to Wiz Khalifa, Activision/Blizzard, Toyota, Disney, and many more. Chris has had many videos go viral as well as having his content used for heavy social media campaigns creating millions of video impressions worldwide.
In 2018, Chris incorporated as Chris Cordova Cinema with the goal of creating an authentic and in-tune Media/Entertainment brand. Chris currently does freelance editing -which is his forte - as he secretly works on the sidelines (as always) writing his first feature film. Chris has a vast range of skills, knowledge, connections, insights, and resources that can be brought together and harnessed for any project at any time. Chris looks up to filmmaking pioneers like Walt Disney, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Quinten Tarantino, and Zack Snyder.
