Pratt Institute | 550 Myrtle Avenue
Location: Katharine L. McKenna Screening Room (102), Film/Video Building, 550 Myrtle Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
Multimedia filmmaker and Pratt Alumnus, William D. Caballero, will join the Departments of Digital Arts and Film/Video to discuss his creative process and unique approach to filmmaking. Caballero’s directorial work can be seen on HBO, Univision, and PBS, and has been screened at over 75 film festivals, including Sundance and Slamdance. Excelling in the art of telling “big stories using small figures,” his recent accomplishments include a host of short films and several web-series featuring 3D miniature printed protagonists. An eclectic artist, capable in working in diverse media, Caballero has devoted himself to creating compelling art that empowers, enlightens, and expresses his creativity, culture, and curiosity. In 2015, he developed a web-series entitled Gran’pa Knows Best, featuring 3D printed miniatures of his Puerto Rican grandfather, offering quirky advice to millennial viewers. The series was quickly licensed by HBO for two seasons, and debuted in September 2015. Caballero’s latest short film, Victor and Isolina, will debut at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
Co-presented by the Department of Digital Arts and the Department of Film/Video.
