BELLAIRE, TX - Gilbert Sosa has Hollywood dreams. No, he's not trying to become the next Leonardo DiCaprio, more like the next Alejandro Iñárritu. Yes, Sosa wants to be a film director! The senior at Episcopal High School seems to be on the right track, already having a short film featured at South by Southwest Film Festival earlier this year.
"Ultimately, whether I go into the film industry or not, I still want to end up being an artist or someway behind the camera," Sosa said. "It's something I want to keep moving forward with."
Sosa has started working with local musicians, especially after seeing his first video, "Endeavor" by DoubleDve, have success at South by Southwest and other festivals.
"I can start seeing his style come through," Pejman Milani, Sosa's media arts teacher at Episcopal said. "He's making these beautiful, cinematic pieces, very poetic. He's going to make a name for himself."
Sosa plans to spend his summer after graduation out in Los Angeles, trying to find an internship or a job with production companies there.
