The Works of Raúl Alejandro Mendoza
I have been directing films since 2016 with my debut short film Immortal, continuing on I would make my short documentary called Bloodline in 2018 to examine my family’s immigrant past in the US. In 2019, I worked on a short called, Beyond The River that looks at the relationship between two Latinx folk in the wake of political turmoil. Recently, I have started production on my upcoming LGBTQ+ drama, Before I Leave (2021).
On the other hand, I also experiment with photography, both digitally and on film. This has helped me in shaping my skills when shooting my films but also allowing me to tackle a different creative medium.
Over 2 years ago I created a podcast network called The Nerd Corps where I discuss various aspects of entertainment. Throughout this journey I have interviewed various names such as writer Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class, Thor, and Rim of the World), comic book writer Ashley Victoria Robinson (Jupiter Jet and Aurora and the Eagle), and author/comic book writer Jason Inman (Jupiter Jet and Super Soldiers).
