I wrote, creatively produces, and Production Design a short. Mi Mejor Amigo Jorge is about a little girl named Luna who loses her best friend, Jorge. During Día de Los Muertos, Luna becomes frustrated by why she should commemorate the remembrance of her friend when it's a heavy feeling. Luna falls asleep next to Jorge ofrenda and wakes up inside the box with him, playing together one last time. I was funded by The National Museum Of Mexican Arts to make this script come to life.
