Film School Shorts

Aldo Mora-Blanco was born in East San Jose and graduated from U.C. Santa Cruz, with a B.A. in Film and Digital Media. Shortly after graduation, he moved to New York City to continue his career as a freelance filmmaker. Luckily, Bay Area filmmaking opportunities presented themselves in 2007, which brought him back to the Best Coast. In 2012, he joined the KQED team and has worked with the Bay Area PBS affiliate ever since by managing the online communities for the national student film showcase Film School Shorts and the Bay Area documentary series Truly CA.

He lives in San Francisco with his wife and two cats. He’s also an avid tabletop gamer and would love to play a hand of Dominion with you.
