My name is Kevin Padilla. I was born in Manhattan, New York, but was raised in Marion, North Carolina. I’m currently a senior at UNCG, majoring in Media Studies. My passion for film and storytelling is what motivated me to pursue a career in filmmaking. Having grown up in a small town without much exposure to the arts, I’m empathetic to the idea of outreach and spotlighting otherwise scarcely established businesses and services. My goal is to look beyond the surface of a company or product and forge a compelling story that helps them invent a powerful image for a broader audience. After college, I hope to continue my pursuit of storytelling in the film and media industry.
