Director, Editor, Producer
Brooklyn born, and raised partially (the good part) in the Domincan Republic,
Giovanny Blanco’s career in music and film began at the age of 10 when he made
a super 8 short based on the 1980 film “The Idolmaker”. He was soon creating his
own stories and shooting them using anything he could get his hands on, including
super 8 cameras, security cameras, and Fisher Price’s Pixelvision toy camera.
He went on to study Music Theory and Engineering, as well as Film Production at
The New School in New York City, before heading west to California. Upon his
arrival in Los Angeles, he discovered a burgeoning Latin Rock scene, and immediately
joined a band that would eventually become the Latin Ska-Punk flavored Viva Malpache.

After the release of their first CD, Giovanny started working behind the_scenes on
film and television projects, a path that eventually led to acting, as well as to
writing and directing TV and music videos. He also found time to start another
musical project, SHU-SHO, an electronic funk and latin-flavored group.

It was while directing a music video for SHU-SHO that he stumbled upon the
inspiration for what would be his first feature film “CORNELIUS”. The experience
of making that film and it’s festival run cemented Giovanny’s decision to continue
making movies. Movies that reflect personal stories he didn’t see anywhere else.
