Hey what’s up! My name is Aaron Castellanos. I’m a senior at Lake Ridge High School. My passion is sharing human stories through all forms of media. My goal is to share these stories as films and photographs. I spend a lot of time working on not only filmmaking but photography as well. In school I'm the sports section leader for yearbook and head of the photojournalism team for Texas Youth and Government. Outside of school I hold a production internship with the MISD Athletic Department and work as a digital worship technician at First Methodist of Mansfield. Along with working on my own short films and larger films within my area. I love storytelling and especially movies and can’t wait to share them with you.
