ARTIST STATEMENT

William D. Caballero is a multimedia filmmaker that tells big stories using small figures. His 3D printed macro-protagonists uniquely examine American, Latino, and existential identity, becoming hosts to discussions on issues far larger than they.  This is sometimes accomplished with humor, and other times through somber introspection, allowing each new miniature world to take on new traits across many eclectic genres infilm and video. 

His creative mantra is "empower, enlighten, and express", and it underlies his desire to spread the gift of creativity amongst people of color, liberating them from the oppression of mainstream tastes and values. Caballero's video work champions a new reality, where brown-skinned nerds, black dorks, and LGBT geeks, feel empowered to tell their own stories using their own voice. After all, if we don't tell our own stories, then who will?
