William D. Caballero is a multimedia filmmaker and writer that tells big stories using small figures. His 3D printed macro-protagonists examine American, Latino, gender/sexuality, 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, using the medium of film and video.
His creative mantra is "empower, enlighten, and express", and it underlies his desire to spread the gift of creativity amongst diverse people, liberating them from the oppression of mainstream tastes and values. Caballero's video work champions a new reality, where brown-skinned nerds 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?
