Jose C. Reyes Lazo (b. January 31,1984) is a Latino filmmaker and cinematographer, graduating with a Bachelors of the Arts degree from the University of North Texas film program. With a propensity for altruism, Jose has emerged as part of a new generation of filmmakers who posses a passion to make a difference through visual storytelling. Jose grew up in El Salvador in Central America where, amidst poverty and civil war, he acquired a better understanding of issues regarding Latin American countries. He was then able to relate his experiences to the world at large, thus becoming sensitive to the plights of humankind. His passion to capture the struggle of others further increased when he had the opportunity to travel throughout Mexico, Guatemala and his home country. Jose has participated in various productions from TV commercials, music videos, infomercials and short films. In 2010, Jose spent twelve months volunteering at the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, Pennsylvania, capturing seminars and interviews in support of the Institute's many humanitarian projects throughout India, Mexico, and Africa. Reyes has a tremendous zeal to help those in need and hopes to use the medium of film in ways that promote awareness and cultivate change in today's society.
