Artist Biography: Christopher Guerrero
I was born in Fresno, CA and raised in Selma, CA "raisin capitol of the world". After leaving I went to UC Santa Cruz and received a degree in Film and Digital Media. I worked as staff member for the UCSC Film and Digital Media Department as a Digital Media Specialist. I am the director of "The Hipster Games" and creator of "Bill Murray Appreciation Day". I was lucky enough to follow my dream and study MFA film production at the University of Southern California, where I am gearing up to shoot my thesis film "Mike Garcia and The Cruz"!

About The Video: Check out the Kickstarter for "Mike Garcia and The Cruz"! A USC comedy-thriller-noir, 16 minute, short thesis film from director Christopher Guerrero. currently trying to raise 18 thousand dollars on Kickstarter. Inspired by such films as Alex Cox's Repo Man, James Merendino SLC Punk and the Coen Brothers' classic The Big Lebowski, "Mike Garcia and The Cruz" is a wild ride through a crazy world of College Chancellors, Anarchists, Punk Rockers, Goths, Hipsters and Derby Girls set against the enigmatic Santa Cruz, California (of Lost Boys fame).
Mike Garcia and The Cruz, is a comedy about Mike a Santa Cruz punk rocker and university computer technician, who inadvertently lets the Chancellor's laptop get stolen by a crew of bureaucratic anarchists. Mike must find and return the laptop before the Chancellor kicks him out of school. Helped only by Vanessa, a "tough as nails" roller derby girl; Susan, his gothic gamer roommate; and Ryan, an overweight hipster ecstasy dealer. Mike quickly finds himself in over his head, finding the true meaning of "Keep Santa Cruz Weird".
From Director Christopher Guerrero:
This film is a passion project, which evolved from a story I wrote over 7 years ago while attending the University of California, Santa Cruz. It is heavily influenced by Punk music, film noir, 80's punk movies like Repo Man, Coen Brothers' comedies like The Big Lebowski and 1999 indie classic SLC Punk. It is a re-imagining of the typical college film, looking at subcultures not well examined in popular culture: punks, goths, anarchists, and the LGBTQ community. The movie can be explained simply as a love letter to Santa Cruz.
