My name is Alejandro Hernandez. I’m a director and video editor based in NYC. I was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela. I knew I wanted to make movies since I was 10 years old and had a camera in my hands for the first time. After graduating from film school and getting my Bachelor of Arts degree at La Universidad del Zulia in my home country, I went to New York City to work on several projects as a shooter and editor. My comedy work, The Alejandro Hernandez Show, which focused on monologues and sketches about Hispanic culture and social media behavior, has garnered more than 14 million views on YouTube. And a following of over 700,000 on social media. The show started in 2009 when I was only 19 years old and ended in 2013. My films have won awards and have been screened all over the world. Alt, a Sci-Fi short film, was released in more than 100 mainstream theaters in Venezuela as part of the previews. It was shown at film festivals in countries such as the US, Argentina and Chile. Another short, Why We Feel Alone was hand-picked by the Vimeo staff and featured on their Discover page. It reached over 50,000 views in its first week. Another viral video, PANDEMIC, garnered more than 200,000 views on Twitter/Vimeo and showed interest from HBO producers as well as TV networks. I’ve worked with brands in Latin America such as Frito-Lay and Pepsi as influencer and content creator. I also worked as an editor for personalities and media companies in the US such as actor George Takei, Univision, Condé Nast and CBS. I’m currently living in Brooklyn. My hobbies include watching films, TV shows. I’m obsessed with them and can binge an entire season in a weekend. I also love writing (I have a blog here) playing volleyball, dancing, karaoke and exploring neighborhoods in NYC.
