The Many Lives of Jovan Cornejo
Directed by Ryan Nagata
Kevin Ostrowski is attempting to reconcile with his estranged, underachieving brother Norm on a camping trip. They’re accompanied by several of Norm’s oddball friends, but when one of these friends dies accidentally, the group buries him in the desert with some very unforeseen (and ridiculous) supernatural consequences.
Ryan graduated from USC film school where he made the award-winning short, “Marooned?”. From there he created series for the website “Channel 101” founded by Dan Harmon (Creator of Community) and Rob Schrab. Ryan directed “Acceptable TV” for VH1, executive produced by Harmon and Jack Black, as well as various viral ads. He has also worked in Hollywood as a prop builder and model maker. “The Many Lives of Jovan Cornejo” is his first feature film.
