Hernan Corera was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1983, and has spent the last decade cultivating a powerful and unique artistic vision that spans disciplines and creative projects. Since he first hit the scene in 2007, Hernan has amassed an impressive catalogue of high profile work, not only as a director but also as an award-winning photographer and musician.
His film career began as a pioneering music video director in Latin America, earning him his first Latin Grammy nomination for Best Director in 2013. Since then, he has brought his bold and ambitious style to the advertising world, crafting heavyweight commercials and stills for the likes of Bankia, Coca-Cola and Rexona, and scooping himself a win at Cannes. In 2016, he finally took home a Latin Grammy for Best Director for his music video “Gallo Negro” for IKV. He later won two Gardel Awards.
As a photographer, Hernan calls on frequent collaborators, such as Rolling Stone Magazine, to push and cultivate his personal art and fashion projects. Earlier this summer, Vice Studios announced that Hernan will be directing a scripted Spanish series they are developing with Nicolas Giacobone, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of “Birdman,” titled “La Misa del Diablo (The Devil’s Mass).” Based on a book of the same name, the story centers around a cop trying to solve the mysterious murder of an Argentine boy.
