Born and raised in North Denver, Colorado, USA - Richard Corso became interested in cinema at a very young age and making movies with his siblings, and influenced from filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, The Coen Brothers, and Paul Thomas Anderson. Corso’s first breakout into the Denver scene was FISH - a “cynical and existential neo-noir about two gangsters and one night on the job” (Westword Denver). Winner of Best Film at the Frostbite Film Festival and Best Director & Best Picture at Intendence Film Festival. The following year, he followed up it up with the Americana Dark Comedy, THE SALESMAN, winner of the Best Short at New York Film Awards and Nominated for Best Film by The Colorado Film Association. The Salesman dove into the surreal and lonely way of life of a traveling salesman. “What Corso is able to do with its subtle and bleak view of American masculinity is nothing short of a surreal nightmare.” (Birdy Magazine) Today, Richard Corso is continuing to make more work, collaborating with his “Roostercat Crew”, who consist of award-winning playwright Rebecca Gorman O’Neill, Producer Colin Floom, Actor Cody Dermon, and fellow award-winning director Rob Shearer; his current project being THREE, TO CAIRO which can be described as the epilogue to a Hollywood epic, an absurdist exploration of communication about three travelers and their treasure packed camel and dives into the intricacies of that basic human need: connection.
