DIRECTOR: Mike Corey


Mike Corey fell in love with filmmaking at a young age, when he experienced classics such as “Star Wars,” “Indiana Jones,” and “E.T.” Majoring in Telecommunications and minoring in film at the University of Florida only added to Mike’s love of the art. Unfortunately, real life got in the way and with bills to pay, he made his professional career in live television production.


After becoming a member of the Directors Guild of America, Mike’s television career led him to directing for PBS, AMC, Discovery, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook and pilots for NBC, E! and Sony. But the passion for film remained. With his supportive wife and numerous credit cards, Mike decided to forgo film school to write and direct his feature-length debut, “Monotony.” Looking back, Mike feels that the learning experience was much better than the final product. Which was actually the point.


Switching to short films allowed Mike to experiment. With live action he tried everything - from comedy to drama to the supernatural. While his films did well on the festival circuit, playing around the world and winning multiple awards, Mike couldn’t quite find his voice. Frustrated with micro budgets and live-action production difficulties, Mike decided to focus his talents on animation. With a free program and a lot of hard work, he created the character of Peekaboo Petey, star of multiple short films that delighted his nieces, great-nieces and -nephew, and other young fans. He then went on to develop, write, shoot and edit an animated/live-action short starring his nieces as X-Wing Pilots who destroy a new variety of Death Star. But the slow pace of animation and a growing ultra-conservative movement in the U.S. spurred Mike to simultaneously produce shorts for Instagram promoting human rights.


The collision of these two worlds was the catalyst for Mike: he would combine his personal activism with his art. In January of 2022, with the threat of overturning Roe v. Wade looming, Mike started work on a project that would personalize the traumatic impact the loss of healthcare for women poses. The result is the animated short film “Welcome to Texas”.
