About

Founder of Showsotros: Kris Caballero (Me!) Beauty may be in the eyes of the beholder, but its true meaning behind the making of it can only come from the main man himself: Kris Caballero. Having done video production since 2001, started off producing slideshows with background music became the seeds sown for Kris' passion to blossom into a work of uniqueness. Whether the projects are paid gigs or just for fun, Kris injects creative efforts to make his videos/films stand out—that eye-catching moment that grabs your attention before the start. Technologically speaking, he has used nearly every medium to produce his projects, from VHS to VHS-C, right up there with HDV and P2 (tapeless) workflows.

Knowing that editing has gotten him the reputation as "the guy who makes videos," Kris has also ventured into other avenues of production such as audio production, photography, and even computer science (software development). No matter the difficulty in producing, Kris always finds a way, and often does. Having freelance experience since high school, it's impossible to find quality work done diligently and integrating the endless ideas Kris brings onto the table. Better off with quality than quantity, and every project reflects that. Born in Los Angeles, California, nearly wanting to become a professional athlete growing up, Kris hasn't looked back and prefer the strenuous workouts in creating and producing original entertainment for the masses.

In addition to all his uncanny video production skills, Kris has invested time in software development (computer programming), from website building to small video games. Self-taught since 2009, Kris was went on to apply his skills here onto this website along with video/computer gaming development and robotics. Such area has inspired Kris to continue his studies in Mathematics to further strengthen his problem-solving capabilities. From programming languages such as PHP right up there with Python, Kris finds ways to keep busy and to integrate his creativity that'll transform, entertain and perhaps, change the world.
