We had the good fortune of connecting with VIctor Moses Navarro and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi VIctor Moses, what’s the end goal, career-wise?
The end goal for me is quite simple, although the road to get there is anything but. I would love to be directing feature films and/or directing cinematic television shows (HBO Max, Netflix, Amazon Prime etc.) I also would love for the production company I Co-Founded, Outer Heaven Creations to be a successful production company that does anything from films (both feature length and short), episodic TV, commercial and music videos. I want to be able have a long and fulfilling career while also having Outer Heaven Creations become a sought after production company creatives want to work with.
What should our readers know about your business?
Outer Heaven Creations is a film production company based out of Pasadena, CA. I am very excited with the future and the progress the company has seen in just the past year. Our philosophy has always been “Quality First”. We never put out a product or video that we weren’t proud of. We also like to say that we become friends with the artists we work with in the end. This business is all about relationships, and if you can’t nurture those relationships, how can you nurture your business?
Starting this company definitely wasn’t easy. Alex and I didn’t have any outside investors to help with the set-up/growing costs. Most everything was out of pocket and a lot of time was spent looking for artists to take a chance on us. Sure enough someone took a chance. And from there, someone saw that video and they took a chance on us. And then someone else saw that video and took a chance on us. So you can see where I am going with this. What took what little profit we made and just re-invested those funds into ourselves and the business. That process just continued as we got more work. Now are clientele has expanded, our team has expanded, and even the products have expanded. We now make original content in the form of a podcast entitled “One For Safety” as well as short films and web content that is currently in development. There is much more work to be done, but we are excited and welcome the challenges that moving forward bring. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
