History

Tequila Mockingbird began two years ago when three film friends and collaborators started work on the short film Azteca Dietica. In 2017 they entered into the Los Angeles 48 Hour Film Project under the team name “Tequila Mockingbird”, which instantly gained the attention of the festival directors. Their resulting short film was Shady Oaks Takedown. It won an audience award and went on to compete in the Los Angeles 48 Hour Film Project’s ‘Best Of’ awards ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre. The three filmmakers had enjoyed working together, and realized they could channel their incredible drive for storytelling in a joint effort. They decided to keep the Tequila Mockingbird name.

Rookie Morgan

Rookie Morgan is a director, producer and editor. He first caught the "film bug" as a 6-year-old child running around with his father’s point-and-shoot camera, while having his little mind molded (and slightly rotted) by the dark humor of cartoons. In association with Inner-City Filmmakers, he made a three minute short film titled Who? in 2011; and in 2014 he was hired by KHTS Radio to create the station’s first video department. Rookie turned back to directing films in 2017, while also producing several new web series for KHTS Radio. Rookie embraces his vulnerable side along with his dark humor to create something truly....weird.
