Sam Gorski and Niko Pueringer
Piloted by Creative Directors and Founders Sam Gorski and Niko Pueringer and Producer Jake Watson, Corridor Digital creates action-packed, VFX-infused, reference-laden shorts that trade on an encyclopedic knowledge of video games, action movies, viral trends, and filmmaking tropes to create highly entertaining short pieces with budgets anywhere from $0 to high six figures. While currently working to release regular content onto their YouTube channel and developing a handful of long-form narrative projects (from feature films, to television, to web series), in the next year they hope to finish and distribute one or more of their feature projects. No matter how much the group grows however, they plan to always maintain a strong presence online- a space they admire as a free medium for creative satisfaction and experimentation, unprecedented in history in its lack of financial and political barriers to entry. Equally inspired by John Woo and THE MATRIX films as they are by fellow online creators like Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatsch, Wong Fu, Smosh, Clinton Jones, Corridor Digital’s body of work demonstrates that DIY online work doesn’t have to look cheap, and its effects-driven, referential world is a perfect evocation of our digital, plugged in, interactive moment.
