Corey Surratt


Corey Surratt

Cinematographer + Editor


Hailing from the era of VCRs and bad fashion of the 90s, Corey styled his way into the hearts of his audience (his dad, his mom and brother) through visual storytelling. His undying passion for filmmaking inevitably led him to a career in graphic design. Corey later righted his wrongs, and eventually invested in a highly-coveted film degree. While attending UNLV in Vegas, Corey’s gamble in education paid off when he began working with such widely recognized names as National Geographic and Sports Illustrated. Since being back in Illinois, Corey joined the Motion Source team where he has been able to utilize both his graphic design and film experience.
