What’s Next?

Directed by Aaron Madrigal

With graduation on the horizon, three college students feel overwhelmed by their uncertainties about the future. As they study for finals late at night, strange things unfold and encounter what seems to be an “UFO” abduction. They are left to confront this force of the unknown.



Film Director | Engineer | Video Editor | Producer

Hi! My name is Aaron, I’m 22 years old, and I’m Filipino-American filmmaker from Menifee California. It all started when I was 12 years old and created my own YouTube gaming channel. I taught myself how to edit videos, create content, and how to use a camera. That eventually sparked my love for filmmaking at age 15, especially video editing and directing.

I’ve had the incredible opportunity to gain skills in video production. I worked in my university’s production company for 3 years and I currently enjoy making creative and narrative-driven short films on YouTube.

I also have a degree in computer engineering to combine my interest into the future technology and film. I currently work as a engineer in the tech/entertainment industry and a personal filmmaker/video editor.

I truly believe in the power of storytelling and I hope to inspire other people and creatives.
