Jerrod Kingery – Contributing Writer

Jerrod has lived in San Antonio his entire life, and has pretty much been a giant nerd the whole time, give or take a few years when he was either in college or a pre-verbal infant. He fell in love with movies in high school, even writing and directing a few of his own short films along the way. Maybe you’ve seen “Kosmic Kung Fu Warriors.” No? Well, he’s also the co-creator of the Emmy-nominated puppet-based web series “Perspectives,” which a few more people saw. Currently, he serves as the co-host and producer of it’s film review show. Jerrod is a member of the Houston Film Critics Society.




Cody Villafana – Contributing Writer

Born and raised in San Antonio, Cody Villafana’s earliest movie memory was watching “The Jungle Book” every day when he was a child. As the years passed, his passion for film increased and a young film critic was born. Maybe because he wanted to find out why the air conditioner in “The Brave Little Toaster” always scared him as a kid, Cody earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Texas – San Antonio and earned his master’s in counseling. Now, along with being able to dissect a film and write solid reviews, he can tell Kiko and Jerrod what the hell is wrong with them. Cody is a member of the Houston Film Critics Society.
