Director Biography – Sharon Strange
(Formally known as Crystal Correa )
Founder and Award-winning Filmmaker + Actor + Artist
Born in Seoul, South Korea and growing up in a very portable military Puerto Rican family, pushed Sharon to be inspired by the world around her and especially Saturday morning cartoons. From a very young age of five, Sharon started to have an interest in all artistic mediums.
Moving around gave Sharon a lot of time to work on her craft and grow as an artist while being the “new kid.” She was never lonely. Her inspirations have always come from a bit of both real life and her colorful imagination. As a fan of surreal and abstract styles it’s easy to see those influences in her work.
After college, Sharon decided to focus on a more digital based medium and film in order to express herself. She’s still designing her art in a sketchbook so she can stay connected to her roots, when all she had was pencil and paper to express herself.
Sharon is now currently working on a dark comedic digital series about a part-time exorcist (✨light-worker✨) and full-time cartoonist named Crystal with the help of her best friend Simon, a full-time entity, they work together to save humanity, barely. “CRYSTAL THE CREEP: CHRONICLES OF A CREEP”, was inspired by Strange’s short dark comedy/horror screenplay “Simon and I”. Recently “CREEP” was rewarded “Best Animation” by “Phoenix Shorts” March 2021.
As of August 2021 Crystal Correa decided to rebrand herself professionally as Sharon Strange.
