Elan has always wanted to do everything -- so she decided to work in media where every project takes you somewhere new.

Jonathan Bogarín Co-Founder + Director
Jonathan is an artist, filmmaker, and educator. Perhaps due to his roots as a Jewish-Venezuelan-New Yorker, his sensibility leans heavily towards the fusion of ideas. He creates socially engaged artworks that combine art and pedagogy, and produces films that blend narrative and documentary filmmaking with visual art. In 2010, Jonathan applied his multi-disciplinary approach to the founding of El Tigre Productions.
