Cory Reeder is a writer, director, producer and founder of Renaissance Man Productions. Since moving his company to Los Angeles in 2011, he has created music videos for Hayley Kiyoko, Jonathan Davis, Seether, Martin Solveig, Of Mice & Men, Five Finger Death Punch, and more.

 

In between music video productions, Cory is devoted to writing and directing narrative stories. In 2014, while directing the award-winning short film Unlikely Temptations starring Nic Novicki, Reeder was educated on the lack of representation people with disabilities have in media.

 

Since then he has advocated for all forms of inclusion behind and in front of the camera. In 2016, his film Boxed Out won actress Diana Elizabeth Jordan the Best Actor Award from the Easterseals Disability Film Challenge. In 2017, his entry: Best Friend, was nominated in all categories taking home two awards for Best Film and Audience Awareness Award. In 2019 he produced the directing debut for Diana Elizabeth Jordan entitled, I CAN, for which she earned a best director nomination.  

 

Cory has finished writing Best Friend into a feature-length screenplay and is currently developing the true story feature Life Sentence and the sitcom Shenanigans.
