Why hello there!
My name’s Kat Lazo and I’m a native New Yorker with a passion for visual storytelling. Currently I’m a Video Producer for the unapologetically Latino platform We Are Mitu. You can find me working behind and in front of the camera. And from time to time you can find me speaking at universities on a variety of topics such as feminism, media representation of POC, being a Latina video producer etc. But no matter what hat I’m wearing, I’m always on a mission to empower others to challenge the media and question norms.
I Make Videos
In my 7 years of digital video production, my work has been featured by Buzzfeed, Upworthy, Daily News and HuffPost Women to name a few. I’m currently a Video Producer for the unapologetically Latinx platform We Are Mitú where I’ve created The Kat Call series. As a visual storyteller, I always aim to amplify the work and voices of marginalized people typically with a strong concentration on race and gender. We can’t wait for our stories to be told, we have to tell them ourselves.
