El Paso producer, filmmaker and sound location mixer Carlos Corral has enjoyed working with Khalid on several documentaries and a television commercial.
He was tapped to work with crews from New York-based Fader magazine, video hosting service VEVO, Apple Music and Uber, which capitalized on the breakneck success of El Paso’s favorite artist by proxy.
Corral, 35, who co-founded MindWarp Films with his brother in 2007, spent a significant amount of time getting to know Khalid, his mother and his friends.
A Cathedral High School and University of Texas at Austin Film School graduate, Corral first worked with Khalid in 2016.
We caught up with Corral – who recently launched the El Paso Film Festival – to discuss what he gleaned from working with the artist and catching a glimpse into the inner workings of the star.
