Jeremy Paredes is a name to remember. His talent for visual storytelling exceeds standard video production and is being noticed by established organizations across all industries. As a Freshman at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Jeremy is the first student ever to receive a full-ride athletic scholarship because of his creative talents. In receiving such an esteemed honor, Jeremy works with the Yellow Jacket’s Creative Media Team to capture photos and videos for the Football team and other Georgia Tech sports.
Recently, Jeremy had the opportunity of a lifetime to cover the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. Working for 12 hours a day for three weeks straight, Jeremy dove into Olympic culture. As a former athlete and lover of sports, Jeremy says this was a dream come true to work at the most prestigious sporting event.
This opportunity would not have been possible without the assistance of one of Jeremy’s greatest role models and inspirations, his Aunt Michelle Tesoro.
Michelle is a motion picture editor and previously worked on the popular Netflix series, “The Queen’s Gambit.” She connected Jeremy with a freelance editor for NBC Sports. The editor thought highly of Jeremy’s work and recommended he apply to be a Digital Production Assistant for NBC Sports. After rounds of interviews, he was offered the position.
These positions and opportunities are a direct result of Jeremy’s passion for capturing stories. Jeremy’s journey in the media field began when he played soccer in 8th grade. He would video blog his team’s tournaments and adventures. This hobby and craft continue to grow. With an incredibly bright future, Jeremy plans to continue producing content for Georgia Tech athletics, get his degree, and work in the sports media industry after graduation. Remember to stay tuned and keep an eye out for what he captures next.
“One of the most satisfying parts of creating videos is the power of storytelling. I love being able to highlight people’s stories that need to be heard and stories that can share positivity throughout a community.”
