HIDE IN THE LIGHT is a horror film about an adventurous group of friends dare to break into the abandoned orphanage and quickly find themselves trapped and fighting against unnatural forces.
THE LAST NIGHT INN a crime/thriller that reveals the intercutting stories of desperation, sex and deceit, which takes place at a crappy LA motel in a night of coincidences, betrayals and crime.
THE BROKEN LEGACY a coming of age film that follows a lost screenwriter who recruits the help of an egotistical philosopher in order to attract the girl of his dreams while voluntarily testing a new drug at a research facility.
THE LAST TRAIN a drama inspired by true events that follows Anthony and Rain, strangers who have chosen this night to die, but when an argument prevents them from jumping in front of the same train they are forced to confront their demons and take a chance on love as wary partners on the road to hope.
4 – What do you love most about your work?
I love being on set and making things happen. I’m very hands-on. I’m also very organized and very good with budgeting so I take pride in being able to stretch every penny to maximize the production value. I try to keep busy and love meeting new people who share our passion for storytelling and expanding our network.
5 – What talents and hobbies do you have?
I’m also an actress so when I’m not behind the camera, you can definitely find me in front of it; and on my free time, I’m either reading the next project or watching a new TV show.
6 – What inspires you?
People. Random people; anyone who’s passionate about their craft, no matter what it is, I find that inspiring and motivating. I admire anyone who’s not afraid to take risks and fights for what they believe in.
7 – What is the hardest part about filmmaking?
Not doing it. Every production has its own challenges, but everything is possible, you have to just go for it. Everyone knows it’s a tough industry, but every obstacle comes with a solution, you just have to find it, and keep moving.
8 – What foreign languages, if any, do you read, write, and/or speak?
I’m from Mexico, so Spanish is my first language, and English is my second.
9 – What are your overall career goals?
Keep creating good content, and moving into bigger budgets.
10 – What projects are you currently working on?
At the moment, I have several projects under development. “The Bone Box” is the next one in the pipeline and I’m very excited about it. It has great cast attached and it’s a fantastic horror script about a desperate grave robber who comes to believe that he’s being haunted by those he stole from.
11 – What upcoming events, if any, do you intend to participate in?
At the moment we are focusing on AFM, and right after that, we have AFI.
12 – What links would you like to share?
13 – What else, if anything, would you like to tell our readers?
“If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.”
