DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

My goal is to create, execute and deliver stories that reach, entertain and immerse audiences. I developed that passion and my creativity at a very young age. As a child, I developed a passion for filmmaking, photography, sculpture, printmaking, and multimedia. I recall borrowing my father’s beta camera to shoot sequences with my G.I. Joe figures and buying fireworks at the corner store to recreate scenes with visual effect mini-explosions. Additionally, by the age of twelve, I designed the brand identity for Ropa Modelo, S.A. a jean company in Mexico.

This multi-artistic background is what has fuels my vision as a filmmaker. The stories I like to tell are inspired by true stories, my experiences or by recreating an experience that I enjoy. For example, I am a big fan of roller coasters and how they make me feel. In my opinion that’s what Horror and Slasher films are all about. To immerse and audience in a wild ride that will make them jump and scream.

I realized that this type of film had never been done in English where Latinos and people of color are the leads and they are not portrayed in stereotypical ways. This is why while developing this indie feature, I was very conscious of making sure that there would be a diverse cast in lead roles. My goal was to make sure that we could tell a story that would showcase the talent of up and coming actors of color. That was a very important for both my producing partner and I. This film showcases the talents of our young diverse cast and I’m proud to say that we have made the first “All American Slasher” with a full diverse cast in non-stereotypical roles.

I hope you enjoy my passion and hard work in the stories I tell.
