As our initial recruitment efforts to come a close, I am so thrilled by the level of excitement from so many more aspiring filmmakers and designers who now have another opportunity in NYC to develop their creative and technical skills while in high school. 🎥🙏
I think it’s appropriate to quote a classic… “If you build it, they will come!” ⚾️🧢🎥

Shoutout & Huge Thanks to Yhancy Nunez from New Heights Printworks @newheightsprint
For nearly a decade, Yhancy, a Bronx creative and entrepreneur, has been an incredible support in my film and education career. From the early days of printing movie posters and screening tickets for LPZ, to now handling all the printing for Motion Picture Technical High School, Yhancy has been nothing short of amazing! 🙏🙏🙏
As he handed over the latest batch of @motionpicturenyc brochures, Yhancy shared how he's watched my grind over the years, trying to break into the industry. Now, through Motion Picture Technical High School, we're opening doors for diverse kids to realize their dreams – opportunities that were scarce when I started.
Yhancy, you're not just a collaborator; you're a friend and a key part of this journey. Thank you for being the nicest dude and an integral part of our story! 🙌

Check out some incredible pick-up shots captured with the Anthony Rubio in his hometown, the famous South Bronx. It's here, amidst the bustling streets and colorful parks, where Anthony's journey as an artist and nature enthusiast first took root.
Delving into his childhood memories during our interviews, we discovered fascinating stories of his upbringing in the Andrew Jackson Houses. His mother, a pivotal influence, always ensured he was impeccably dressed, igniting his passion for fashion early on. But it's the moments in the nearby park, often left to his own devices by his older brother, where Anthony truly connected with the natural world. These quiet, exploratory experiences may very well be the genesis of his unique fusion of fashion and love for animals.
A huge shout-out to the talented young Evan Hernandez, who brought young Anthony to life on screen, right in the very park that framed Anthony's formative years. Seeing history and present intertwine in this way was nothing short of movie magic.
Stay tuned for more updates as we bring this documentary to life, celebrating the intersections of nature, fashion, and the unbreakable spirit of the South Bronx.

An Evening to Remember at Westbury Arts! @westburyarts
Last night, Annmarie and I had the honor of sharing four short documentaries that we've passionately produced over the years while living and raising our family in Long Beach and Rockville Centre. ❤️
A heartfelt thank you to Westbury Arts for this incredible opportunity!
Each film, made with love, highlights some of the most inspiring individuals (and animals) you could ever meet. These stories are a testament to the love, resilience, and humanity found within our Long Island communities. A special acknowledgment to Alicia Evans, who entrusted us with her powerful story and was in attendance to see the film’s world premiere. @aliciafiberarts
Thank you to everyone who joined us and engaged in the Q&A. Your presence and support made the night even more memorable. Kudos to Stan Turetsky and the Westbury Arts team for orchestrating such a remarkable event. Your dedication to the arts and community is truly inspiring. And shoutout to Patty Eljaiek from Huntington Arts Council for always making powerful connections. @pattemade @huntingtonarts
Mark your calendars! We're thrilled to return on December 29th to showcase "South Shore." Get your tickets via the link in the BIO!

Had an incredible evening at MS53Q in Far Rockaway, Queens, with my good friend and talented filmmaker, Vee Bravo. It was a full-circle moment for Vee, returning to his alma mater to inspire the next generation about the wonders of filmmaking. @veebravo
I first crossed paths with Vee over a decade ago when he led education at TFI. Since then, we've embarked on a journey to teach and inspire kids from diverse backgrounds in the art of filmmaking. Our collaboration goes beyond teaching - we've also co-produced films, like "PRIMERA," now streaming on HBO Max. @primerafilm
Vee's passion as a filmmaker and educator reminds us that those who teach can also do extraordinary things. From teaching to creating, we're living proof of the dynamic impact educators can have both in and out of the classroom.
Here's to many more years of inspiring, creating, and transforming lives through film!

From Classroom to Camera Crew! 🤝🎥 @fssanews @nycschools #TheGoodLife
Throwback to the days at Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in Astoria, Queens, where two film teachers sparked a friendship that turned into a visionary alliance.
Today, we celebrate not just a friendship but a creative partnership that has blossomed beyond the four walls of a classroom. It's a tale of two dreamers, two educators, who believed in the power of storytelling and the magic of cinema.
'South Shore' is not just a film; it's a piece of our spirit, a narrative driven by advocacy, love, humanity, and artistry. Thanks to everyone who has helped us make this film! 🙏🎬
