And I was so fortunate to have a super talented cast : @mark.a.sanchez @sapornio @rudysautoreview @_camilaaruiz and crew: @erikwerlin @nickyriffraff @datmicguy @sh8dyone @beredpandit @sweet1985jewels @ivancarrillo78 and the beautiful music made by @valente630 @marknoisez @andoflo Everyone gave their best and it made my vision even better! It was a collaborative project and I’m so grateful that the stars finally aligned for me!! Really, everything just flowed and it was effortless and just so fun to make! Thank you to everyone who donated! I really wouldn’t have finished it without you guys! And just thank you for all the love and support! Especially to my family and friends! Yay! So happy!

LENA having a moment while looking at herself in the mirror. When we shot this I thought about the line in the film β€œAs Good as it Gets” Melvin (Jack Nicholson) says β€œwhat if this is as good as it gets” and me as Lena thought that in this moment but also thinking nah, this isn’t it. There’s more, it gets better! That’s the battle she goes through in the film. Do you doubt and overthink and stop yourself or do you just do you and don’t think and just act? Hmm it’s definitely a battle. πŸŽ₯πŸŽžβ˜ΊοΈπŸ™ƒπŸ˜•πŸ˜³πŸŒŸπŸŽ₯❀️ trailer coming soon! 😘

For everyone who wants to visit #Tijuana go to El Valle de Guadalupe. An hour away after crossing the border and you can take a bus tour and either see what they suggest or ask them to take you here. 1. @vinospijoan 2. @tregalline 3. @decantosvinicola #amazing #vinyards #valledeguadalupe #ensenada #weekendgetaway πŸ·πŸ…πŸ§€πŸ₯–πŸπŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Here I am, making sure I like how the shots are coming out! Hehe Swipe to see β€œLena” and β€œJay” played by @mark.a.sanchez having a moment during their dance. And to see this amazing view! We shot this in another great location in Echo Park and we were so lucky to get the perfect lighting also! #dp πŸŽ₯ @erikwerlin #bts #photography πŸ“Έ @sh8dyone #director yours truly! πŸ˜ŽπŸ€—πŸŽ¬πŸŒŸπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™πŸΌβ€οΈ Now time for #postproduction 😳😬

It was so nice to work with #actress Camila Ruiz who is also my niece and goddaughter! This is her first film and it was amazing directing her and guiding her. We have a great scene together and we captured a beautiful moment! She plays β€œYoung Lena” and it was something I wanted to share. When your adult self takes a moment and remembers your child self. The child always reminds you of who you truly are! πŸ€—β€οΈπŸŽ¬πŸŒŸπŸŽ₯πŸ’•πŸ“Έ @sh8dyone

Another amazing location! I saw the #virgendeguadalupe and I wanted to use this image as a symbol for LENA’S innocence. In this scene β€œPeter” and β€œLena” see their boss β€œEl Jefe” played by my brother, Rudy Ruiz! Really fun scene to shoot! And these guys had us all laughing! 🎬🌟πŸŽ₯πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ“Έ @sh8dyone

First we were serious then we couldn’t stop laughing! Swipe to see! #onset with my co-star @sapornio Who played β€œPeter” in the film. β€œPeter and β€œLena” are co-workers and friends but maybe they could be more than just that! πŸ˜‰πŸ™ƒπŸ˜ And side note, actor Sapo Hernandez is hilarious! So much fun to work with you! And for a few takes we did a bit of improv and they came out so funny! #goodtimes #film #drama with a touch of #humor πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸŽ¬πŸŒŸπŸŽ₯πŸ€—πŸ™ƒπŸ“Έ @sh8dyone

Scene 4 but second shot of the day. LENA getting ready for work and having an internal monologue. I always love to take a moment and just look at myself in the mirror and just feel what I’m feeling haha. If that makes sense! This scene was that. 🎬🌟πŸŽ₯πŸ™ŽπŸ»β€β™€οΈ #onset #bts πŸ“Έ @sh8dyone
