Rodrigo Lopez Aldana and Luis Bernal Salazar with The Guild’s Felicia Day

Last week, filmmakers Luis Bernal Salazar and Rodrigo Lopez Aldana travelled from Mexico City to Los Angeles to attend the 1st Annual Streamy Creative Arts and Awards Ceremonies.   Their dramatic Filmaka web series THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF LA VIDA LOCA received a nomination for BEST ARTISTIC CONCEPT.   THE TEN COMMANDMENTS was the only non-English language web series to receive a nomination - in any category.    While in LA, Luis and Rodrigo met with Deepak Nayar (Bend It Like Beckham, Lost Highway) and the Filmaka team as well as a television and movie production company.

At the Streamys, Luis and Rodrigo walked the Red Carpet, conducted press interviews, and mingled with web celeb Felicia Day, who took home Streamys for Best Actress in a Comedy and Best Comedy (The Guild).  Felicia also stars in the hit web series Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog which won several awards at the event.

HP_Com_butcher_knifeWhat would you do if your brother founded a local clique for an international gang? Beat ‘em? Or join ‘em? How about a little of both?

Watch the stakes go up as the bodies start falling. In THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF LA VIDA LOCA, two brothers lock in a battle of wills to see who will find justice – or vengeance.

Filmaka’s original web series, inspired by the real-life gang Mara Salvatrucha (or MS-13), just received a STREAMY AWARD nomination for BEST ARTISTIC CONCEPT for a Web Series. Witness this vision from the minds of Mexico’s LUIS BERNAL SALAZAR, RODRIGO LOPEZ ALDANA, and ARTURO GONZALEZ.

Mexico City’s Luis and Rodrigo are heading to LA this week to attend the awards ceremony and to meet with Filmaka.
