Director Statement

For 2 months during the summer of 2016, Domonique (DOMO), Jeff Zavala and I storyboarded, planned and organized 45 individuals to create "The Portfolio Project". The premise was her vision of a web series "Domo and The City". The sheer professionalism, preparation, and talents of all participants allowed us to complete the shoot in 6 hours. I'm so very proud of what these individuals were able to accomplish with such amazing grace, attitude and love. Special thanks to Lisa Garcia Deleon and her family for opening their venue to us. Enjoy.
