Director Statement

This web series is close to my heart because it does border on the saying 'life imitates art'. I am from the Caribbean Islands and magic, voodoo, santeria has always been a part of my culture. This series is a lighthearted yet cheeky version that I want to bring to audiences everywhere because it does have heart and humor and is so much fun. I am having the best time making this series and I hope that the viewers will enjoy it as well and will want to see more.
