Late to put out a “Black Lives Matter” statement, the marketing team at White Claw holds an emergency meeting to find the right words while remaining on-brand.

 

Bernardo Cubría was recently nominated for best playwright at The Ovation Awards, Stage Raw Awards and The Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Awards for his play The Giant Void In My Soul. He was the co-writer of the short Spanish Class that won Best Comedy at The NBC Universal Shorts Awards in 2018. His play, Neighbors: A Fair Trade Agreement was a Semi-Finalist for the O’Neil in 2017. It received a world premiere at INTAR in NYC in the fall of 2017.  In 2016, The Judgment of Fools received three critically acclaimed productions in NYC, LA, and Houston, TX. The Redhead is Coming was featured at F*ckfest at The Brick in NYC in 2015.

Chelsea Gonzalez was named ‘Most Powerful Voice’ by New York’s Blackbird Film Festival for her first short film, Susanne and The Man. The film was an official selection at 25 film festivals including Sarasota, DeadCenter, and DC Independent. She went on to take top honors at the Los Angeles Connect Film Festival (Best Comedic Short) and San Francisco Actors Film Festival (Best Actor).

As an actress, Chelsea appears on Hulu’s The Mindy Project, CBS’s Criminal Minds, ABC’s Castle, and HBO’s The Jinx. She shared the screen with Doug Jones as Gloria in Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions’ Ouija: Origin of Evil.

As a director, she recently wrapped her second short film, All the Wrong Things, which is just beginning the festival circuit with six screenings so far. She is currently in development on her first feature.

Chelsea strives to create work that takes a hard look at the darkest parts of ourselves and our society, while still cultivating light and laughter.  She lives in Los Angeles.
