Default MS-13 Web series needs your help!!

Hi everyone,
Please check out this new webseries called the Ten commandments. It is a dark tale of two brothers competing for power in an international gang - based on the real-life gang Mara Salvatrucha

http://www.filmaka.com/tencommandments.php

Its also nominated for a Webby, also known as the "Internets highest honor" according to the L.A. Times.

They are the only Spanish language show nominated.

If you like it, please vote!!!!
Go to http://pv.webbyawards.com

Sign in and register. You will receive a password via e-mail. Once signed in, go to "Online/Video". Then scroll to "Drama Series." Select TEN COMMANDMENTS.

I urge everyone to vote for this. They have a unique voice that is underrepresented in even mainstream media.

Not spam promise! Just trying to raise awareness about the web series. I know the filmmakers, met them when they came up from Mexico. I really want them to get the popular vote. Thought you guys would be interested in helping.

I watched the series. Powerful topic to make a film on. I like the concept though two brothers, one trying to take down the set and has to deal with the duality of power over familia. The other brother just a wreck and all messed up and in the way of the other bringin ms13 down.

Congrats to these mexican film makers.

I don't deny the sick world of gang banging. They have other projects they have done I'm sure. I am just giving props to Mexican filmmakers is all. And whats the f'n difference when they make films like Valkyrie (Racism, mass murders, genocide) and Notorious (drug dealing, murder) I know alot of people who have copies of scarface and blood in blood out.....

There's Hollywood versions and there are real life versions and there's fantasy and fiction. If you believe what you watch on the big screen or tv then you need help.

Okay enough derailing the thread with Chato...........

Back on Topic:

Different genres of entertainment have different audiences. Not everyone will agree with this movie and may go as far as to hate it. Others will look for comparisilon to the real world while many, may be looking for pure entertainment.

I think that this is a touchy subject mainly for the victims of the street gang. However, it is a popular name, one that holds a ruthless reputation which will attract audiences all around. The conflict is good. One that holds struggle and hope on both sides and it seems like a good drama story.

Props to the makers of the film and best of luck to them.

All good! Mine got a cuete in his burger king kids meal.

This thread is about filmmaking as I see it. Stop trippin fool, here is a little about the director....and another short cut he made.


Quote:
Luis Bernal Salazar was born 28 years ago in México City, he moved to Leon when he was five because of 85's earthquake. At the age of fourteen he began writing for comic books and published several stories in a Heavy-Metal type magazine called El Ático (The Attic). When he was 18, he moved to Puebla to continue with his engineer career but he dropped out of the university to continue his true passions: storytelling and filmmaking. He left México to live in Madrid, Spain, where he studied screenplay writing, editing, directing and cinematography. He came back to México recently to start working in production and as an assistant director in advertisement and music videos; he quickly began directing second units. On the side, he started doing short films with his associate, the cinematographer Rodrigo López Aldana, for Filmaka since "the secret" competition and together have done three short films and a 10 episode series for them. After winning the 1st Runner Up in Filmaka's 2007 Competition, Luis is currently writing the screenplay for his first feature film. His favorite directors are Stanley Kubrick, Luis Buñuel, and David Fincher, the writers that he admires most are Paul Schrader and Charlie Kaufman
