Aaron Nabus here and thanks for tuning into the Hall H Show!

For episode 67, we continue with our focus on independent filmmakers. At WonderCon 2019, in Anaheim, CA, I got a chance to have a pretty cool conversation with the creative development team behind Carmina (currently in production), the first movie from the anthology series, The Tales From Midnight:

  • Mark A.J. Nazal (Director, Visual Effects Supervisor, Executive Producer)
  • Erica Juliet (Lead Actress, Producer)
  • Jomari “Joe” Arciaga (Producer)

From The Tales From Midnight: Carmina press kit:

Mark is Primetime Emmy® Award Winning Visual Effects Artist & Supervisor and filmmaker best known for his work on Fox’s hit show, Gotham.

Erica is an international actress, writer and model working between Bali, LA, and Manila. She has been featured in TV shows such as Gang Related, Bones, NCIS LA, 90210, Legit, Parks and Recreation, Baby Daddy, and The Comeback.

Jomari is a Co-Founder and Executive Director (Emeritus) of the Filipino American Chamber of Commerce, Greater LA. He has also served on several non-profit boards, including FilamARTS, the Association for the Advancement of Philippine Arts and Culture.

Carmina is a fantasy drama that tells the story of a young woman played by Erica Juliet who discovers that she’s always had the power to fight back against her demons.

The character’s demons are under the guise of issues faced by an undocumented immigrant suffering from domestic abuse.

The narrative and visual framework of Carmina comes from a mixed Filipino American background with a character that lives in a small and conservative town in Middle America contrasted by the character’s cultural heritage which happens to involve a “diwata” from Philippine mythology. This mythological character will be played by Filipino Actress Geneva Cruz.

Please enjoy my conversation with team behind Carmina, Mark, Erica and Joe!
