Filmmmaker Jeannette Godoy screens her romcom feature film "Diamond In The Rough" on September 22nd as part of the NY Latino Film Festival at the Regal Union Square. Jeannette is a talented writer, producer, director and my lovely wife. She started in the business as a dancer/choreographer, choreographing Sir Mix A Lot's "Baby Got Back" before making her first commercial for Bridgestone Tires that took her to Cannes Lions Festival over there in France. Along the way, she's directed dozens of spots for Nike, Bumble, CDC, PetSmart and more. During the pandemic she created a web series "Pure Corazòn" for Bumble, then directed her first episode of television for HBO Max's "The Garcias". A few months later, the studio making "Diamond In The Rough" had her pitch on the film and she was in prep 5 days later. It's a great story.
We chat about the commonalities and differences of her many gigs, her latest passion project and documentaries. Of course we plug the NY Latino Film Festival and hope you can make it out.
Here's the trailer for the movie.

My cult classic mockumentary, “Dill Scallion” is online so I’m giving 100% of the money to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. I’ve decided to donate the LIFETIME earnings every December, so the donation will grow and grow. Thank you.
