NHMC Presents Annual

LatinX Stream Showcase

The Latinx Stream Showcase is an educational and workforce development program geared towards diverse Latinx creators in front of and behind the camera. Showcased are directors, actors, writers, directors of photography, and various crew and editing positions.

The product is a series of short films between 5-10 minutes in length, viewed by entertainment executives, streaming services, networks, showrunners, production companies, casting directors, managers, agents, and other decision-makers in the industry. The shorts are streamed on a specialized website featuring our creators’ talents.

Bios, headshots, and contact information of all participants in each project are available on the website for easy networking and sharing access to the industry.

Character Descriptions


Late 20s, a non-binary Latine spoken word poet. They ooze androgyny in everything they do. They lack patience, but it’s because they’re tired of everyone’s bullshit. (Note: Em can be played by anyone non-binary/trans)

Sides for Em & Liz


Early 20s, Black punk with a heart of gold. She wears black to seem harder than she is, it works most of the time
Sides for Em & Liz


Late 20s/30s. Just your average guy living his ordinary life. Tries hard at everything he does, even though he may not succeed, and is surprisingly athletic when he needs to be. Given the proper attire of course.
Sides for Marcello & Boss


40s/50s. An imposing man who seems perpetually annoyed by the decisions people around him make. He’ll make you regret a bad decision 100% of the time.

Sides for Marcello & Boss

Ominous Man

Physically imposing, 20-40 years old Latinx/Hispanic, deep voice.
Sides for Ominous Man


30s. The type of woman who is never afraid to say what’s on her mind. She takes pride in rebelling against the system… all systems. She’s got this appointment and then she’s got shit to do.
Sides for Dani & Tim


20s. Young. Naive. Nervous. This is not his world, and his anxiety gives off a real “see something, say something”. But deep down, his heart is pure and his crotch is itchy.

Sides for Dani & Tim


Late 20s. Handsome, reserved, mopey, and closed off about accepting beautiful things into his life because he hasn’t done his healing through therapy. He waits for good things to fall on his lap.
Sides for Jack & Jill


Late 20s. Cute and chipper. A hopeless romantic with a history of being a doormat. She has been working on herself and is ready to receive beautiful things.
Sides for Jack & Jill
