First-gen college graduate, I studied political science/international relations and became an accomplished journalist and foreign correspondent before deciding that screenwriting is a better form of telling stories that matter. I create multi-layered characters who are unlike anything else I've seen on screen. I'm fearless because I respect challenges and know how to stick to a problem until I can sort it out. I love the depth of Wim Wenders as well as the farce of Will Ferrell. I love driving my VW Westy and aspire to one day have a cherried out Chevy Impala convertible that I can drive through the Nevada desert while belting out some Sinatra.

Sobriety, recovery, stand up, music as character, sexuality, second chances, starting over, mental illness, weight/body image, culinary stories. dual female protagonists, underdogs, lost causes, LGBTQ issues.An LGBTQ Latinx woman who hit rock bottom and lived to tell the tale. A misfit kid from Texas who made up her own episodes of The Jeffersons. Comedy was my way out of an often abusive and dysfunctional home life. My early influences were Richard Pryor, George Carlin, GIlda Radner, Carol Burnett and Mel Brooks.
I started out on a path to a career in entertainment, but got sidetracked by a 20+ year career in the oil industry. When I was laid off in 2015, I took my gold watch and severance check and moved to LA and haven't looked back.
10 years sober, I know the pain of losing it all and joy of being given a second chance to rebuild my life from the ground up. Because I came to writing as a career later in life, I bring a wealth of life experience and a professionalism of someone more seasoned. I can (and have) taken network notes with grace and know how to turnaround work on a tight deadline.

Albert FernandezMexicanDrama, ComedyStaff Writer, WA, SA, Sundance Latinz Screenwriters Fellowship nominee,PGA Power of Diversity Master Workshop Participant, CBS Diversity Sketch Showcase Writer, NYU Tisch Film Alumn.BothBothafernandezproductions@gmail.comIG: @albertbfernandezPolitical, Current Topics, Coming of AgeFirst Gen college student born to former migrant farm workers in Fresno, who ended up at the Obama White House and wrote a speech for VP Biden.As a writer I aim to shine a light on stories of the Latino experience that haven't been told before - beyond the stereotype. My style is more fitting of a Sorkin Universe, the characters drawn from my Washington/New York past. My start in entertainment was via the world of child acting and much of my dialogue is with the perfromace element in mind. Very keen on details, they are EVERYTHING in my scripts - in a Fincher way, I will pull up menus of restaurants to make sure what the characters are eating is something they would really serve there. Blessed with a broad range I have written everything from depositions, to eulogies, to speeches for poltical officals and of course both genres of comedy, drama including features.

A native Angelino by way of the San Fernando Valley, most of her summers were spent traveling through Mexico until her family decided to stay in Guadalajara… for five years. Too American to be Mexican or too Mexican to be thoroughly American, Ana Lydia has straddled both cultures in her personal life and her former PR career… until she decided to follow her dreams and return to film school to focus on writing and directing stories that highlighted the complex diversity of today's multicultural urban communities. Ana Lydia is a confirmed, childfree dog-mom currently obsessing over the latest Mexican-American authored books, the LA-art scene, and everything food but tacos… because she happily admits to being a stereotype when it comes to her love of all things Mexican food.

Veteran of several media companies with large Latinx audiences who is eager to step out from behind the scenes and tell stories in my voice.
Child of Mexican immigrants who settled in breezy Santa Monica — until I was born, which prompted them to give up the beach and move to nearby Inglewood, home of incessant airplane noise and a huge donut beloved by Instagram influencers. They’ve forgiven me (they like donuts). I’m most interested in writing about the minutiae related to growing up/living in neighborhoods with large Latinx communities as well as examining/challenging ideas about masculinity in the Mexican/Mexican-American community.

I’m a freckle-faced, redheaded, first generation American whose parents hail from one of the most violent, drug-controlled regions of Mexico. I grew up in Los Angeles and lived in constant fear of authority because I was always afraid someone I loved was going to be deported. And I grew up getting my ass kicked by gangters who hated me because I was white, racist people who hated me for being Mexican, and my older brother who hated be for being born. It's through this lense that I tell stories.

No twitter, instead go to my website. It's way better. https://www.illvillskill.comstreet punk, skateboarding, southside Chicago survivor, fixated on narrative structure, enthusiasm for baseball anayltics, family dynamics, coming of age characters, criminal underbelly stories, music based subcultures and Buster KeatonGonna grind, bleed and pour my heart out for the work I do. When I was about 15, I saw the film Kids and was immediately transfixed. For the first time in my cinematic experience, I saw a world that felt real, immediate, absurd, but relateable. I was inspired to share my stories and reach others in the way Kids did for me.

Straight on 'til morning.I have failed, and those failures have fed my writing and brought me to a place where I believe in the pursuit of an absolute perfect episode of televison: one where we build the audience to a final scene, and in that scene their sorrow leads to tears, followed very shortly by uncontrollable laughter — a catharsis that carries us as we SMASH to end credits. I feel as though every drama should have a touch of humor, and every comedy should have a touch of the dramatic. A reflection of our truths.
