"Sunset Junction: a personal musical" is a film by director Jesus Rodriguez. The film takes us through the lives of the underground artists who populate the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles. Set to an original soundtrack, Jesus brings the film to life through stunning dance numbers that range from a classical ballet class to a passionate tango. Sunset Junction reminds us of our own creative struggles and inspires us to rethink the everyday.

We have completed all of the filming for the movie and are in the editing stages. Although the film looks great, it was shot all over Los Angeles and is in need of color correction and a strong sound mix. Luckily, Jesus has found excellent spaces for both and is ready to begin the process. The money will help fund these facilities as well as pay for the labor of each process as they are time consuming.

The film is already catching some buzz from the press and is eagerly anticipated in the local community. We are spreading the word and receiving great feedback, so please consider donating and check out our website:
