Eliaz Rodriguez is a self-taught filmmaker from Chicago. In 2008 he co-created the comedy group Wood Sugars and over the next five years produced/directed hundreds of films, web series, podcasts, and live comedy shows. In October of 2013 he made his first solo short film, an adaptation of a true story entitled Beverly, which went on to win Best In Show of the Cinema Minima Residency and Best of Fest of the Indie Incubator Film Fest. Eliaz can also be heard weekly on segments of the podcast he engineers, named CinemaJaw - the greatest movies podcast ever.

Beverly Reed Scott (Oye') is a gifted writer and fierce activist. Her prose, poetry and messages are conjured from her soul and her rhythmic alignment with nature. She is a natural storyteller, trained in Original Voice Technique by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Jungian Analyst and bestselling author. Her voice is colored by her experiences, having been born, raised in Englewood during the 60's and 70's, her coming of age tales are wrought with anguish, joy, love and pain. She is publishing her memoir as a serial and will read from My Perilous Journey #1 Vol. 1.
