There are different types of creative artists. The experimental artist is one whose mind thrives on life experiences. They are meticulous in their art and perfectionists in their craft.
Their creativity is lifelong, using their own curiosity
as a guide to unearth their talent. This is the type
of artist you will find defines Eli Jimenes.
Hailing from the Dominican Republic, Eli brings his multicultural flare and talents to every aspect of his work.
As a producer, he has assisted in the film Dysmorphia, a film in a series of shorts presented for the Showtime channel. He then produced the short film Capoeira, an Audience Award winner at the HollyShorts film festival in Los Angeles. He is in the development of the feature film Todos Los Santos, to be shot in the Dominican Republic, as well as Follow the Rhythm, a film to empower marginalized communities to break
free through the art of Capoeira.
Eli received an Associate of Science for transfer in Film, Television, and Electronic Media from Los Angeles City College and is currently completing his Bachelor of Arts in Television,Film, and Media Studies from
California State University

He made his move to Los Angeles where he has appeared on TV episodes of CSI Miami and Cold Case on CBS. His feature film credits also include The Murder of Hi Good and Suburban Cowboy.
In his spare time, he loves to travel with his family
and spend time on the beach.
Stubborn, thirty-year-old Memo Hernandez fell short of his dream, and now he must return to his estranged father in his childhood home. But just when things are at their worst, he rediscovers the passion of his youth – the Brazilian martial art of Capoeira – and with it, redemption.
