Burbank, CA – Award-winning film director and Latin filmmaker Art Camacho will be hosting a “book signing” at the Martial Arts History Museum on December 2, 2017. His first book, “A Filmmaker’s Journey,” which was recently released on Amazon.com, is a personal look at growing and struggling within the Latin community and the trials he faced in his dream to become a Hollywood film director.
Camacho, who’s career spans over 25 years in the motion picture business, is considered one of the leading action film directors in the independent film market. Some of his credits include such films as Half Past Dead, Assassin X, X-Treme Fighter, Little Big Foot and many more.
“As a whole, we Latino-Americans tend to lower our expectations of ourselves. Instead of dreaming for a brighter future, we find ourselves settling for a bleak reality. There is so much talent and passion in my community than we realize if only we allow ourselves to dream beyond what is in front of us and work towards those dreams. I wrote this book with the intention of sharing my journey, warts and all. To show others, that they too can reach for the stars and live their dreams,” notes Camacho.
Although many of the Latin community have confronted a great many obstacles, Camacho reveals how he overcame prejudice, obesity and being bullied as a young kid who persevered to follow his dream. It is a book about hope and inspiration and how anyone can move past life’s barriers and cling onto their dreams. “Even though the book has just been released on Amazon, I have had many people contact me and tell me how much they can relate to the book. How they have had similar struggles like I had. We are all human and I feel writing this book, it’s a story about all of us and how we can strive to reach our goals and hopefully, fulfill our dreams,” adds Camacho.
“His Life’s story is both poignant, uplifting, told with a sense of irony and humor. It is an inspiration to every young kid who dreams for something more than just what others expect of them. It is about facing life challenges head on and breaking through,” points out co-author Michael Matsuda, who is also the president of the Martial Arts History Museum.
The book signing will be hosted at the museum at 2319 W. Magnolia Blvd., Burbank, Ca 91506 on Dec. 2, 2017 at 6:30 pm. It is a FREE EVENT to the public.
