About the Guests

JOSELITO SELDERA is an accomplished filmmaker whose projects have been featured by the Sun Valley Film Festival, LA Shorts Film Festival, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, Vail Film Festival, Newport Beach Film Festival, Filmfest Dresden (Germany), Hollyshorts, and The Documentary Channel.

Before moving to Los Angeles and the world of motion pictures, Joselito studied creative writing at Emerson College in Boston, and writing and improvisation at Chicago's The Second City and Improv Olympic. He wrote and directed sketch comedy for the Chicago group "The Uncomfortables," who performed at various festivals and theatres around the Midwest.

Joselito’s recent Directing work includes his first feature film, END OF FALL (2015), the short films NO LOVE SONG (2013) starring Rosanna Arquette and UNSETTLED (2012) his USC thesis film; and the documentary LINES (2011) about three teen skateboarders transitioning into adulthood. His screenplay, RETURN TO MANILA, won the TVWriter.com Spec Scriptacular screenwriting competition in 2004.

Joselito received his MFA in film production from the University of Southern California, an MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College, and a BA in English from Illinois Wesleyan University. He is an instructor at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts.

PRODUCER NICOLAAS BERTELSEN hails from Ames, Iowa, and became interested in film as a child when he discovered that his grandfather played a small role in THE GODFATHER: PART II. This opened the door to the idea of working in film - for a kid who couldn’t have been more removed from Hollywood. Nicolaas now has over 20 years of physical production experience and is currently producing THE TOMORROW MAN with Anonymous Content and Noble Jones (THE SOCIAL NETWORK). His other recent feature films includes RUST CREEK (in post-production), DEIDRA & LANEY ROB A TRAIN (Sundance), THE LAND (Sundance), END OF FALL (New Filmmakers New York), and  three feature films for James Franco’s RabbitBandini Productions: YOSEMITE (Slamdance), MEMORIA (Austin Film Festival), and THE LABYRINTH (Screamfest). Nicolaas holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Cinema-Television from the University of Southern California, and is a member of the Producers Guild of America.
