To reclaim her life and freedom, a woman must kill her past to own her future.
“Boss” is about a Latina assassin who gets revenge on her male boss as he prepares to seek asylum in Central America for crimes she committed for him.
The money raised for this film is going into the production. It will pay cast, crew, production costs, catering and post production.
The journey to making this film into a reality is a very personal one. As a Latino artist, I feel a responsibility to represent Latinos is a positive light. I want to make this film for the people. I'm someone who wants to bring joy to people with my art and with the support from the community, we can make this film into a reality. This is not an investment into me, this is an investment into themselves and to their entertainment.
All projects will encounter hurdles but it's how we get over them that matters. Therefore, I will send personalized video messages and behind the scenes clips of what we are doing updating them on the status of the film. Communication is key to everything I do and so I feel an extra responsibility to the public that I update them with everything that's in regards to their film.
Thank You all so very much! Muchas Gracias Por Todo!!!
My name is Armando Ucles. I'm the writer, producer and director of “Boss”. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. The people and its various communities inspired my artistic and creative aspirations.
I graduated from San Francisco State in 2008 and I wrote, produced and directed two short films, “The Nightshift” and “Hello Sir…”. As an artist, I feel very proud to be part of a profession that brings people together. As a Latino American, I feel a responsibility to tell stories that present my community in a positive light.
In 2021, I became a certified life coach. I help people find personal fulfillment in their lives. Life coaching, like filmmaking, requires a lot of patience, a lot of creativity and a lot of passion. You have to love what you do to have a happy life.
My goal is to bring joy to people through my work and I'm so proud and grateful to be where I am today. There's so much more in life for me to learn and I'm ready to take on any challenge life has in store for me.

Javier is a first-generation Mexican Puerto Rican, born and raised in the Bay Area, California. His parents came to the US seeking opportunity and, on that path, found each other. Javier was born in Oakland, CA and moved to Castro Valley, CA when he was eight years old. His family remained in their Castro Valley home well into his adulthood. Javier moved to San Leandro in 2012 where he is currently raising his two young children.
As a child, Javier gravitated towards the arts, often creating movies with his friends, using his family camcorder. When he was not directing films, he was dancing while his father sang and played the guitar. As Javier grew, he continued to seek all opportunities to perform; from High School events to MCing for an award show with a marketing company Javier worked for after graduating High School. In his mid- twenties, Javier attended City College acting courses, where he met several rising filmmakers and actors.
Throughout the years, Javier has had the fortune of working with many talented filmmakers, developing and sharpening his skills as an actor. Javier continues to seek out opportunities to fulfill his lifelong dreams of working in the arts, in writing screenplays, working behind the scenes for independent films, and on the screen with short and feature films.
The “Boss” campaign is officially launched!!! I'm excited and so happy with the contributions it has received so far.
What a great start and let's keep the ball rolling!!!
