GOLDHEART PRODUCTIONS, A COMPANY WITH A LATIN FEMALE HEART

Published

on

bruna rubio official image

GOLDHEART Productions is a creative TV, Film, and new media production company that
believes in and supports gender and minority equality.
Founded by Bruna Rubio, an empowered, talented and inspiring Latina woman who, with her
hard work, has managed to open many doors in the great Hollywood industry.

From an early age, Bruna demonstrated a passion and talent for acting. She was born in Spain,
where she got her first job in television commercials. At the age of 20, she worked as an actor
in the renowned program Cruz y Raya.

There, she realized that she wanted her work to be recognized beyond the Spanish border, so she moved to the United States, where she continued her successful career in Miami and Los Angeles.

The United States has become her second home and has given her the opportunity to continue her acting career and explore other fields in the world of entertainment, but this time, behind the scenes as a producer and writer.

Bruna’s passion for the cinema and her desire to get ahead as a woman in the Hollywood
industry have motivated her to open her own production house, where projects such as “El
Tigre Callejero”, “Las Parcas”, “Nevaeh”, “Brutum Fulmen”, and “Vampiras”, among others,
have become a reality and have been recognized and applauded in different festivals around
the world.

“Las Parcas” and “Vampiras”were filmed as short films and have been very well received by
audiences at festivals and by investors who are interested in making them feature lengths. The
two stories have as protagonists women who come from a mythological and fantastic world to
do justice on earth.
“Nevaeh” is a psychological thriller that explores, in an exciting and unique narrative, what a
woman is willing to do to protect the most precious thing in her life, her daughter Nevaeh.

“Brutum Fulmen” is the story of a woman who struggles to keep her spirit alive in a
transcendent dimension far away from the pain and the abuse of her husband.
These four projects, with women as protagonists in front of and behind the camera, show the
desire of GoldHeart Productions to end the discrimination and the rejection of minorities in the
industry by supporting diversity in the selection of talent and production crews from all over the
world.

Beyond being a persona in cinema, Bruna wants to be part of the cultural change that is
happening in Hollywood by sharing her experience, her professionalism and her
“GOLDHEART” with people in the world of film.


With offices in Madrid and Ciudad de Mexico and a studio in Los Angeles, the heart of
Hollywood, Goldheart Productions offers these venues to all who want their stories told.

How Deven Powers Became Mr. Hollywood

Published

on

Deven Powers, also known as Mr. Hollywood, is the host of the LA Live Film Festival from 2018 to 2020, founder and CEO of the Black Film Festival Los Angeles. You can catch Mr. Hollywood on the cover of  Film Central Magazine’s The Bad Boyz of Hollywood, hosting “The Mr. Hollywood TV Show” on AT&T U-Verse, Charter Spectrum, and coming soon to Amazon Prime. Mr. Hollywood is becoming a voice that people are looking out for. 

But how did Deven Powers become Mr. Hollywood? Here’s his story. 

Born on February 27, 1983, in San Bernardino, California as Deven Lavale Purifoy, Mr. Hollywood was the 10th of 14th children. His father was a pastor and his mother a great gospel singer. 

Mr. Hollywood started playing the drums at the age of nine, and by 13, he was given his very first drum set by a member of the Legendary Gap Band, making him California’s State drummer in his church congregation. 

During his freshman year at Rancho Verde High School in Moreno Valley, CA, Deven joined the marching band which went on to win several Championships.

The First Step to His Career 

Before he became the founder and CEO of the Black Film Festival Los Angeles, Deven’s jump to fame came from hosting. 

“I got my start as an NBC News Radio Host on 102.3FM, 106.5FM, and 105.0AM in Redlands CA back in 2017 which later lead to me hosting the Mr. Hollywood TV Show, then the LA Live Film Festival, and the Film Fest Los Angeles,” Deven said.

Entering Show Business 

Other than hosting, Mr. Hollywood will also be starring in the upcoming film The Bad Boyz of Hollywood which is set for release by summer or fall of this year. 

According to Mr. Hollywood, their goal is to make the film available on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and other streaming networks for it to gain a larger audience from all around the world. 

“I [want to] follow in the footsteps of the great African-American filmmakers, directors, and actors that came before me,” Deven said. 

Putting God First

Being the son of a pastor and a gospel singer, Mr. Hollywood values his faith greatly. He even applies it to his career and this has helped him to remain humble despite his numerous accomplishments. 

“I learned to remain humble because what God gives, He can take away. I’ve learned that no matter how much success you obtain, no one is better than anyone else and that you have to always give back and inspire others. [Because] If I’m not making the lives of others better, then I’m not doing my job,” he said.
