Meet The Team Behind Egalitarian Arts

David Legel & Andy Aguila are childhood friends who have dedicated their lives to the arts.

David comes from a Irish-Jewish American background and grew up among the streets of downtown LA. Living in poverty and temporary homelessness, he and his mother built a stable life allowing him to explore his passion for the arts and communicate the diverse perspectives learned during his youth. David has over a decade of education and work experience in the industry and remains resourceful even under the most bleak circumstances. 

 

Andy Aguila comes from a Latin-Native American background and grew up in the San Fernando Valley under poverty and an unstable learning environment. Andy eventually found healthy outlets to give his life structure when introduced to the arts. With a background in illustration and animation, Andy has since grown a passion for expressing his diverse voice as a filmmaker using his pre-existing skills. 

 

While working together David and Andy have won "Best North American Drama" from Canada's Alternative film festival, "Special Selection for Dramatic Excellence" from the Believe Psychology Film Festival, and a "Special Achievement Award" from The Los Angeles Live Score Film Festival, to name a few. 

 

David & Andy have also worked on viral web-shows such as "Life as a Mermaid", "WitchHaven", & "Horror History."

 

Their complementary philosophies & work experience ensures the development of balanced, marketable, thought provoking entertainment in film & television. David & Andy are a team that believes good things come to those that make, not those that wait.
