National Commercial for Breztri

This was an incredible commercial to shoot for Aztra Zenica and Breztri. 

We shot this and was one of the first productions to shoot during Covid-19. All safety procautions were taken and we all had fun time shooting this fabulous commercial. 

I got to work with some of the most successful "behind the scenes" talent around. My director was multiple Academy and Emmy Award Winning, Robert Stromberg, who was just divine to work with and a true gem! Our Cinematographer was the remarkable Academy Award Winning Claudio Miranda, who made our commercial just remarkable to look at. It is a stunning display of all of our collective talents coming together. What a joy to have lent my talent to this extraordinary campaign. 

You can also see me in the print ads as well. Let me know where you see them!

National Commercial for The Home Depot

All of my dreams came true with this one. Truth: I thought I was auditioning for a "holiday spot", which would have just made my head explode.

 

However, to shoot a "Home Depot" spot, inside a Home Depot, just made my year. I have always wanted to do a commercial for them since I am such a DIY Person! 

Enjoy me, playing "Mom" in this sweet little spot called, 'De-clutter: HDX Tough Totes'.

National Commercial for Liberty Mutual

Resolution from The City of Los Angeles

The City of Los Angeles, City Council, and Councilwoman Nury Martinez hosted The 4th Annual Latino Heritage Month Latina Breakfast that "celebrates the rich and vibrant contributions that Latinas have made to Los Angeles and our great country during Latino Heritage month." And, this year they focused on Latinas in the LGBTQ community that "made contributions towards  inclusivity and diversity in the LGBTQ movement."

 

It was resolved, that by the adoption of the Resolution given to Ms. Bonilla, that the Los Angeles City Council commended and recognized her as The Latinas in Pride Special Honoree, and for her work in promoting and advancing, LGBTQ rights,  commitment to philanthropy, all the while serving as an icon and role model for the next generation of Latinas.

Sundance Film Festival

Clemency 

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Michelle plays “Sonia”, the assistant to Bernadine, a prison warden working on death row, played by the great Alfre Woodard.  This film was just incredible to work on and the cast was phenomenal.

 

CLEMENCY is an enthralling, immersive, atmospheric film as well as a haunting, tough-minded inquiry into the dignity of work and the morality of capital punishment.
