About the movie:
Green-Eyed Monster is a thriller that incorporates urban legends rooted in Hispanic Folklore and is about a group of friends who travel to an abandoned ranch in South Texas drawn by a legend of buried money.
David (Nick Barton) convinces his friends that there is money-for-the-taking buried at his uncle's Ranch and that he can lead them to it. His cousin Ashley (Estella Gomez) warns them that the place has a grim history, but the promise of riches is all too enticing. In trying to find the money, they uncover something buried within us all as one by one they mysteriously disappear.
Barboza completed his education at the University of North Texas where he studied Filmmaking. He received B.A.'s in both Radio, Television and Film and English Creative Writing in 2004. After graduation he was accepted into the Kodak Student Filmmaker Program at the Cannes Film Festival of 2004 and attended Cannes where he landed an Internship with Crystal Sky Inc. He was then invited to the American Film Market that same year to Intern with Crystal Sky again.
In 2006, he received the Best Screenplay Award at the 2006 EDOC film festival and was an official selection for the Film Club Horror Challenge in London, England in October 2006.
Toward the end of 2006, he began trying to find financing for a feature film idea he had hatched a few years earlier and was able to get Green Eyed Monster off of the ground. The film was shot on a modest budget with Barboza serving as Writer, Director, Producer, and Editor. The movie itself was written around a simple premise: If an audience is watching a movie about people digging around for money why not let them dig for their own?
Barboza is available for in studio interviews.
