Bianka WidaKay is a Brazilian born filmmaker residing in New York City since 2000. The first taste of the entertainment industry she's ever experimented was at the age of fourteen producing coveted dance parties far out in the woods for 2K+ guests, orchestrating crew and talent, hunting for sponsors, handling graphic design and advertising printing, all in an era that preceded cell phones, the internet and the Adobe takeover.


Bianka attributes her authentic style to a nonacademic background and hands-on training she received at community-based Manhattan Neighborhood Network. Her storytelling artistry is greatly credited by years of exposure to Humanistic Psychology (her choice of subject in college), language interpreting at multiple offices of the City of New York, and liaising for the culturally diverse environment of the United Nations; such exposure as a dialogue facilitator have sculpted her distinctive narrative style. Other visual art influences include working for several years as the first assistant for internationally acclaimed contemporary artist Daniel Senise, to hand-painting gelatin silver print photographs of fine art photographer and former husband Andre Cypriano. An avid Salsa dancer, Bianka acclaims her praised video editing pacing to the rhythmicality acquired over the years of extensive training in Afro-Cuban Casino and Mambo dance.


In her current capacity, Bianka directs documentaries, promo and demo videos, the show Salsa Stories, and Noise - an ongoing TV series that airs on selected public access channels in New York City which portrays side and angle relationships of New Yorkers. Additionally Bianka serves as a media team member for the Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College [Puerto Rican Voices-Se. 4 airing on CUNY TV], and the producer of the medical TV Show Objetivo Tu Salud [Se. 3], that airs weekly on the TV network Telemundo. She is also a selection panel member of 21 Islands Intl Short Film Fest, which in partnership with PRTT-Puerto Rican Traveling Theater, showcases films from island nations, territories and states all around the world, to express cultural, philosophical, social and aesthetic notions of island life. Past collaborations range from films to commercials. 


Dora Dias is a motion designer storyteller born in the South Bronx and raised by women from her family and her community who took turns to care for their children in between their shifts as seamstresses. Dora calls herself a modern seamstress who has replaced her ancestor’s scissors with editing software to stitch the narratives that she records and patches together with other mediums.


Dora and Bianka met in a production class where they create a TV show concept. Bianka - an experienced Salsa dancer, convinces Dora to use hours of interview footage that she has been collecting over the years to search for her father – a musician who abandoned the family to tour the world during the golden age of Salsa. The project gains popularity and the duo found Production Gurls to continue producing Salsa Stories.
