In 2013, Pedraza wrote, produced and helped cast two short films, "Love Death" which was the first vehicle for his "Jude Quinn" character. The short was produced along with a trailer for the full Film.

The next film he wrote and helped produce was a sports drama/Female coming of age film starring Jesse Borrego (Blood in Blood Out, Fame, Con Air) entitled "Duque." a sizzle reel was created for this film which you can view on this site.
