- ABOUT ME -
Erica is a Los Angeles based independent director whose work has been showcased in Oscar-qualifying festivals such as the Atlanta Film Festival and the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. Most recently, out of 400 applicants, Erica became one out of six fellows handpicked for the 2018 Commercial Directors Diversity Program - a fellowship created by the Association of Independent Commercial Producers and Directors Guild of America. She was also chosen for SHOOT Magazine's 16th Annual New Director's Showcase, where her film "POISON" was screened at the Directors Guild Theatre in New York.
Inspired by her Oakland roots, Erica aims to create work that reflects the diverse community in which she grew up. Her background in cinematography, and love of art, influences her rich cinematic style. With poetic imagery, Erica finds beauty within the grit – creating raw stories with complex characters, utilizing dramatic visuals and rhythmic editing to provoke an emotional response.
