Growing up as a biracial, bisexual woman in the Texas, I rarely felt like I saw myself represented in mainstream media. I remember a handful of times thinking, “Hey, she looks like me”, “You know, I completely relate to this character”. If they weren’t going to tell stories that represented myself and other marginalized groups,… Read More @Emilyreas: Why did you decide to get into this industry?
I mainly use instagram. You can find me at @li.ss.ette. That’s where I’ll post about new work. My next frontier is… yup —- TV (both in front of and behind the camera)! But I’m also staying open to magic because I’m waiting for @warnerbros to call me to direct Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.… Read More @li.ss.ette: Where can people find out more about you on social media? What is next for you in your career?
Okay don’t think I’m weird but a long time ago I saw an interview with @jenniferaniston (told you I watch a lot of tv) where she talked about having family and friends decorate her tree or something at her Christmas party and I thought that was such a brilliant idea. So ever since then I’ve… Read More @li.ss.ette: What, if anything, do you collect?
Make original commercially viable products and negotiate everything.
At an early friends and family screening of my first feature “Women is Losers” (feminist title, I promise) which is coming soon audience members were crying. After the screening a man came up to me and asked how he could be a better father to his daughter. I was standing there with my manger @agentchrislee… Read More @li.ss.ette: What is a successful moment in your career so far?
Probably cynicism. I’m not sure when it became uncool and childish to be enthusiastic about things but I hope that changes. Cynicism appears to rob its host of motivation. I worry about how much we can get accomplished as a generation if cynicism is the status quo.
Getting into @NYUTisch. That acceptance letter changed my life. It was a beautiful and traumatic four years. I learned how to be an artist but I also learned about politics. The latter lesson is probably what’s gotten me the furthest. Whatever combination it was, I was never the same after leaving Tisch.
I was a really shy, sickly kid and we didn’t have a lot of money. It was the perfect storm for the makings of a bookworm. I read EVERYTHING, but I also watched a TON of TV and movies @willsmith @freshprince gets a special shout out. As soon as I realized that the “miniature people”… Read More @li.ss.ette: Why did you decide to work in this industry?
You can find me at @kingviktoria on Instagram and on my website http://www.viktoriaivking.com. In terms of what’s next for my career, I’m prepping two projects right now: a Spanish language short, “Hermanas” and my third feature film, “The Alchemy of Solitude”. I’m also going to be releasing into the film festival circuit this month, three films… Read More @kingviktoria: What are you working on next? In addition, if people want to find out more about you, where can they find you on social media?
Haha, I collect quotes, stills from films that I use for inspiration AND travel souvenir shot glasses; so anytime I or someone close to me travels to a new country or city, I always want to get one from the gift shop as a token of my travels.
