Recently, a huge moment for me was being selected in a film festival for best cinematography. Did I win? Nope! But realizing that my work was selected amongst the top 5 in an international competition was eye-opening for me. It was one of those, “I might be on to something here” feelings.
As a kid, I was a BIG daydreamer! I distinctly remember during day trips with my mom, I would sit in the back seat of the car, stare blankly out the window and make up stories to whatever song she was playing at the time. Like imaginary music videos, I’d replay them over and over… Read More @Jessicatolliver_DP: Why did you decide to get into this industry?
They can follow me on IG @starvictoriadirector. Twitter @starvictoria although I don’t tweet too much. That’s pretty much it.

I collect books and gems. I’ve always wanted a big library in my house that’s several stories high with the ladder that rolls across the bookshelves. And I love gems because I’ve always been a believer of the metaphysical, astrology, and energy.

Being the assistant director on A student Academy Award winning film, winning a gold Telly Award for my thesis film La Ruta, being in the Ryan Murphy director shadowing… Read More @starvictoriadirector: What is a successful moment in your career so far?
My biggest concern with the future really doesn’t have much to do with my career, because if I keep hustling eventually something good will come of it.

We need to find a… Read More @starvictoriadirector: What is your biggest concern with the future?
A defining moment in my life occurred when I walked across the stage to get my Masters Degree from the University of Southern California School of cinematic arts. As they say, I did that! Getting my education was challenging. I lost a lot of friends and romantic relationships because of it. I am very focused… Read More @starvictoriadirector: What’s a defining moment in your life?
I am so humbled and excited to share a 5-part series with Cynthia Bemis Abrams and “Advanced TV Herstory”. Because Cynthia says it so much better than I can: “Sometimes we lose sight of the adage “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” Since lockdown I’ve connected with people and organizations that… Read More 5-Part Podcast Series with “Advanced TV Herstory”
I’ve always been a lover of movies since I was a kid. I knew when I was 13 years old, I wanted to work in the film / television industry. I thought acting was the only way to do that as there was very little representation behind the camera for minorities.
