About Erica

I first learned video production as a high school student in Oakland, CA. I worked my way through a TV station internship at 14 years-old and was handpicked for a specialized after-school video/audio program for Oakland Youth called "Youth Sounds" (now a part of Bay Area Video Coalition in San Francisco). Through "Youth Sounds," my mentors encouraged me to direct my first film - which was accepted into 40 film festivals across the country including winning the Golden Gate award at the San Francisco International Film Festival. With my cash prize, I purchased my own video and sound equipment and built my company from there.

After I graduated high school, I studied Cinema at San Francisco State University, but I found that most of the lessons I learned were from actually creating my own content. There are a few things lacking in film lessons in high school and on the college level, so I recently decided to come back to my High School, where it all began, and teach high school students film production exercises.


I specialize in Music Video and Short Film productions. I enjoy rhythmic editing, and a more abstract / creative approach to narratives. A big part of executing a project - whether it's a short, music video, or documentary - is the writing. I want to help show students how to write concepts they can shoot themselves. Then, we can get to the fun part of shooting and editing!
