We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiffany Frances and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tiffany, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I’m extremely passionate about filmmaking and being creative; it’s not the easiest road choosing it as a career, but it’s also my dream to make a living doing what I love… so ultimately I had no choice but to pursue this 🙂
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m a Taiwanese American Director and Writer of narrative films, commercials, and music videos. It took me a long time to get to where I am today, but I am always consistently chipping at it, setting short term and long term goals for myself. You know, after years and years of that you’re always bound to get somewhere! Filmmaking is a naturally challenging career because every project is different and you’re always learning, but I see this as a good thing – it’s important for me to always keep growing.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If a good friend was visiting LA, I would take them to a beach campsite or getaway to Joshua Tree for a few days. The rest of the time, go surf or a long hike during the day, then at night a delicious meal followed by a show or cute bar to hang after. I’d also make them dinner and relax in my backyard and introduce them to all my good friends, who I love and think should all know each other.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My family – mom, grandma, Yolanda Huang, Gary Suyemoto, Jenny Huang, Peter Park. My close friends who’ve supported me in my journey all the way! Ian Kammer, Grace Poole, Noah Poole, Kevin Berlandi, Angela Chen, Alice Park, Erica Eng, and Stine Moisen. AFI DWW sisters: Nikki Taylor Roberts, Ashley Eakins, Bridget Moloney, Lara Panah Izadi, Robin Cloud, and Mari Jamora.
