Q: When did you found True Form Films and what was your motivation behind opening the company?
When I went to Sundance Film Festival for the first time in 2006…The film Quinceañera won both the Audience and Jury Awards. I was blessed to have been sitting next to my then good friend Jesse Garcia. He and the filmmakers got up to receive their awards. It was soooo inspiring to see a Latinx film win that year. To my surprise, it wasn’t written, produced or directed by Latinos. I knew I needed to step up as an actress and become a filmmaker. I have so many stories in me that I want to tell. So, when I returned from Sundance Film Festival, a month later TRUE FORM FILMS Inc. was created. Since then TFF has produced many award winning films, web-series & documentaries.
Q: What kind of films does True Form Films Produce?
We have produced all genres, we love creating social impact and inspirational stories. For example, our first feature film, AFTER SCHOOL can be seen in the Spanish cable channel Cine Latino. A story about a boy being abused at home and how we, as a community, have the responsibility to protect our children. We believe it takes a village to raise a child. As well as to make a movie.
Q: Yeniffer and Mauricio, you are both multi-talented in the industry, and you are also generous in helping actors get the most exclusive services that actually help them rise in their careers. Can you give us some more detail about this and success stories?
