Director Biography - Eva Rivera-Ferrell

Born in Honolulu Hawaii, this mixed beauty grew up in a military environment. Her parents were Marines and she lived all over the United States. She had a close relationship with her brother, Anthony growing up and they are still really close. Eva started acting when she was 3 and modeling when she was 15. When she graduated from high school, she went to college for a year and decided to join the Air Force. She married her wonderful husband, had 2 beautiful kids, received 2 degrees, and traveled the world. She also was able to model, act, & host on the side. Eva decided to end her military career while stationed in Tokyo, Japan. She started getting back into acting and fell in love with photography and music. Then one day while on a film set, she told herself "I would love to be a filmmaker one day". Not only did she want to write films, she wanted to direct and produce them as well.

That takes us to the present. She decided to make that dream come true (with the birth of Eva Rivera-Ferrell Productions) and found a group of people that truly believes in what she does. She has only done short films, but she is in the process of writing a feature film and will have more information in 2015. She appreciates the love and support that everyone has shown and can't wait for the world to see what she is truly capable of!

Director Statement

I also wrote this film and so my main focus was to make sure what I wrote came to life. I wanted to bring a sense of the saying "Things aren't always what they seem" to the table. In life in general, many people wear masks and use it to hide who they really are. Most of the time you can't tell what inner demons a person has inside. They could appear to be one way on the outside, but actually be a complete different person.

I started bringing that to life with my main character, Natasha. Natasha really is a sweet person as she is portrayed in the film, but she doesn't know the truth about the other characters in the film. She gets a sense in different moments that something isn't right, but is blind to the fact for the most part.

I knew from the start that I wanted this film to be a thriller. Thriller/horror films are my favorite type of films to watch and write. I just love the idea of being taken on a ride and not knowing what's going to happen next and I love even more the fact that someone could get butterflies while watching. Films that keep me on the edge of my seat are so much fun. I can't wait for people to see the emotions that Natasha goes through, while being kept on the edge of their seats.
