Eugenia Renteria is a Watsonville-based director, cinematographer and editor. Born and raised in a rural community in Zacatecas, Mexico she moved to California when she was 12 years old and that’s when her interest in filmmaking started. She attended CSU Monterey Bay and graduated with a B.A. in Cinematic Arts & Technology. Currently, Eugenia produces video stories for her production company, Inspira Studios, and teaches youth all aspects of filmmaking.
“I am excited to be back at this year’s Youth Media Academy. As an instructor I will have the opportunity to share my storytelling skills with others and I hope I can be a positive role model to our youth. I can’t wait to see the films we’ll create this summer.”
