Based in Los Angeles, Alberta Poon is a first-generation Chinese American director and screenwriter known for her comedic flair, surreal-like imagery, and fondness for vibrant punches of color—creating bold worlds that embody beauty and humor in a playful and refreshing light. Alberta’s work explores the themes of the Asian-American diaspora experience using her comedic superpowers to capture people’s attention and imagination.
Her multifaceted background as a musician, editor, and videographer fosters a rich and collaborative environment in addition to influencing the rhythm and emotion behind her storytelling. A common thread that ties her work together is inclusivity within underrepresented communities, both in front of and behind the camera.
Alberta’s films have screened in the Bend Film Festival, Tacoma Film Festival, SPLIFF, Pérez Art Museum Miami and have been featured in Vogue, RollingStone, and Broccoli Magazine. Her commercial directing work includes campaigns for Nike, Sapporo, TikTok, WWE 2K, Adidas, and Society Nine which have been featured by Ads of the World, Campaign US, and Free the Work.
She is currently working with showrunner Kelly Galuska (Netflix’s Human Resources) on a new pilot through the Mentorship Matters TV writing program and also managed to snag a coveted spot in Amy Aniobi’s (EP on HBO’s Insecure) TRIBE fellowship.
She is available for hire as a freelance director or screenwriter.
