Based in Portland, OR, Alberta Poon is a Chinese-American writer and director. The creative aura surrounding her work emanates from years of fronting musical acts, developing shorts for her comedic web series Scorpiono, and her obsession with color and symmetry. Fond of mixing genres, Alberta’s work presents surreal worlds counterbalancing the juxtaposition of humor and melancholy. Her eye for detail and ability to bring out the best of her subjects are key elements of her work -- whether she is directing live action or developing stories in post. On principle, Alberta strives for diversity and the incorporation of powerful female characters to tell their exceptional stories. A common thread that ties her work together is inclusivity within underrepresented communities, both in front and behind the camera.
Alberta is the founder of Nocturnal Uniform Productions.
