JACOB A TAPIA

DIRECTOR, CINEMATOGRAPHER

Jacob A Tapia is a documentary filmmaker and CEO of Handrawn Pictures, LLC. Jacob's past documentaries include Cuatro Dias en Mexico, Entropy, sweet!, and The Brass Vanguard. During his 12 year career in the animation and production industry, Jacob has worked on projects for Life Technologies, Sanyo, The Travel Channel, and Southern California Edison. An inherently curious person, documentary films are Jacob's adult method of answering the "why" questions. Jacob believes that an open discussion is a means of change, and that is what attracted him to Citizens*. The opportunity to share, without a political agenda, the personal stories and facts of the illegal immigration discussion appealed to him immensely. Citizens* is Jacob's first feature length documentary.

JENNIFER Y TAPIA

PRODUCER, WRITER

Jennifer grew up listening to oral stories while with her family as they worked livestock. Loving a good story Jennifer began writing her own stories from her life experiences. Having worked with Jacob on a part time basis on two short documentaries, and after 15 years as a paralegal writing legal documents, Jennifer was excited to join her husband to help write and produce Citizens*. As undocumented immigrants were a part of the ranching community where Jennifer grew up, she looked forward to sharing insight on this subject. With her writing and organization skill sets, Jennifer is a highly motivated début producer sharing a story.
