“I grew up in the television industry in Mexico and decided to pursue a career in film. I knew I wanted to tell stories,” says Ms. Trujillo, Founder of Brave New Generation, a production studio in Los Angeles.
After working in the industry for a while in her native country, Ms. Trujillo moved to Vancouver for her education. She eventually relocated to Los Angeles where she continued to pursue her education and make important connections that helped get her career established.

Last year, Ms. Trujillo founded her studio. Brave New Generation produces video featuring original content as well as the work of other companies. “We do a bit of everything, television, film and web series,” she says. As Producer, she is responsible for budgets, finding talent, building relationships and managing crews and teams of creative individuals involved in the films. She is particularly interested in discovering and encouraging new film makers. “We want to build a platform for new filmmakers and other creative people. It’s a hard industry to get into. At Brave New Generation, we want to give them the ability to put their work out there,” says Ms. Trujillo.
