Ericka Boston honed her sense of story for more than a decade as a multiplatform journalist. Specializing in entertainment and lifestyle content for websites and print magazines, she interviewed celebrities and experts and covered awards shows, White House events, tech toys and even theme parks for a multicultural audience of more than 1 million.
As a leader in her newsroom, Boston received a Knight Digital Media Center News Entrepreneur fellowship, and after launching a digital media company she found her way back to film, a passion she first discovered in college.
Boston directs, writes and produces. Most recently Boston produced “In the Age of Monsters,” a short film that’s garnered licensing interest from ShortsHD. Other credits include “Hustle vs. Heartache,” a feature film co-starring Vanessa Bell Calloway (“What’s Love Got to Do With It”) and Mo McRae (“Sons of Anarchy”). She’s studied directing with Sundance creative advisor Joan Darling, and this summer she’ll teach 360-degree VR filmmaking for a youth-focused nonprofit.
Boston has a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism and a graduate certificate in multimedia journalism, both from the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism.
