Today we’d like to introduce you to Rebecca Hormozi.
Hi Rebecca, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
The easiest way to walk you through my story is to start from the very beginning. On September 17, 2001, I was born in the City of Angels. One of my core childhood memories was visiting Universal Studios and going on the World-Famous Studio Tour. Ever since then I have always been intrigued to see how you can work together with others and bring stories to life. However, at the age of 8, my family and I packed our bags and moved across the country to live in New Jersey. You might be wondering why and it’s because I was a military brat. Anyways, I always had an eye for beautiful shots and visuals. My parents eventually got me a camera and I just took as many pictures and videos as I could. I would have photoshoots with friends and make videos of our adventures. I can still remember making my first ever video on iMovie to a Drake-type beat on Soundcloud. It was horrible, to say the least, but I still applaud my younger self because I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t done that. Once I got older, I attended a technical high school where I then got certified in Television, Video, and Digital Media Productions. Although I learned a lot, I decided to continue my education in Florida. Today, I am a Full Sail Alumni who has grown tremendously in her craft. I now own my own company, Supreme Soul Films, where I get to make all kinds of creative content for individuals and company brands. I’m so blessed to be where I am today and to work with so many talented people. I still have a lot to learn, and I’m excited for the opportunities that I currently have and are coming my way.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Has my journey been a smooth road? Certainly not. But how else would I have learned what I know today if it weren’t for the small bumps on the road? Being in an industry like this you run into a variety of roadblocks throughout your career, such as having a drive fail and losing all your progress to forgetting an extra battery on shoot day. Or bigger blocks like even being discriminated because of your ethnicity, appearance, and/or gender. These are all things I and many have to deal with which is why I’m striving to work with more diverse and female creators. Being in a male dominant industry is not easy, but every mistake I make or curves balls that someone else throws at me just turns into a beautiful lesson. One of the biggest things I have learned is that no matter what everyone is going to have an opinion about anything you or I do but you are in control on whether you let it affect you or not. What others say speaks more about them than you.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
When people ask me what I do many words come to mind; I’m a Video Director, Cinematographer Photographer, and Editor. I think the simplest way to describe myself is by saying I’m a Multi-Media Artist. I design, direct, shoot, and edit all kinds of creative content surrounding brands, companies, and individuals; however my main focus is around the music industry. My work centers around music videos, album covers, and photo edits. I have also covered live performances, sports, events, commercials, and real estate content. When I ask others what they most know me for they almost always talk about my ability to correctly connect the visual to the music. They also mention the creativity I have in my editing style, such as creating Mura Masses which are most known as gifs/moving pictures. I grew up culturally diverse and had the privilege to travel a lot my whole life. I truly believe that because of that, and because I am a female, I bring a super unique and diverse perspective to every project. I’m very proud of how much I’ve grown as an artist and business owner and grateful for the amazing experiences and people I’ve met throughout the process.
What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
I moved to Florida in late 2019, and already within the first couple months of living here, I discovered so many beautiful places. I love that I have access to everything from theme parks to beaches and springs and even to the city. There are so many gorgeous parks, museums, and stores nearby as well. Winter Park is one of my favorite places to get lunch and shop! Another thing I enjoy about this city is the diversity we have and the art scene. I have attended so many events and shows since I have lived here, but I think we still need to continue building the art community and find ways to help others in the city become a part of it. One of my goals is to build a community full of all different kinds of creatives that work together and teach others our craft.
