David Blue Garcia Bio
David is an Emmy award-winning Director / DP based in Austin, Texas. His directorial debut, TEJANO (2018), was acquired by HBO and released on its television and digital platforms in 2020. In 2020 David directed THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE for Legendary Pictures and is currently in post production.
David was born and raised on the South Texas border. He caught the filmmaking bug at a young age when he discovered the family VHS camera and began directing his little brother in homemade action movies.
He attended film school at the University of Texas (’06) and remained in Austin to cut his teeth as a DP in the independent film scene where he lensed 6 feature films and has shot & directed everything from national TV spots to hundreds of product and branded content commercials in over a dozen countries on five continents for clients such as Verizon, Dell, Lenovo, Fisher Price, Air Hogs, T Mobile, Google and Firestone to name a few.
In 2015, David pursued a project that would both draw on his personal experience and showcase the rich Latinx culture of South Texas. Inspired by Texas filmmaking legend, Robert Rodriguez, he returned to his hometown with a crew of 8 to direct his debut feature film, TEJANO, an action-thriller about a young Texan’s desperate deal with a drug cartel. Shot for 58k, David personally storyboarded every action / suspense sequence in the film in order to make his tight 23 day shooting schedule. www.tejanomovie.com
David’s next project is a dystopian science fiction film that deals with borders of a different kind which he hopes to shoot in 2021.
