The above video still is from a recent ad for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission’s water conservation campaign. It may give the impression that actress Erin Tjoe is going to be ill, but in fact, she’s portraying a consumer who’s made aware of the value of saving water. The 30-second spot is one of a series of ads being put out by the SFPUC, that feature Erin.
Another of her recent projects is a short film produced by 99 Hearts, which, besides being the sole performer in, she co-produced. Shot mostly from the viewer’s point of view and without dialog, Erin is seen as an adventurous traveler who unexpectedly crosses paths with the viewer. However, they must part ways after a brief time together because, despite the chemistry between them and the connection they feel, they have lives in different parts of the world.
Erin’s hosting credits include the travel show Green Travel Destination, and Black Tree TV, where she’s hosted their Hollywood Talk segment and covered events for them such as the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and LA Fashion Week. Oh, and she also made a great Asian Little Red Riding Hood, who avoided the Big Bad Wolf by using her Motorola Droid RAZR M to find an alternative route to Grandma’s house.
