Javier Chapa got the film bug in the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M where he was asked to train "military extras" on Ed Zwick's Gulf War action-drama, Courage Under Fire. This experience inspired Chapa to move to Los Angeles after graduating from law school, where he persisted in search of projects which would both draw on his personal experiences and showcase rich Latino culture. Made for $25k, Chapa’s debut feature film, Harvest of Redemption, a true story and bilingual depiction of the struggle of Migrant Farm Workers, won Best Foreign Drama at the 2007 International Family Film Festival sponsored by Warner Bros. and Dreamworks.
In August of 2010, Chapa was chosen to be a part of the prestigious DGA/DISNEY-ABC Directing Fellowship where for two years he worked on shows such as Grey’s Anatomy and Castle. Since then he has produced a handful of independent films and his company recently secured the life rights to Jenni Rivera’s incredible and timely true story, which his company is co-producing with Donald De Line and is being penned by Kate Lanier.
