Career

Robinson has directed an award winning short film D.E.B.S. (2003 film) and a feature length film D.E.B.S. (2004 film). In the feature length film, Robinson centers the film around the young lesbian relationship of characters Amy and Lucy. In the undercover spy film, several of the teenage girls depicted are either lesbian or bisexual, and those sexual orientations are central to the film. Amy, played by actress Sara Foster, is the pride and joy of her all-female teenage spy school, because she is the first ever to achieve the perfect score in the secret spy test hidden in her SATs. Her sweet demeanor catches the attention of bad girl Lucy Diamond, played by Jordana Brewster, who sets her sights on seducing Amy while striving for world domination. Although some feared that producers would pressure Robinson into downplaying the lesbian aspects of the film, Robinson later indicated that she received full support, and that the lesbian relationship between Amy and Lucy remained intact. Robinson said "If anything, we worked together on the script to make the relationship more complex and intimate".[2]

In 2007, Robinson created the online series Girltrash! which resides on www.ourchart.com, an online offshoot of the television series, The L Word.[3]

In addition to her film and TV work, Robinson is also currently the writing the first four issues of the Web ongoing series at DC Comics.

She is not to be confused with Angela Terry Robinson, who is also a filmmaker and motion picture editor.
