Career

The first film Ramos-Chapman wrote and directed was the 2016 short And Nothing Happened. She used Kickstarter and worked several jobs to finance the film. The film, which she stars in, was inspired by her trauma in the aftermath of a sexual assault. She stated in an interview with Essence, "It is not only a thing one person survives–sexual assault is something a whole family, community, nation survives and until we understand that we cannot truly confront it. That is why I made And Nothing Happened."

In 2018, Ramos-Chapman wrote and directed Piu Piu, a "psycho surrealist" short that premiered at the 2018 BlackStar Film Festival. Piu Piu is loosely based on an experience Ramos-Chapman had being stalked by a stranger in public, while And Nothing Happened was inspired by her trauma in the aftermath of a sexual assault.
