In 2019 she launched PURPOSE Productions as President & Founder and funded her first short film, BXAUTIFUL NIGHTMARX, as Executive Producer.
Starring as the lead in the film, she was recognized by Actors Awards in Los Angeles as a TOP 15 FINALIST for BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE FEST and ultimately awarded BEST ACTRESS with a stellar performance review:
"In BXAUTIFUL NIGHTMARX, Juanita Ingram plays Trina, Derrick's ex-wife. She is determined to get back into Derrick's life, no matter what it takes. Juanita's performance is impressive throughout- she created a rounded character who can be powerful, manipulative and unhinged at the same time. Trina's chemistry with Derrick (wonderfully portrayed by Edward Williams III) is near perfect- both characters help each other keep the tension high from the first scene."
