I love the entire creative process. And I believe most of my work reflects that. Throughout it all, I've had a hand in producing, acting, directing, editing, sound-mixing, lighting, motion graphics, and of course, videography. And no genre is off limits; from reality tv, to news, concerts, scripted pilots, commercials, red carpet events, to online entertainment... you name it. I've done it. And can do it.
But if I had to choose only one aspect of it all, it would have to be when the cameras roll. Nothing beats capturing the "magic"...AS it happens. Go 'head. See for yourself.
During the summer of 2013, I had the honor and privilege of fulfilling a dream to shoot a short film with two good friends of mine. One, a very talented up-and-coming actress with whom I had a chance meeting several years prior. And the other, an equally talented writer with whom I shared workspace at a previous 9-to-5. Together we birthed "Troubled Man", a 5-minute narrative tackling marital strife, on which I worked as both DP and editor. Aside from its 3rd place finish for the 2013 Urban Mediamakers Best Shorty Short, it also managed to garner an Audience Award nomination.
Also... check out AT THE CHANNEL, a blog show I created, produce, write, direct, shoot, (and yes, edit) featuring stories, content, and events from across the African diaspora.
This was an enjoyable collaboration with a dear friend over at Arion DMG. Task? Create a tense and dramatic teaser for a web series in development ... then follow it up with a fun and relaxed pitch video for potential crowdfunding investors.
Here I had the distinct pleasure of capturing an extraordinary book signing event featuring the incomparable Mr. Russell Simmons and his book, 'The Happy Vegan'!
Both were 'served up' along side celebrity supporters and tasty vegan dishes, compliments of the '2 Good Veggie Kitchen' in North Hollywood California.
