Cliff Charles of The People's DP who shot “When the Levees Broke” as well as Pete Chatmon's new documentary "761st". Apart from collaborating with Spike Lee on several projects, Cliff has shot dozens of music videos and concerts with artists such as Mos Def, R&B singer Joe, Fabolous, and Young Jeezy. His work has been featured on HBO, MTV, BET, and on big screens everywhere. His latest venture is an educational site for cinematographers called TPDP.TV. We’ll discuss style, camera choice, crew and more! Next on deck, is one of the hottest up and coming music video directors you’ve never heard of until now…Benjamin Ahr Harrison. Through his Brooklyn-based production company, Machine Man Inc., Ben has directed music videos by major and indie label artists such as Jake Lefco, Unconscious Logic, and two videos for artist A-Pinks that have gotten more than a million YouTube views each. His rare full package skills as a director, shooter, editor, visual FX artist, and animator have allowed him to consistently maximize production value and creativity on limited budgets.
