So I went location scouting David Whitwell for a visual album we’re shooting later this month. I wanted to work on scale on this project, so I’m flexing some #photography skills too.
I shot and edited this piece a while back in March 2018 for Okay Player, but it never aired. Anyway, think of this video as a look at the other side of Jussie Smollett. The part that gravitates people to him.
So a couple of weeks ago, Elliot and I produced a #musicvideo for a dope af friend, fellow filmmaker and amazing singer @vonmiddleton for his song #putitonyou Making art with friends is always dope 🙏🏿 check out the full song by searching “Put it On You Von Middleton” on YouTube. 🎥 @clutchmastere 🎬 @paul.noticeaka @thenoticeblog
So it's been a while since I've posted videos consistently here. There's a reason. And it's personal. But I'm finally ready to talk about it.
Back in 2017, I recorded an interview with a good friend of mine, David Crownson who happens to also be the creator of Harriet Tubman : Demon Slayer. The interview lasted 4 hours - because we both have ADD and like to talk a lot. So I cut out the rabbit trails, and made a series out of it, called: "Brief Talks w/ David Crownson" Enjoy!

So it's been a while since I've posted any new stuff on this page, and that's because of a lot things. BUT. That period has ended, and now there'll be a ton more things flowing out way more often.

Recently, New York City has seen a growing number of stories related to gangs-related crimes. It’s sparked several projects aimed at ridding NYC of gangs for good. But… Who are the people the NYPD call gangsters? We take a look, with JustLeadership USA.
This is one of the very first doc series I created with Glenn Quentin. The Heights follows a group of black & latinx actors living in Washington Heights, who are also performing in the musical, “The Heights.”
I remember visibly shaking when I first heard Taylonn Murphy Sr. tell this story. The cruelty and lack of empathy involved in how the officer regarded the boy is exactly the sort of trauma over-policing invites into our neighborhoods.
Harriet. Tubman. Demon. SLAYER. 'Nuff said.
The Notice Blog is Coming Black! (..you gotta watch the video to get the joke.)

Check out some #BlackGirlMagic in Melissa Mickens’ “Shampagne.” I was privileged enough to edit their second season, and YOU, dear friend, must WATCH ALL OF IT!! (I don’t know why I’m screaming.)
A lot can be said in a picture.
I shoot photography and video for events. And often times, I learn something brilliant from my clients. Here’s one lesson on life..
This pretty much sums up 2017 for me. Love. Loss. And Lessons.
Stuff. You usually don't need it.
