That one time I got over 4 million views for OkayAfrica in a video that took me less than a day to edit. Just goes to show you how random life is.
Here’s a video I shot and edited for Okay Africa back in 2016.
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 remember spending damn near 3,100 gourdes ($36.35 USD) trying to get my homie @filsjnlouis just ONE solar lamp back in #haiti yet over in the states? It’s just ONE DOLLAR - even sending the lights back over to my homie is nearly impossible and costs more than the product itself.
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.
So shot, directed, edited and produced this music video for local Newark Hip Hop phenom, J Read. You can find the track, "Everything," on his EP titled "The Grim Wolf Sessions"
It was a joy to work with so many talented people, and on such a dope song!
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.
“Never one to shy away from controversy, Dawkins’ conclusion ruffled feathers to say the least, with patriotic Brits accusing him of insensitivity towards veterans, diehard atheists accusing him of changing course.”

An ode to the First Free Republic.
I shot this photo series, while filming an untitled Sci Fi Thriller out in Haiti. I rarely try to center cis male perspectives, but in this series, I wanted to capture feelings of family, isolation and restlessness we all felt as Black men during this process. It was something I felt ought to be captured in some way. I dunno, I’ll write more on it later, once everything’s processed.
This was one of my very first attempts at making a show that combined sociological topics in pop culture back in 2015

Way to way back. DC's history with skating.
There were countless moments captured behind the lens during this documentary. Take a look at the photography from the very first days of the documentary.
So, I'm looking for new clients. If you know anyone that's looking for an Emmy Award-Winning Video Editor, comment below, or just email me at: Paul@TheNoticeBlog.com
Midterm Elections are here! Don't forget to #Vote I jumped back into my archives, pulled up some old clips, tossed them with some new. I dunno what I'm saying, just watch the video ...and vote!
