DIRECTOR BALDWIN

About Me

"Direct yet conceptual. Provocative and visceral. I offer design & artistic direction for brands, stories, and people."

My Work

Encompasses many different art forms and spans various mediums, from film to print , I strive to make creative choices that pose questions and will impact society in a positive way.

This has taken the form of various digital and print pieces, ranging from film tv, social content, and brand design. My work is visceral and technical but most of all, flexible.

Biography

Hey! I am a storyteller, coffee lover and tech enthusiast and I’ve always had a proclivity to create things for people to experience. 

Along my journey I interned for a Netflix series which turned into my first full-time filmmaking job and since then I’ve held many roles in production and creative teams. I treat every experience as an opportunity to unlock another part of myself. 

I’ve continued to build and pursue opportunities to generate content that asks questions, encourage visceral cinematic experiences and gives the audience some form of nonlinear or pre-determined thought. 

I feel like if after you’ve watched anything I’ve written, creatively produced or directed and you don’t have a fascination with the motif, the world or characters in it, then I did not do an adequate job at delivering an experience. My goal as a visual artist is to continue to find ways to push the boundaries, and for 2023, and on how to be a visionary artist of color.
