•March 17, 2010 • 1 Comment

Hello!

I’m a talented and professional music video director, shooter, editor
and special fx artist aka ‘preditor.’

Check out my most recent music videos @

Georgia Anne Muldrow’s “Roses” featured on Mos Def’s Grammy Nominated album ‘Ecstatic’


Dudley Perkins’ “The God”
, produced by Georgia Anne Muldrow

Lighting never presents an obstacle! Fashion!
You shoot, I embellish! ;)

Humor! Timing!
“Gotta Be” by Chelsea

I’ve edited political documentaries, music videos for the
industry’s top artists, video arts, celebrity news, you name it!

Check out a cool commercial I created in for Riunite wine:

You can find more of my work at http://www.vimeo.com/ogechi

Please take a look at a reel of my video art. These are images that I made for my masters thesis and they are very close to my heart.
Out of all the things I do with video, I truly consider editing my medium. Simply piecing together images, frame by frame, has the power to sets the mood and tells the story. It’s actually something I’m very passionate about. We could discuss this at length.

I am great finding the story while working independently AND sitting with a director and taking direction! ;)

Please give me a call at 412-551-6707

Let’s discuss rates!

Thanks for your time.
My resume is below.

Sincerely,
Ogechi Chieke

Artist Statement 2007

•February 25, 2010 • 2 Comments

I decided to play a little Sankofa* today.
This pretty much sums up my feelings from Spring ’07 when I first moved westward.
I was an artist searching through history, medium, culture, technology, and representation.
Proud to say, not much has changed on that artistic front because I see that as a strength and a creative wellspring for all my endeavors. ;)
I’m a work in progress.
Moving forward in 2010.
Grow with me on the blog, baby.

*’Sankofa’ is an Akan word that means, “We must go back and reclaim our past so we can move forward;in order to enable us to understand why and how we came to be who we are today.”
