THE HOOK-UP is a video PSA that I had the honor of working on with a few other talented men of color. The Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC) put an ad out looking for brothas to create a Public Service Announcement, and at the same time, learn the art of videomaking. I'm proud to have been in the very firstl workshop of RAWCUT PRODUCTIONS, with a group of talented brothas: Nathan 7 Scott, William Harmon, and Stefan Tonio. Collectively, we came up with the theme, concept, set design, editing, and each of us served as directors and camera men for our scenes. I shot and directed the first scene where the guy was hooking up on the computer. I tend to like moody images, so to create the mood, I chose to shoot this scene with only the light from the computer scene. :-)
