Jeff "Silence" Arthur
Educator, Artist, Photographer and Director. The self-taught artist began directing videos out of necessity- to marry visuals to his own music. However, it wasn't long before Jeff also became enamored with film making. Armed with the inherent storytelling nature of hip hop music and a rediscovered passion for photography, his narrative and branding videos began taking on a life of their own. He has been producing thought provoking work for 7 years. Jeff's approaches the work- whether it's branding, event or film projects- by placing MESSAGE and ART at the forefront to create the most compelling results.
Jeff also works with inner city youth to develop their creative media skills. A key concern of his is to make sure that underserved young people not only have opportunities in technology and the creative arts but that ultimately they feel empowered to design their own futures.
