About Me

Filmmaker. Documentarian. 

W. Feagins Jr. is an award-winning filmmaker and director. The Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native cultivated an interest in film when he enrolled in a music and video course while attending the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. He moved to Atlanta in 2009. In 2012, he won the Creative Loafing Atlanta, ATL Short Cuts Short Film Contest as both the Critics’ Choice and Viewers’ Choice for the film UNDEREXPOSED: Indie Hip-Hop in Atlanta. Later that year, the A3C Hip-Hop Festival commissioned him to create the short film, Change in the Game, chronicling the development of hip-hop culture, for the first-ever Hip Hop Film Festival held in conjunction with the Atlanta Film Festival. His 2014 film, Divided Time, about the ways that hip-hop artists and producers balance artistry with family life, has earned five awards, including Best Documentary and Best Documentary, Short. The 2017 film, The Possibility of Her, about women’s roles in traditionally male-dominated careers, continues to gain traction, winning awards and regular requests for presentation in local and national screenings.
