About Me

Filmmaker. Documentarian. 

Award winning filmmaker, William Feagins, Jr. was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He first discovered his love for film while studying at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, where he was able to create music videos for local hip hop artists as his school projects. In 2006, William filmed & directed his first documentary, “The Art of Life,” for independent hip-hop artist, ChaRon Don. Soon after, William relocated to Atlanta, it’s rich arts and music scene made it a perfect place for him to create and grow as an artist.

 

Feagins’ cinematography and direction often reflects the realness of the subject matter. His passion for film and hip hop has inspired his love for film, but his extensive portfolio has matured into documentaries that beautifully chronicle the complexities of the human experience through the lens of Black and Brown people. Feagins’ unique style continues to evolve as he finds more beautiful and innovative ways to tell a story.
