Pittsburgh native, William Feagins, Jr., is a full-time graphic designer and part-time videographer/filmmaker. His passion for both was ignited while enrolled in the Art of Pittsburgh's Music & Video Business course. After graduating he pursued a career in graphic design and put his interest in film on hold until over a decade later when he directed his first documentary, "The Art of Life" for ChaRon Don, a friend and independent hip-hop artist. In 2009, William relocated to Atlanta where he became more active in video production filming and directing music videos for various local hip-hop acts.
In 2012 his mini-documentary, "Underexposed: Indie Hip-Hop in Atlanta," which highlighted the diversity of Atlanta's hip-hop scene, won the "Viewer's Choice and Critic's Choice" awards in the Creative Loafing Short Cuts Contest. Another mini-documentary, "Change In The Game" was commissioned by the 2012 A3C Hip-Hop Festival where it premiered for their first annual film festival. It also aired on Atlanta's PBS station, PBA30. His most recent film, "Divided Time" has been screened at over a dozen film festivals throughout the country and won several awards along the way.
