The Art of Organized Noize

I worked as one of the DP’s on this project. We shot primarily on a RED EPIC MX and RED EPIC DRAGON. There were accessions we shot on a GH4. Working with Windsong Productions on this feature was a pleasure to do such good work.

Produced By Windsong Producitons in association with Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment, “The Art of Organized Noize” charts the rise and fall of legendary hip-hop and R&B producers Organized Noize. Filmed on location in Atlanta, Oakland and Los Angeles, the documentary features interviews with some of the biggest names in the recording industry: Andre 3000, Puff Daddy, Future, Ludacris, L.A. Reid, 2 Chainz, CeeLo and more. It tells the story of Organized Noize, a producing trio responsible for the careers of such breakout hip-hop stars as Outkast, CeeLo, and the Goodie Mob. Their distinct sound also translated into popular music, producing hit records for TLC, Brandy and En Vogue, among others.

The film was directed by music producer Quincy “QD3” Jones III and written, produced and edited by Windsong’s Joshua Krause. Windsong also contributed principal cinematography, color grading and other post-production.

The film premieres at the SXSW Film Festival on March 15, 2016. It will be available to stream on Netflix beginning March 22, 2016. Check out the trailer above.
