Naledi Media

Producer/Director for hire - please e-mail: info@naledimedia.com

In Sesotho, the language of the Southern African country Lesotho, naledi means star. I was born in Lesotho where I lived for 17 years. I have chosen Naledi Media as a reminder of my birth place and that ultimately my greatest inspiration comes from my life experience. I currently live in the San FranciscoBay Area. I am in the masters program of motion picture and television at the Academy of Art University. More details about my general work experience and my education can be reviewed on my resume.

Sankofa

This montage describes one of my primary goals as I begin a career in film, which is to reach back into my past and into the realm of my ancestors to retrieve stories that will help me light the stars in the African sky. The music is sampled from Mos Def and Talib Kewly's Black Star album.


Under One Sky

Here is short introductory video I produced for a camp in western North Carolina, that serves youth in foster care.


Scene from Sex, Lies, and Videotape

Check out this scene I produced and directed for class on directing actors. The class assignment was simply to direct a scene from Steven Sodaburgs Sex, Lies, and Videotape.


More Clips

Flight– a few shots of mountains in Spain, as seen from the window of an airplane, set to music
