WHO IS MICHAEL ARTIS?
My directing career started when I was in high school. I use to film scenes in my neighborhood like tricked-out cars and everybody would want to come rap on camera. That led to me shooting my first music video for Hezeleo (UGK Records). He introduced me to Mr. Boomtown and various Houston artists and it all started from there…
I am a hands on director. From lighting, to dp (director of photography), to editing…I like to do it all and I love every aspect of the process. Even when I have a full crew, you can catch me unloading and loading grip trucks.
My ultimate goal is for #MAF to be labeled as a power-production company, and for Michael Artis to be revered as much more than just as a music video director. I look forward to shooting commercials, movies, and anything I can put my eye to and give the most creative visual possible.
