About

Raised in the cultural melting pot of Miami, director Gil Green encompasses a vast knowledge of music and sports that transcends into a world of stylistic images. Gil’s first glimpse into the music business stemmed through the underground Hip Hop world as a DJ, who sold mix tapes by day and hosted warehouse parties at night. Gil’s passion for music and film evolved as he submitted short films instead of book reports, engaging his classmates as an early audience. He continued to pursue an education in film at the prestigious New York University (NYU).   At the age of 19, Gil’s NYU thesis project included creating and directing a music video. Inspired and persistent, Gil sold his car and took out $5,000 in student loans to cover production costs. His Hip Hop group, Backlive, headlined the video gaining national media recognition on music television channels such as MTV and BET.   Life experiences and exposure to various sub-cultures, give Gil his authenticity and creative edge. “I’m all about telling stories … music videos are mini-movies to me.” From a Jamaican sound clash that ended with a gunshot or a Dirty South Miami party where sweat dripped off the walls, Gil’s personal life indoctrinated him into the height of the scene. Authenticity excelled Gil’s videos to break both Dirty South and Dance Hall music onto an international level.
