JORDAN CRAFTON

Crafton is a 26 year old filmmaker based out of Northern New Jersey. He is a native of Long Island, NY and credits much of his creative passion to his upbringing in Baldwin."Long Island is like the underdog of NY," Crafton says as he begins to describe the background of his work ethic. Filmmaking was not always his dream however, he first aspired to be a jazz musician and studied the alto saxophone for 13 years. Later in his life, he soon realized that music alone was not a strong enough agent to tell the stories that he always dreamed of. Partnering with a childhood friend, Tyrell Spencer, they began working on their first film My Block: Strong Island in 2007. Unfortunately, a few months after their largest screening to an audience of 400 people in 2009, Tyrell lost his life in a fatal car accident car pooling home for Thanksgiving from Suny Potsdam. Since his passing, Crafton has dedicated the rest of his life to finishing the dream that they both started.

Crafton was featured as the "Artist of the Month" in 2011 on NickCannon.com and soon joined his production company NCredible in the Summer of 2012. Professionally he is the Director of Photography and Editor on the Teen Nick Top10 Countdown and was the Assistant Director and Production Manager on Mariah Carey's music video for the remix of her song #Beautiful with Young Jeezy. He spent three years as the videographer and editor for celebriy hairstylist, Terrence Davidson, who has styled the likes of Nicki Minaj, Patti LaBelle, Jennifer Hudson, etc.
