JJ Augustavo has garnered worldwide acclaim for his music videos for Macklemore, Jay
Park, Mike Posner, and Schoolboy Q, that together have been viewed billions of times
globally. He has directed commercials for Puma and Adidas and his narrative films have
premiered at Sundance. His cinematic style is raw, honest, and defined by a respect for
his subjects and their stories. Beautiful and heartbreaking, his films show humanity
without the makeup.
JJ was born in Seattle, Washington, a city that figures prominently in his work. His
parents, an artist and a florist, gave him an insatiable artistic curiosity and keen eye for
beauty. From the moment a camera found its way into JJ’s hands, he knew that he had
found his calling. Filmmaking not only allowed JJ to capture the world around him, but it
allowed him to create worlds of his own. Since becoming a director JJ has received
numerous accolades for his work including six nominations and three wins for best
cinematography, best hip hop video of the year, and best video with a social message at
the 2013 MTV Music Video Awards.
His short film, “Just a Kid from Seattle” has been premiered in the 2018 Sundance film
festival and the Los Angeles Asian Pacific film festival. .
曾與Macklemore, Jay Park, Mike Posner, 以及Schoolboy Q等知名音樂人合作；所有作品在全球加起來的播放總和逼近數億，為他囊括了多項提名以及3次得獎的輝煌紀錄。
經過多方磨練後，將觸角伸及敘事作品的他，第一部短片『Just A Kid From Seattle』即在日舞影展、以及洛杉磯亞太影展獲得放映。
JJ 蓄勢待發的耀眼能量，指日可待。 .
