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.
