By Derrius Edwards – @rawcommnc
Outstanding, marvelous, superb, are all synonymous to the word super. However, stoic is the one word that effortlessly defines the peculiar story of Supa Dupaa .
“Like, I started out with a Panasonic and a Mac. Now I have a RED cam and I’m premiering videos on TV, with no school.” — Supa
This self-taught cinematographer started at the bottom, literally got it out the mud as some people would say. Through hard-work and dedication, Supa has developed working relationships within the music industry and continuously works as if he has just started.
We all have the same 24-hours in a day. How you spend that time, plays a integral role in influencing the career path that many people choose to embark on. But when you’re presented with an opportunity to secure a bag doing something self-taught, something so purposeful, it makes the experience all the more worthwhile.
Tap in with us, as we experience Supa Dupa’s world through this over-the-phone interview where we discuss his inspirations, new projects and more.
