My name is Xavier, and I’m a Filmmaker that lives in Los Angeles, California. I grew up in Bloomington and attended Templeton Elementary, Jackson Creek Middle School, Bloomington South High School, and Indiana University. I moved to Los Angeles in 2011 with a dream of making a living as a Filmmaker.


At the moment it felt far-fetched but now that I’m here, I get to see that everything has a process and a language that must be respected. By simply shifting your perspective and learning the right process, anything is possible. I've gotten to work alongside some iconic artists and brands such as Adidas, Cardi B, Garth Brooks, Duke Dumont, Pleasures, A$ap Rocky, YG, G-Eazy, IDK, Brooklyn Circus, Drake, Nike, the Chain Smokers, and many more. Now it’s important for me to pay it forward and challenge you! This course will inspire you to look deeper at the possibilities around you.

We will focus on creating a film from start to finish. Explore Xavier's work on Instagram at @goodboyshady. Xavier is part owner of @gustothirtyfive, a 35mm film initiative.
