Todd Starr a filmmaker, producer, Founder and President of StarrMaker Films since 2011 is a native of Washington, DC. Todd is quite talented and his resume speaks for itself. At the age of 4 or 5 he was greatly inspired by the works of the late Michael Jackson. His dream to become an entertainer of some sort was destined to happen once he saw the stellar performance of “Billy Jean” by Jackson on the Motown 25 Anniversary Special. Over the past 15 years Todd has been engaged in numerous aspects of the entertainment world.

He first studied in Theatre Technology and Sound Engineering at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, DC under the late Kenneth Daughtry. Todd received an undergraduate degree in Music & Sound Engineering Productions at Valencia College in Orlando, Florida and later went on to study Digital Filmmaking at the Arts Institute of Washington in the District of Columbia. He is a member of IATSE Local 22 Union that employs theatre and musical production technicians for stage settings. He has assisted with the stage settings and productions of such entertainers as Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, The Dave Mathews Band and WWE’s Monday Night Raw (a weekly wrestling show) to name a few.

Separate of his work in the Union, he has filmed and recorded for Tavis Smiley, Dr. Cornel West, Dr. Gardner Taylor and Congressman John Conyers, Jr. He has filmed other events at different types of venues like schools, clubs, festivals, private affairs, etc. Todd is presently working on a documentary production of his world renown brother and Grammy Award Winner, Bassist Ben Williams.
