Kai Crawford-Director/Producer

A filmmaker that makes it happen. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Kai Crawford was inspired by the films of Spike Lee to become a filmmaker. Kai directed and edited the documentary feature, Akon "The Journey", commercials for Ford Taurus, and music videos for recording artists including Jason Derulo’s “In My Head”, BeBe & CeCe Winan’s “Close To You”, T.I’s “What’s Up, What’s Haapnin”, Akon’s "Locked Up", Yung Joc’s "I Know You See It", and T-Pain's "I'm Sprung".

While pursuing his BA in Mass Media Arts (Radio/TV/Film) at Clark Atlanta University, Kai worked as an intern at So So Def Recordings and LaFace Records. At So So Def, Kai served as the A&R assistant to BME Recording artist, LIL JON. With Lil Jon, he scouted for new talent at nightclubs and talent shows.

It wasn’t until Kai started working in the Video Production Department at LaFace Records that he knew music videos were his niche, and from there he went on to pursue a career directing music videos. His videos for Jason Derulo’s “In My Head” and Akon's "Locked Up" received VMA nominations and he won “Best Comedy Video” for Hotsylz’s “Looking Boy” at the 2008 BET Awards.
