Terrance Smalls, Jr. is a Baltimore Native who applies his creative vision through filmmaking. Inspired by the iconic Black filmmakers of the 1990s, he aims to create coming of age stories centered around the multifaceted reality of the Black experience. As a writer, director, and cinematographer Terrance is versed in various components of the filmmaking process, gaining his start initially though music videos for up-and-coming Baltimore artists, and later expanding to work with various organizations and corporations such as Red Bull, CBS, Atlantic Records, and Westbrook Productions. As a creative medium, Terrance sees film as a way to bring together polarized realms of the creative sector, and finds that its true power lies in the ability to create space for those who have not yet had the opportunity to showcase their talents, stories, and abilities.
