TNTALK: VISUALS WITH J.STUKES

E.Nigma is a force by himself, but when he links up with one of his homies he takes it to another level. One of those long time partners aside from Mello Marc, is none other than videographer (among many other things), Julius Stukes. From First Things First to Fall Back (Remix) and everything in between nothing but fire graces the screen, making it hard to choose a favorite. We spoke to Julius about working with E.Nigma, check that out & watch their catalog together below.

Working with J.Stukes is always a great day. Not only is the work exciting, but I always walk away with some new perspective on approaching visuals and music. I admire that he’s always genuine in his support and feedback, because that allows me to be at my best & see things from a refreshing point of view. The way we’ve been able to grow together, and still do our own thing is a blessing. Hopefully I can work with Julius the rest of my career. His energy is legendary.

KNOWING HE AND E.NIGMA WERE GOING TO DO GREAT WORK

JULIUS: Sure did. He's one of my favs. They say you should never meet your favorite rapper because they're nothing like their rhymes. Edot changed all that, he's an actual friend. His music is incredible. It's that old school NYC sound. Then when I met him in real life, it was even better. Good vibes.

MINDSET WHEN IT COMES TO SHOOTING VISUALS FOR ARTISTS, BRANDS, ETC

JULIUS: Evolution and risk. I'm always doing something different on set and trying new things. I always want the visuals to be better and than the last. Look at the date in the SOS video, then watch the scene of him posing. That's the mannequin challenge before the mannequin challenge. We were doing something fresh, and I was satisfied with it. Then next visual will more than likely be out of his comfort zone, only because of the experimenting I've done in the past.
