iamthenublack: Buki Koshoni
Buki is one of the brightest Directing/Photographic talents to hit the London scene. His background was in production working for the likes of Great Guns, Godman, Optomen Television and Vertigo Films.
Buki graduated to Director/Photographer some time ago and was rewarded with his first short film becoming an award-winning piece.
Buki has directed and shot a number of Music Promos and Fashion Shoots since,
his most recent directing credits include:
Cover Story / Hackett London – Commercial
Amnesty International – Commercial,
All That I want-Music Promo.
His fashion led Art Direction has seen him published in various magazines, including Noise and WIG magazine and is currently in talks with a number of magazines on collaborative projects.
Buki’s enthusiasm and love for Directing and Photography make him an ideal choice for any production/publication – infectiously enthusiastic, with a genuine passion for what he does.
Favourite lyric from a song
“One good thing about Music, when it hits you feel no pain.”
I’m inspired by
The truth, courage, strength, honour, dignity – hugely difficult words to live by, but I try. Creatively, I’m inspired by creative truth and authenticity. By this I mean the ability to express a creative opinion, be it photographic, written or otherwise, unencumbered by fear, self doubt or prejudice. To create out loud the truth of the work with no compromise or Concessions.
