A little history behind Hector”The Director”
Let me start off by saying thank YOU for visiting my web page, my name is Hector Nava from Brooklyn, New York.
I go by the nickname of Hector”The Director” a nickname I got from my first documentary I directed in memory of a good friend Josh D Crouch aka LEFTist back in the year 2007, I am proud to say that I produced an 1 hour and 12 minutes long with very little knowledge of video editing.
After that project many friends of Josh who were music artists and actors asked me to help them to record their music shows and to create for them small video press kits, some of this artist were local in Bushwick musicians like Mindspray crew, Propaganda Anonymous, Bisco Smith and Broke Mc.
Some of these projects were mutual collaborations and helped me to to learn more about color correction, jump cuts and improve on my directing techniques. In the same year I founded the company Lasekx Productions and I was mainly a solo man, learning how to venture into the business of marketing and design at the same time. I got the chance to work with many cool projects such as Nolan Lee-Suit it up, Smeth Clothing, Sexy Ann, Ashley Sexy music video & For my homie LEFTist-music video.
In the Year 2009 to the end of 2011, I end up getting an associates degree on Web & Interactive media from the Art Institute of New York City. This program helped to learn the more proper way to edit videos, work with a full video productions team and to work in a instructed way.
I started to work less on music videos while learning more about photography, graphic & web design. In this period I still did some video work and the blend of graphics and photos as part of my video editing style. Some of the people work with at the time was Bisco Smith for the second time on the music video “Morning Breath” and Few commercials for Bisco Smith newest album at the time, I also worked with a new New Jersey Entertainment company called Em Theories, which I designed their logo and collaborate with one of their follow group artists call RAW NATURE, in which with did a small music video.
It’s been a magical decade since I started my creative career,I can share that just like I have mature over the years on a personal level my work has as well. Lasekx Productions become Lasekx Entertainment and is pretty much still involve into music but mainly to promote independent artist and still produced few interviews and music videos but not as active as the early years.
I am currently working on a clothing line and improving my coding education, my latest work can be found in this website and also news regarding up coming videos and projects.
I want to thank you for reading this about me page, I feel this is a great way to not just share something of me but to show where I am coming from with my multimedia career. Please feel free to contact me if you want to hire me or to collaborate on a visual project. Gob Bless you and Stay SERIO.
