Mike Rhodes is one of the most exciting new talents in the industry. His artistic, unfiltered visual style has made Mike one of the most sought after filmmakers in New York's diverse underground community. As a socially conscientious millennial, Mike's work is an exploration of the latest cutting edge music scenes of New York City, Toronto, and Montreal. He has brought authenticity, grit, and culture to his music videos, commercials and original content.
Born in Hartford CT, Mike was inspired by the visionary work of documentarian Errol Morris. Mike's concern for the social progress of New York's inner city youth is displayed in his work as he documents life as it is meant to be seen. He calls his work "authentic handcrafted cinema." It's his innate ability to capture those honest and emotional moments of his subjects and environments that sets him apart from his contemporaries.
His most recent commercial work for Adidas' "The Next Generation," Unicef "Children of Haiti" as well as the short films "An Afternoon with Hafftka," profiling Brooklyn's world renowned expressionist painter Michael Hafftka and Hypebeast's "For The Love of Design," an introspective look into Kanye West's world famous designer Susan Linss are true testaments to Mike's commitment to his artistry and culture.
